Animation with a spiderwire and weights

I have to make an animation with weights falling from the sky to an elastic spiderwire. Here are 4 images from the storyboard. For the left part with the steel bar, I did it on After Effects.
For the right part, I thought it would be easier on Adobe Character. In Adobe Character, I used the "Physics", Collision and particle (in canon mode) functions to drop my weights. The spiderwire is also in collision mode. But I can't get the spiderwire to stretch with the weight of the weights. I added a draggable handle in the middle of the wire. I succeeded to create the principle of animation by manipulating live, but not to record it : impossible to properly wedge when to pull it (I attach a .mov file which shows my tests, but it's a screenshot by QuickTime, not a render). It is very hazardous, I cannot trigger the fall of the weights at a precise moment to synchronize the fall with the deformation of the spiderwire. Can someone advise me to record this animation?
