I want to create in blender a scene like this one, attached here. I have a past in cinema 4d, there was very easy to create this. I tried in blender in this way: I create a soft body sphere and a plane with collision physics. I tried to modify the "Friction settings" but nothing happen. How works friction with collision and soft body in blender?

enter image description here

You have basically 2 options that influence Friction in Soft Body simulation. Make it 3.

Collision object:

Here only Damping will influence friction of the simulation. Less Damping = less friction.

Friction in these settings is only for Cloth.


Soft Body object:

In Soft Body object settings Friction is self explanatory but it seems that Mass is also influencing how friction will behave.
