Realistic Bouncing Balls

Hey guys, this is due friday and I'd love to know what you all think. If you have any suggestions for improvement, please let me know!
Sorry about the balls stopping on the right, I know it's a bit distracting but I thought it wouldn't get rendered.

Re: Realistic Bouncing Balls

very nice and interesting excersise!   I think the main problem with the different balls are the falling part.. you have to adjust your spacing to make it look less floaty... taking the example of the heavier ball falling.. in real life a ball like that would fall faster and won't have too much friction going forward...  the same with the lighter ball is too bouncy for its fall.. when it falls feels like the weight of a ballon but after bounces and kinda stays in place looks with a different weight.. try to separate a bit the timing in the bounces and move it forward a bit... the middle ball looks good to me smile but again.. there is something in its fall and last bounce that has to be checked.

hope this helps smile

Re: Realistic Bouncing Balls

Cool yeah, thanks a lot!

I think I'm hearing slow down the Beachball's fall and bounce to make it more airy.
I think the rubber ball accelerates forward on the first fall which I can fix, but I'll have to look more closely at its last bounce.
The bowling ball should fall faster.

Re: Realistic Bouncing Balls

nice one, i agree with daniel's comment. the middle one is the most believable, but the other two unfortunately aren't.
im sure you can fix that smile
cheers.
