Ultimate Ball Rig: A Free Squash and Stretch Scalable Bouncing Ball Rig (For Maya)

I created this ball rig for my upcoming animated short, but it could be used for some basic bouncing ball animation exercises as well.

It can do pretty much everything a bouncing ball rig should do, and a bit more:

  • It has squash and stretch controls.
  • These controls can be moved so that the stretching happens anywhere on the ball.
  • It has secondary rotation controls.
  • It’s scalable.
  • It’s free to download!
