Before and After Screenshot

I made a breakable object and the simulation is fine. But when I bake the simulation all the pieces of the breakable object just stack in the same place in space.

The pieces are driven by a cube the first 60 frames, then the simulation makes the rest.

I found the answer.

  • First, the steps that caused the problem:

    After breaking the object using the cell fracture addon, I needed the physics of all the 700 pieces to be driven by an animation (they where parented to a cube which has keyframes to make everything "fall" in one piece).
    Then I keyframed the physics of one piece (1), but there where like 700 objects that I wanted to have that same behavior so to copy those keyframes I read that I just needed to link the animation data as I did (2).

  • How I found the problem:

    An action was shared linked by 757 objects (3).

  • Solution:

    So I selected my group of pieces, hit U to unlink the animation data (4) and then I baked the animation and everythig was almost fine. I didn't knew why but I simply had to unparent all the shards.
