Hey, Wolfor. Simple and well done piece.

Heh, thanks. It's simple because of my biggest weakness: finding good ideas big_smile But on the other hand, it was done very fast big_smile

Re: Mc 17: Bouncing a ball off a wall

Thanks blackbird256 for the critique - for some reason even though I'm subscribed to this topic I didn't receive a notification that it updated, so just seeing this now.  Your animation is quite convincing, one thing that catches my eye is that there is a speed up at the end of the bounce from frame 44-51 (maybe that the path of movement is more of a tear shape than an arc affects it?). Take it or leave it just thought I should share my impression smile Cheers ~

esquilogp what a fun/unique idea for the ball bounce !  Thanks for sharing the links, I have them bookmarked and the PDF booklet downloaded.

Re: Mc 17: Bouncing a ball off a wall

Here's the second version of the heavy/light ball animation based on blackbird's critique, I re-animated the heavy ball and added rotation:

Avijit - great progress, but I still feel like it needs work to be more convincing. About the heavier ball - I remember hearing that heavier objects take more energy to start moving but when they are it takes longer for them to come to a stop. Maybe it would help to start off further up the ramp a bit slow and build up speed, then allow more time for it to come to a complete stop. When it first bounces on landing it is in the air for three frames, experiment with less frames and even less bounces to further sell the weight. I like the beach balls bounces when it hits the ground but the timing still needs work prior to this.

Re: Mc 17: Bouncing a ball off a wall

Hey all! I've been reading up on animation principles, and have been practicing a lot. I also got some help from Staker smile. This is my final result, which I feel is a massive improvement to my first one.

Re: Mc 17: Bouncing a ball off a wall

Hey mango nice job.
Just watch out on your consistency, the ball seems like its 3 different balls. It falls like a bowling ball on the initial jump. Then it bounces up really fast like a ping pong ball.
Italso has some speed issues in the forward progression. Check the blog and look at graph editor images then look at yours, and im sure you will be able to see where your mistake is.
Keep up the good work.


me fail english, thats umpossible.

Re: Mc 17: Bouncing a ball off a wall

Hope every one had a great weekend. I don't know if anyone's gonna change anything at this point but I thought I'd share my thoughts with everyone.

Klaw,
your piece is looking good. Am still excited every time I look at the triangles spinning. I just love and respect the use of props so much (I can't get the hang of it just yet). Maybe the red ball could bounce a little as it falls. You know, impact of gravity and all.

Avjit,
am loving your piece so much. The only short coming is that the heavy ball's rotation comes to a weird stop rather than gradually slowing out like the light one. But I think think the piece itself is good enough.

Jooan,
hmmm... 3 balls is brave and challenging. There's just one problem I will point out and it has nothing to do with animation. The problem is that you handed your piece in so late. I think you should try to hand in early so the fellows here can help you move your piece further along and make it so much netter before the next MC comes in. (People tend to lose interest in one once the next one comes in.) Otherwise, I understand that, like many of us, you're still new to animation so keep animating. I hope to see you improve.

Mango,
I think there's something wrong with my PC coz all I get is a white screen or a black screen whenever I try to view your piece.

Re: Mc 17: Bouncing a ball off a wall

Thanks blackbird256 your right smile next time i will try make some animation earlier and easier. I think that i want too much at once and this is the main reason poor animation.

Re: Mc 17: Bouncing a ball off a wall

@cosmicfool: Thanks for the c'n'c. I might try to improve it when I get the time smile.

@blackbird256: I doon't have a problem with my PC. I've tried giving the link to other people after you said you couldn't view it the first time, but they could see it fine. It's .mov, .h264 encoded. What browser/program/plugin are you using to view it? Hopefully we can sort it out smile

So I know this is really too late, but I thought I'd post my own ball against a wall! I'm using a painstaking filming technique so all the little things I want to change will either have to wait or be fixed next time I try something like this. I really enjoyed this actually! I did change some of the frames, the start is too fast for 2s and the end is 1s and 2s, the arc is a little off too...

Re: Mc 17: Bouncing a ball off a wall

This is great! Some more people venturing in the 2D approach smile And the mini challenges are set up so anyone can post anything at any time if they want to, you'll just wont get included in the MC compilation, that all.
So keep going!
