View Full Version : 1st animation - ball bounce
18-04-2004, 04:12 AM
I havent posted here in a while.
This is my first animation in Maya. We have to do a ball bounce animation, but this is just a test.
let me know whats good and bad about it.

Good start. The ball should stretch out as it falls and squash at impact. Right now your ball is going back to a sphere before impact, looks off.

I would agree with Wolfe, it is prettymuch doing a pre-emptive squash on hitting the ground. just another key could change that around . Otherwise looks good.

hey i would agree with the above,
tell me what sort of course are you doing?
i just wonder cos ive never used maya, and am thinking of starting to learn

I have fixed the ball from returning to a sphere before impact, but I need to render it out again. I also fixed the beginning so it has a little bit of a stretch before it hits the ground the first time.
martimus - right now it is a basic my animation class. we are learning the basics of keyframing, deformers(squash and stretch) and eventually a little about fluids. I had a basic nurbs modelling class before this one. Hope to learn alot more on my own time as well.
I will post the update tonight and show you the basics of my animation.(This ball bounce was just a test to get the basics down.)

Thanks for the help guys.
I have started the animation for the project.
the ball bounce was just the test.
Here is a playblast of the music scale version.
I know there is something not right about it so thats why I am posting it here.
It is a tripos site so I apologize. I also dont have a mirror site for it.
Let me know some critiques! File is music scale

The ball squeases itself before hitt the ground, thats seams to be a bit wicked :)

I love the music scale animation!! very funny :D
the comments on the other animation you already have: the ball is stretched before it hits the ground and it squashes relatively much considering its initial speed.. I'll try to create a similar ball movement here :)
