Bouncing Ball

Jessie jots...

Life has to go on... I'm moving on. We all learn something new every day and I'm learning how to switch off what's negative and take in the positive.


So I just uploaded a movie on board here. Never in a million years I think I will learn how to animate digitally. Imagine me going bananas several times in the library and turning into a red tomato.. yup, not pretty. For this project which we have work over the week but didn't really learn how to render until last Monday, has made me spent 8 hours completing a 9-second show of the ball bouncing using Maya. I came out of the library, dehydrated. I DIE... go bananas, and even eat bananas! I will never be an animator... but I secretly enjoy looking at the finish product and kinda pat myself at the back for meeting all of the requirements but of course, lacking the wow factor cos' I am a graphic designer. hehe

Have a good weekend!

Actually I'm very impressed with the bouncing balls because I don't know how to do it :x Or maybe I like all things bouncy :x :x

What was I thinking? Ball not balls... I must be thinking of something else while typing. Sorry.

Hey guys, it's ok... have finally learn how to cope with it. Thanks all.

Don't be too impress with my work though... many of my classmates do much, much better job than me. :)

I think it's a great video! I would never know how to do all that stuff--so complex & in 3D!!
