A Whole Group of Bouncing Balls
Friday we had our second animation workshop, this time focusing on spacing and timing in the animation. With out good timing and spacing you find yourself creating only movement.
Also it is crucial to pay attention to forces such as gravity or frictional forces.
Subsequently, to put it in practise we were asked to animate three different balls ; rubber, bowling and ping-pong balls.
Meg Bisineer strongly recommended first plan the the animation including considerations about the difference of materials and how it can be conveyed in timing and spacing .
This is .. my quit scary looking plans of animation, but they were helpfull. I spent half of the time planing the movement and the other half just redrawing and correcting. Still.. I wouldn;t guess the tipes of ball bouncing..
