Here's brief exercise I'd like everyone to try...
Open the project, choose the camera view and play the simple bouncing ball animation.Click to view attachment
Is it in synch with the beat of the music? In a way it is, because it's bouncing at the same tempo as the music, but it is really hitting on the beat?
Try sliding the sound file in the timeline until it does seem on the beat. (click it once, then drag; don't just move the starting point)
Keeps sliding it until it's off again.
Is there one spot that seems best? Is there a range?
Post your answers.
Ok here I go
When I scrub through the animation it is time perfectly with the words and the contact tact point or hit of the ball and floor. Once I hit the play button it's not timed right?
I think I have an idea why the video is before the audio once a play it and this is because the difference between the speed of sound and the speed of light. What stop right there mark that's not right at all
Ok I realized the opposite thing is happening the sound is before the video and I had to rethink his through and I am getting dizzy watching this
Ok 2nd attempt the reason the sound is early is that my mind is seeing the squash as main hit it reads more in my mind then the contact point so it looks better to me if I drag the sound file back 2 frames maybe 3 but 2 I think is better once you get to 4 5 6 the beat is timed more to he stretched point of the bouncing ball.
Now I have a problem and I don't know this just might be me and how I feel about this but once the song gets to the rest the bounce is ? anoying to me I know it's probably still in time but it does not read right in my mind I had the same thoughts when I was playing with tinmans sqash and stretch I made the stretch longer during the transaction of the 2 poses the foot still bobs in time but the strech is done over two beets and I personally like this better than a sqash stretch during the rest which does not look right. When I act out this ( I hope noboby was watching
) I found myself not bouncing on the rest just changing positions. Then I start bouncing in 2nd pose and hopefully still in time
So I hope I am not to far off and I hope alot of viewers try this exercise out it's informative
One other thing I thougt of is ever see the disney sing along videos were they have the words to eh song and a bouncing ball hitting words when you are supposed the sing the words, They do not hit on notes but words when I rest in the song comes the ball slowly arcs over the rest. Maybe this is stuck in my mind and is that I am trying to create?
