Brian Lemay's Animation Kits
Level 1 - 1
Perpetual Ball Bounce Assignment

This is the animation completely inbetweened.

Press the play button to watch the animation play.

Use the control bar or the single frame advance button to view the individual frames.

You can see the ball bouncing up and down on the spot to the timing of one bounce per second. Remember when I asked you to do the counting out loud and bob your head up and down to the count? Is this how you imagined it would be?

When you animate anything you should be able to get a mental picture of the movement based on any type of a beat, whether it is constant or not. Use a stop watch to get the timing for movements exact and try things out a number of different ways until you get that "just right" timing.
