DAT and MCX files ...(that sounds like a plug-in) ...
Those should go into the “Extensions” folder, within the main Carrara program folder,. You can also create Sub folders, to keep additional plug-ins separate from the “default” carrara extensions.
Windows Automatic Update (which happily reboots your system while you’re working in your favourite software)
how wonderful ! ....the skills of these programmers must take years to develop. (sarcasm )
not a dumb question.
Do things get stickier the higher the friction? Or lower?
It should get stickier, the higher the friction value,.. bearing in mind that physics is all about both surfaces.
for example, throwing something sticky against a block of ice,... the sticky thing will slide down the ice, since the ice isn’t sticky.
friction also depends on the amount of surface area in contact, and the forces in the scene such as gravity.
if you fake the gravity with a direction force,. then you can control the amount of gravity force which will cause the object to drop to the floor.
If you add a point force,. or a damping force,.. then you may be able to “Hold” the objects in the “stuck to the wall” position.
Also,.. bear in mind that Bullet physics in Carrara isn’t fully developed yet,. and some things don’t work as they should right now.
