3D Animation: Another Bouncing Ball?

Okay so I think I'm starting to get the hang of the Graph Editor. This wasn't as frustrating as the last one, but I did have some issues. Hopefully this process will progressively get easier.

This was our midterm assignment for 3D Animation... At least I think it's a midterm.
Open for comments and critique :)

Graph editor! I move stuff around and it hates me! :'( hehe

I'll get the hang of it.

Do you animate the movement before you animate the squashing?

I did and then the squash deformer didn't want to work. Added the locator and parented it and it made the ball disappear. Weird. I'll probably have to ask Van Dall about that.

Yours looks really good though. :)

Thanks :)
Yeah I do the movement first and then the squashing. I find that the timing is the hardest part.

I didn't even use the squash deformer. When you use it, you have to be sure to make the locater first, THEN parent the ball and the squash to the locater.

That damned order of operations! ;)
