Have a Ball

Check out the new clip on the Antics site by CJ AMBROSIA, it's really cool. I like the guy getting hit on the head and the jet shots. Good use of Antics for a cute idea. Be nice to hear how the approached the ball motion. I guess you have some choice there, you could set up a path, get the ball spinning and then have another axis follow the path, you could do it with poses, although only for straight lines, Or, you could use a camera to keyframe the positions and then link your spinning ball to the camera. You only use the camera as a way of getting a keyframable motion. This way you can set your curves, to get the bounce etc. Try spinning the ball on a little room and then tell the room to move around, this might make direction easier.

Anyway, thanks for sharing CJ.
Look forward to the next one.
