The first 3d animation task we where given was to animate two bouncing balls, one heavy ball and one light. Even though this is a simple task i have learnt allot on how to generally animate in Maya and some basic principles of how to give a ball life by applying the stretch and squash principles. I found Maya tricky to use to start with because i had never used software like it before. But i am really keen to get to grips with the software and to create more interesting animations.
I wasn't particularly happy with the outcome of this fist task because i felt that i could of done it better but it did teach me some of the basics of Maya.
