PhysX Static Actor Component

The PhysX static actor component is used to represent static collision geomtry. Most geometry in a scene should be static, meaning that it never moves, rotates, scales or is animated in any way. Static geometry is generally faster to process, and in the case of physics simulations, only static actors may use concave collision geometry.

All PhysX shapes that can be found in the hierarchy below the static actor are combined to form the compound shape of the actor. However, if any other actor (static or dynamic) is part of the hierarchy below the static actor, the shapes below that object are ignored for this actor. Additionally, if the static actor itself references a collision mesh, it will also become part of the actor compound shape. Only static actors are able to reference concave triangle collision meshes.

If you need your geometry to be able to move, use a dynamic actor instead.
