Animating Glue Strength


Recommended Posts

Hi all, first of I apologise as I am new to houdini so you will have to bare with me a little.

I have fractured a box using the Voronoi fracture sop as you can see in the attached image.

I am looking for a method where I can control which pieces fall away under gravity and which stay where they are, id like to be able to animate it as well.

My first thought was to use gravity and try and limit which pieces it affects and animate it over time, so the pieces in the center or at one of the edges start to fall first then it progresses to the other pieces. I tried creating a group at geometry level and using that in the gravity field but I couldnt get it to work.

My second thought was to use a Glue object and animate the glue strength for the individual pieces, but not sure if thats possible or if thats the right way to go about it.

I was wondering whats the best way to go about creating such an effect?
