[Basics] MC Week 1 - Ball Bounce - Start 6.6.2010/End 6.13.2010

So I figured we'd best start this out with the staple of any animators practice - a bouncing ball.

What to do: Animate a bouncing ball of any weight, or two or more balls interacting
Time limit: Since it is rather simple, the time limit for this weeks competition will be 12 Hours. There is no prize so don't cheat yourself. In the "real world" you would have a time limit/deadline, so use this as practice.
Process: It is okay to take this one past blocking, and in fact is probably necessary.

The last day to turn it in is next Sunday, 6.13.2010. Please only post the link as specified in the FAQ thread.

Now get bouncin'!

Didn't spend too much time on it, but figured I'd give it a try!

Re: [Basics] MC Week 1 - Ball Bounce - Start 6.6.2010/End 6.13.2010

i have made two ball bounce animations.

For the first one, i first recorded the audio and proceeded with the animation.its' supposed to be a heavy tennis ball.

Direct Link




The second one is without any squash n stretch..a medium weight plastic ball..just trying to be subtle..

@ TheEnd
On the second video -  everything is happening pretty fast, especially the first fall. And from the angle that its originally falling from, it feels a little weird that is bounces so far to the right. Also feels like its picking up speed after the first wall bounce

@Kyle
Thanks, i'll try to bring some time lag and strengthen the falling arc of the initial fall.
Hope that will help.

@kiopaa looking good.
found the ball a little too stretched after the second collision( with the small wall)
and the ball seems to have lost it's momentum too early.would love to see it rolling.

can you please post it in quicktime??with frame counters??would love to have a closer look.

So I haven't used Flash since school, so I figured this would be a fun time to play with it again

Re: [Basics] MC Week 1 - Ball Bounce - Start 6.6.2010/End 6.13.2010

I hate to say but I can't get .mov file, and the frame counter doesn't render out for some reason. Am I supposed to enable something somewhere?

I feel like there's still a little merit to submitting it seeing as I might grasp some general critique. I'll try again tomorrow in a frame counter and mov.

I'm pretty new at this whole animation thing.

@booleanspline
your video looks great but if you look close to the ball it rotates back when it hits the wall.
i think it would be better to let it rotate back when it hits the ground and no rotations between the wall and the first ground hit
