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!
