Default shatter effect?

Hey guys,.

I have a shot that i need an object shattering. My character interects with this object and is therefore keyframed. I duplicated it and keyed the visibility.

The on the duped object used that as my 'shattered' object. However when i run it, doesnt shatter. Does anyone know how to do it? or a script.

The object slides off the shelf and on to the floor

thank you very much in advance
those who succeed are only the failures that never gave up.

are you using dynamics? or ndynamics?

dynamics has a shatter effect, it breaks your object up and turns the pieces into rigid bodies which you can then attach gravity onto it

that's a "Ch" pronounced as a "K"

Computer skills I should have:
Objective C, C#, Java, MEL. Python, C++, XML, JavaScript, XSLT, HTML, SQL, CSS, FXScript, Clips, SOAR, ActionScript, OpenGL, DirectX
Maya, XSI, Photoshop, AfterEffects, Motion, Illustrator, Flash, Swift3D
