    Jiggle deformer problem

    Hopefully this is an easy one. Why is it that when I apply a gravity field to an object with a jiggle deformer, the object will fall correctly but will jiggle endlessly? I tried adjusting the damping but that only seems to change how violent the endless jiggling is.

    Hi gorlar! First let me welcome you to the DT community! The jiggle deformer can be controlled either by using the settings within the jiggle node itself in the attribute editor, or by using the Paint Jiggle Weights Tool. Here's a quick example of how you can use those in order to control the effect of your jiggle deformer on your object. Hope it helps!

    Here's a link to the Animating Cartoon Characters in Maya course that was referenced in the video. If it helps, here's the scene I used for the video:
