Reanimated the truck to have more inertia as suggested by the mentors.
Added more money bills and had them continue in shot 3. Last week I had issue with the bills emitting in the first frame being slow to any forces. I later found out it was emitting 2 geos on the first frame stuck to each other which would make them heavier. I added a SOP solver to delete the that first frame during simulation. But that would break the solver and would not recover even after deleting the sop solver.
I simulated the the money bills flying in the third shot for continuity. And I copied over an extended smoke drift effect to the the third shot.
