im confused on when your lowering amount of frames in the beginning . are you following a set amount each ? or winging it ?
The amount of frames for each bounce depends on the distance it is falling/bouncing.The further it has to travel, the more frames it will take. But remember, the spacing will always increase on every frame on the way down.Start with your first drop - say if it takes 14 frames to fall. Then the next bounces will have to be less than that (14 frames was only 1 side of the bounce)The bounce after that will also have less frames until it stops bouncing.
There is a little bit of 'tweaking' the physics to make it look better than real life, but it is all based in reality. The physics you setup are in that first drop.
I hope that helps, Cherico.
thanks man think im getting it.
