The Simulate animation perform a multiple-step simulation at each frame.

You can combine this animation with other animations which control atoms positions to perform constrained simulations.

You can use the Record path animation to save the trajectory generated by the simulation.

Adding the animation#

Double-click on the Simulate animation effect in the Animation panel of the Animator. The keyframe will be placed at the current frame, move it if needed.


The Animator executes animations from the top down, so place the Simulate animation after the ones which generates the starting positions of the simulation.


You can always move the keyframes of the animation.
