Maya Tip - Freezing Transformation Before dynamics

Whenever applying dynamic simulations like rigid body dynamics to an object, you should freeze it's transformations because simulations like these use transformation information. Select the object and go to modify>freeze transformations. Now go to edit>delete by type>history, with the object selected. This tip is not relevant when working with nCloth because nCloth does not use an objects transformations.

Wow, that's exactly the information I was looking for. You even saved me my next search for deleting the history of an object. Every other tutorial was talking about freezing the transforms in the attributes window. Thanks.
