Can't see my rigid body moving down in the results

Can't see my rigid body moving down in the results

Can't see my rigid body moving down in the results

So I can see the movement in preview and I get a contact stress in the results.
However in the results, the rigid body (outline) doesn't move along with each frame, it just stays displayed in its original position.

I guess it's a setting in results post processing but I can't figure out which one.

On that note, does anyone know if there is a way to look up these kind of silly technicalities because it hardly is doable to keep posting all this stuff on a forum.

RE: Can't see my rigid body moving down in the results

Did you check the animate button?

RE: Can't see my rigid body moving down in the results

Yes, and it does animate. So my deformable deforms.
I just don't see the rigid body pressing against it, it just hovers over it in the starting position.

RE: Can't see my rigid body moving down in the results

ya.. that will not move.That shows the body in it's undeformed condition. It is for your reference. One shows the body without any deformation and the other shows how it will deform for the specified loading.

If you don't want to see the undeformed body you can avoid it by uncheking the show undeformed in the deform attributes tab.
