The bouncing ball exercise. What’s the big deal?!

Hello everyone! This weekend, the beginner’s class is on animation, where we’ll be doing the “timeless” bouncing ball exercise. This is one of the standard animation exercises a young animator can do as it covers many of the principles used in lots of different kinds of actions. As well as that, it’s a great exercise for getting you stuck in to Maya and the Graph Editor.

But, don’t just take my word for it – check out this article from Digital Tutors on why the bouncing ball exercise is so important.

See you on Saturday!
