Bouncing Ball

The Challenge

Create a simple bouncing ball, a standard test of any animator.

 

The Solution

I created a bouncing basketball with squash-and-stretch effects in an infinite loop with sound effects synced to the animation. A shadow was added with scripting to track the ball perfectly on the ground.

 

Production

This project was completed in early 2011, towards the end of the glory days of Adobe Flash.
