This is just a collection of all my attempts I made for class (30th Sept 14).
I tried to get the squash and stretch technique right but the ball ended up being a completely different size from the beginning of the animation and at points I had too many key frames and I wasn’t sure how to get rid of them. Like I said in my previous post I think I definitely need to learn about Maya more and get used to the controls.
For the first few tries I didn’t want anything there for the ball to be stopped by, I just wanted to focus on the ball bouncing forwards. At a later point I added in the wall for it be stopped by. I kept it simple because I didn’t want to make things difficult for myself.
