Bouncing Ball – UNIT 52


To produce this animation of a bouncing ball I began  with a polygon sphere Screen Shot 2017-01-25 at 09.22.47.png I used f0rward kinematics to keyframe the ball to move and bounce.

When creating the ball’s bouncing movement I noticed that the animation was a little stiff, based on my research a ball should bounce quite smoothly. Therefore to smooth out the animation I have opened up the graph editor (Seen Above) which allowed me to edit the movements curves. I clicked the tool ( Screen Shot 2017-01-25 at 09.28.11.png) which allowed me to smoothen out the lines curves.

Finally, playblast allowed me to output a simple video file of the animation (Seen bellow)
