Is there any simple method to fill a container with balls?
Let's say I would like to model a glass receptacle for confetti or candy.
Adding spheres one by one is the only solution, or is there a way with particle systems, some plugin, etc ?

Dunno why it wont post full size

Right click toolbar > turn on phsyx toolbar > select balls > set selected as dynamic rigid body > select cyclinder/bowl > set selected as rigid body > modifier stack - shape type: original > start simulation

Sorry to bother you again...
I have tried the plugin, it was working perfectly at first, but now all the spheres are bouncing high!
I did not touch any settings except those you told me.
I have also tried to reinstall the plugin, but nothing, the spheres instead of falling in the basket, fly around.
please help :(

make sure in the modifier stack you have shape type: original. if this is set to concave or something they will treat the top of the cyclinder as solid

Now it works again.
But I don't know why, because last time I've set it to original, believe me. Your instructions were more than clear. Some settings must have changed by itself.
Thank you for your prompt answer.
