On one sheet of paper, sketch out the poses of two different balls bouncing with forward momentum: a light ping pong ball and a heavy bowling ball. The two different drawings should not overlap, but should drawn side-by-side or above-and-below so they can be compared.
Draw enough frames such that we can see the balls roll to a stop. Pay close attention the the spacing! When it slows down, the spacing decreases. When it speeds up, the spacing increases!
Assuming 24 frames per second, draw a pose every two frames. This is called animating on "2s". For each second of time that passes with this animation, you will see 12 drawings.
You'll need to emphasize the contrast between the different weights. Pay close attention to these principles:
After you have finished your sketches scan them in. Check out this scanning tutorial to learn how to do this. Save your scan as bb_planning_sheet.jpg.
Animate a light ping pong ball and a heavy bowling ball bouncing side-by-side in 3D using Maya. Go through the 3D ball animation tutorial to accomplish this. The heavy ball should bounce and roll to a stop, but the light ball only needs to bounce while the heavy ball is still moving (with a minimum of three or four bounces).
Turn in both the Maya and AVI files specified under Part 2A and Part 2B.
You will be turning your files into Canvas. Below is a check list of what you will be turning in and what those documents should be named:
