Physics (parent task)
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Parent task to gather topics needed to get physics working in 2.8, mainly by updating physics systems to be copy-on-write aware.

  • Dynamic Paint
    • No tested yet.
    • Part of the problem is lack of viewport drawing to see if it updates (T56349).

@Brecht Van Lommel (brecht), i am not sure what is exactly expected from me here.

Smoke does not update properly until changing frames.

Pretty much sure you're referring to the issues related on properties update. This is fixed after rB9b8d479e414.

Part of the problem is lack of viewport drawing to see if it updates (T56349).

I don't do viewport, and not sure how to test things without visual feedback.

I expect all the physics system to get some basic test to see if they can be edited, baked, and just generally work ok for basic usage. Further bugs we can handle in the bug tracker.

As far as I know the one system that has not been tested yet is dynamic paint. I don't expect you to fix the drawing issue, but it should be possible to tests dynamic paint without that by going into LookDev mode and checking if vertex colors or textures part of the material are updating correctly there.

Seems we can consider this resolved now, and treat the remaining issues as bugs in the tracker.
