Exercises are a great way to test what you've learned given certain restraints, while getting feedback from your peers. Plus, they're a lot of fun!

    Feeling pretty floaty for exactly why Wayne said. What I can add is try using the grease pencil/motion trails to help track your spacing, will help you catch things that are out of whack. Keep it up Juanig!

    There’s a few issues in this one Juanig - but nothing you can’t handle :)

    Vertical bounce:
    -firstly look at the spacing as it loops. It pops back up to the top because it is missing a few frames.
    -When the ball starts to stretch it feels like it is slowing down. That is because S&S affects the spacing. A stretched ball will need to travel further to feel like it is still accelerating. You can see there isn’t much of a spacing difference between the last 3 frames which creates the slowing down feeling.
    -You can also try to reduce the amount of stretch which will help too.

    Arcing bounce:
    After you look into the other bounce you will probably see some of the same issues in this one too. But here are some of the other notes I have for this.
    -Keep the stretch in line with the path of action. (especially the stretched contact frame)
    -Look at making sure the arcs are nice and parabolic and not too V shaped.
    -Control that S&S and be consistent.

    Keep going Juanig - there’s still a bit of a ways to go on this one but you can do it! :)
