I had to make it a preview because I couldn't make the panning work very well in flash, so I couldn't show the whole animation in a sensible way :l So this is the best part (in my opinion) but there's a bit before and after this animation that you'll have to click the link to see on youtube.
PHEW I'm finally done this big assignment where we had to make three quite big animations. the first one was the quadruped locomotion (I did an otter: fav.me/d6vmsro ) then there's one that I only did in sketches, might upload that later.. Then there's this final animation, where e we had to make a figure move through an obstacle course. The more it looked like it was struggling, the better, and of course keep weight in mind. It took about three days for me to animate this in flash, but I'm quite happy with how it turned out! boinggg
I'm an animation student myself and I've done my share of bouncing balls, but I don't think I've ever seen something get bounced into as a test.
Haha, true that! It's an interesting thing to animate..
Is there a big difference between something depressing and something squashing?
Hmm, same fundamental concepts I suppose.. Since the cat here is a not-very bouncy ball, the actual force comes from the fall, which stretches and depresses the ground, which transfers the bounce back into the cat, sending it up again... It's a tricky thing to try and explain it! I guess it's about the same thing that happens, only the ground squiches in the process, lol.
LOL HAHAHAHAH,MY CAT DOING THE SAME THING
why is it soo adorable!!!!
Such a cute little animation! Really great work on showing the weight! That's something I always struggle with
