some question about physic collision

If I want to translation or movement my charector

For Panda’s Built-in Physics Engine
I must use setVelocity right ?
or I must use setPos Instead

And For ODE
I must use addRelForce right ?

thx. :smiley:

this and the following pages should answer your questions

but BTW, for simple movement you don’t need any physics.
physics means here calculating forces and applying them on bodies to move them or to calculate the behavior of colliding bodies etc.

if you don’t need that, setPos() is all you need. i suppose you take a look at the samples (shipped with panda) or at the beginner sample in the manual

Okay thx for your reply :smiley:
