Hi

I have an object keyframe animated with DMM passive mode turn on, in some frame I turn it off to active the dmm simulation, but my object lose his momentum (speed and direction).
there is a way to keep it?

thanks you

red color is keyframe animation, green DMM

documentation says: "the object will simulate with an initial velocity equal to the most recent animated velocity. "
but as you can see, it lose it.

I have prepared a short tutorial based on your comment about the effects of altering key tangents. I'll post it shortly.

Good that you also figured it out :)
