View Full Version : 3d noob question: ball rolling on a path
13-07-2004, 11:36 PM
I'm pretty new to 3d (about a month with 3ds) and im starting to get interested into the animation part. Im working on a simple bouncing ball animation and i want the ball to roll after it stops bouncing but i have no clue how to do this.
Could someone show me how i would do this or maybe give me a link to a nice tutorial.
ps: this is my first post here so sorry if this has been asked before

i'm glad to hear you have an interest in 3d. although i have very limited experience with 3ds, i know you can find a lot of tutorials on www.3dcafe.com i hope this helps

thanks, i found what i needed on that site except i have one more very basic noobie question. What are expressions and how do i create them?

i dont mean to be an ass but you may like to read the Manual mate. ;)

The Manual and the Tutorials that come with 3ds are your best chance. I bought 3ds max 6 about 5 months ago and I'm still referring to it. Google is another good idea. Just search for 3ds max tutorials.

oops, just forgot to check the manual :mad:
i wouldn't suggest working with expressions until you learn more about the program and animating. A bouncing ball was my first animation too. Best of luck
