Ball 01: Bouncing Beach Ball

Some criticism of this animation was that when the ball was going down and bouncing off the ground it looked as if it was arching instead of bouncing down and up, also that the animation was slow compared to the reference footage. I will improve this video by making the keyframes closer so the animation is faster and making the bounch down more of a bounce instead of a ‘slide.’

Ball 02: Bouncing Golf Ball
While watching this animation people found that it had too much squash and stretch, as I noticed also but thought it worked well. I will improve this by making the squash and stretch more subtle.

Ball 03: Bouncing Heavy Weight Ball
Classmates said how this ball had a curve at the 2nd bounce instead of bouncing upward, that the second arch didn’t seem correct and that the roll at the end needed to be slowed down and shortened. I will successfully finish this animation by fixing the arches and bounces as well as shortening the roll at the end and increasing the space between the keyframes to slow down the roll.
