use morph to control speed of texture, used ball falling simulation to get rate of gravity. dynamics has option to save keyframes in command drop down in edit section. save to a motion file and read into modeler by using motion path extrude, morph object to this for gravity like acceleration in the texture. linear falloff in morph modeling doesn't create true acceleration(looks good but may not match the motion a falling object in the scene
