First attempt at complex obstacle drop

This is an exercise submission on the exercise Complex Obstacle Drop

This submission has passed!

Exercises are a great way to test what you've learned given certain restraints, while getting feedback from your peers. Plus, they're a lot of fun!

    Great start Juanig. I echo those below me. Slow down the bowling ball when it hits the flats and careful the basketball bounces don't randomly speed up. Keep it up!

    exercise accomplished...
    looks like believable movement...
    good work.

    Not bad Juanig. Not bad.

    This one is super complicated and you are definitely on the right track. It just needs a little more finesse. Make sure you rest your eyes regularly, otherwise your brain will start to play tricks on you. And then look at these things.

    Bowling ball:
    Think about when it should be speeding up and when it should be slowing down.
    At the moment, it speeds up on the flat ground and then becomes even. But really it should be slowing down from the moment it hits the flat section.
    If you have another look at this ball - I'm sure you will start to see how to make it better.

    Basket ball:
    Make sure the bounces are consistent and similar to the first bounce. That is drop that sets up the physics of the world so you should stay true to that. Look for the bounces that are just way too fast (which is most of them) and then slow them down by adding some frames.

    Rest your eyes and then come back to this exercise. You can move on at the same time - but make sure you do come back to this one. It’s hard, but it will make the other stuff easier ;)

    Keep going

    You might want to look over the entire animation of the basket ball because it's really weired (maybe work on the bouncing ball exercise). As for the boowling ball. It's seams better to me than the basket ball but there are still some problems to fix : for example, once it hits the flat ground surface, it accelarates for no reason towards the basket ball.
    I guess waylow could give you better feedback on this.
