Critique - Bouncing Balls (Frank)

Light Ball Bounce:

- Looks great! It's 99% a final, the only thing that I see, but it's really tiny, is at around frame 53 the amount of distance the ball travels screen left suddenly gets smaller. Check your courve in the graph editor to see how your curve looks like.

Medium Ball Bounce:

- Looks good, but it feels like it doesn't bounce as high as it should at frame 35 on, also it seems that it travels less far suddenly, everything seems to slow down. Check frame 40 to 41, I think that's when it happens.
The line through the ball for rotation is a good idea. But it looks like it rotates too much around the frame 65 area.

Heavy Ball Bounce:

- This one has one main problem. It doesn't look heavy. Check Joyes ball in the previous post, that one feels heavier. Yours right now looks more like a medium one.
With that being said, let's look at it as a medium one. I feel lik there should be another small bounce at frame 59. But the main thing to fix (besides the weight) is your spacing from frame 14 to 15. Take a dry erase marker (next post tonight will be only about the dry erase), draw a line at the top or bottom of the ball, from frame 12 to 15, you'll see how uneven it is.

Other than, good job, you're on the right track!
