Tutorial: Spinners & switch

Jason contacted us asking this:

“I’m creating a marble run scene using Newton 3 in AE. I’ve seen an example of what I’m after, but can’t seem to figure out how to make it nor can I find any assistance online for my problem. I want a marble to interact with ‘spinners’ as per the video link below : https://youtu.be/6XvEmLjaPdc?t=6 I’d also like the ‘marbles’ to interact with a ‘switch’ when they land. See video below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yeDDw… Are these scenarios workable in Newton please? If so, how should I be setting these up? Please refer to the image attached as reference. Kind regards, Jason”

And here’s our answer… 🙂

I’ll show you how to quickly set up a simple simulation in Adobe After Effects, send it to Newton3, use fixed objects to only rotate switch and spinners, tweak your scene to have the best result.
