naturalish ball bounce

Post by JohnHowes on Wed Apr 17, 2013 9:40 pm

i'm trying to make this bounce animation look like natural physics. I haven't yet messed with squash and stretch. I'm just focusing timing and position. Please give me notes Smile I'll return the favor when I can.

By the looks of it, it looks like this can be solved by your graph editor. because both balls do look a little too light. If you look, with out visual aid to help, they sort of do bounce in a wave like fashion, which means they are doing just that. I think just by making the sharp points on the editor may relieve the issue.

Hey John,

Increase the spacing as the ball hits the ground a leaves the ground. This will help with the floating that is happening.

Give that a shot and we'll take another look at it.

Good work!

that's looking smoother, just needs a little more to look better in the weight of the balls. the bigger ball still a little too light near the end bounces, and the smaller ball sort of slows down before it hits the big ball, and spins with out getting traction. just needs more on the graph editor.





Of course, even looking at this, I could be way off. If this doesn't work, sorry. but that is what I see.

Awesome notes Jon!

John H - JB's notes are right on with this. Apply what he is saying and your animation will look way better!

That is looking good John!

Take a look at your graph editor. It looks like there are some kinks in your Y translate. Clean those up and you should be good to go!
