Critique - Bouncing Balls (Marie)

Light Ball:

- Looks great! One detail thing, either have the movie be only 64 frames long, or smooth out the end of the roll of the ball. Right now the ball suddenly stops at frame 64.

Medium Ball:

- Looks good too. And same detail here, either stop the movie at frame 95 or smooth out the roll after frame 95.

Looking at both the Light and Medium Ball, they do feel similar in weight. I would make the Medium Ball a bit heavier. But the mechanics are good!

Heavy Ball:

- This one needs a bit more work. Check the spacing. From frame 1 to 2 it moves a certain distance, but then from 2 to 3 it moves a lot less screen right but too far down, and after that the spacing is very even until the ball hits the ground. Everything that falls will have a gradual increase of distance it covers. After the first hit the balls moves to far screen right, especially from 8 to 9 and from 9 to 10. The end should get smooth out as well.

Looking good, just a few things to fix on the heavy ball.
