Bouncing Ball

Bouncing Ball from Douglas Meloche on Vimeo.

At long last!! It’s finished, at least for the time being. The major issue I ran into was compensating for the change of force in the bounces whenever the ball changes direction. I had to make it believable while maintaining enough momentum to keep the ball bouncing for the allotted time. I ran into some issues while importing the video from the “Lunchbox”. I kept getting these odd skips and pauses during the process. So, I tried my best to edit them out.

I did have to make considerable changes to the under layer when it came to how many frames each bounce would be. Since I wanted to experiment using varying speeds, I had to continuously adapt to how the movement progressed.

Another project I fully intend to revisit (when I’m really, really, bored).

MAJOR ISSUE= I just noticed this, the video stretched my ball vertically. The first squash and the ball in resting position are very distorted. I’m not sure what happened to cause this distortion.

  1. GET RID OF the shadows that appear on the walls!! Nice idea, but it looks unintentional. Keep the shadows on the ground where they belong.
