Ball Bounce in MAYA

Spiky Ball

For the first ball bouncing animation in Maya, I thought I did pretty well. I think I did a good job at making the ball look like an actual bouncing ball in my opinion. I had a little trouble with spacing in this video however. Also, I think I need to exaggerate the squash and stretch more. Other than that I think I did pretty for my first Maya animation.

critique: ball moves to far to the left


For the second ball, I focuses more on timing and spacing of the ball. Im pretty happy with how this one turned out! It follows my reference very closely! However, I noticed that there is a spot after the ball is done bouncing where the ball speeds up and I couldn’t figure out how to fix it. I have a lot of frames for that sequence and they are all close together so I don’t know whats wrong. Overall I am really happy with this one in particular.

critique: Ball rolls to the right to much. The ball rolls to fast after bouncing. Slow things down.

Foam Ball

For this animation I really tried to make everything perfect. I immensely focused on timing and spacing of the ball. I also tried to make sure that there was the perfect amount of keyframes. I am most satisfied with this video because it follows the reference the closest.

critique: Bounces off the wall to far back.
