    Ball seems to float, too slow.

    submitted a second take that looks a lot better (I think :-)

    Works for me!

    Ok you’re onto something varkster but don’t forget that acceleration due to gravity is exponential.
    9.8 metres per second squared (until it hits terminal velocity).

    The thing that is important is the "squared", that is what makes gravity exponential.

    So what does that mean for the spacing?
    The spacing should reflect this behaviour and get exponentially bigger on the way down.
    If you pay close attention to your spacing you can see that it speeds up and then becomes a little too even.

    Bigger, bigger, bigger on the way down.
    But don’t worry too much about being perfectly true to the physics, animation is based on the real world but it can make it look better than real life ;)

    This means you can timing to make it look better.

    Agree with Phil!

    exercise accomplished...
    looks like bouncing, 5 loops...
    (looks floaty)
    good work.

    Hey varken, you have your timing down! Now you just need to fix your spacing. Its very very even right now so the animation feels weightless. Remember spacing should be tight at the top and start spreading apart as it falls to the ground (then mirror it on the way back up)
