In this video, we'll be talking about the planning process for animating the ball with the peg technique.
So just like when we animate the ball with the traditional paperless technique, it's also useful in animating with the peg technique to create some planning to guide our animation. So on this layer, I've sketched in the three key positions of the ball as well as the path of action. On the second layer, I've drawn the spacing charts which show that between key positions 1 and 9, the ball will be slowing out of key position 1 and therefore accelerating with gravity toward the contact position in frame 9. The second chart shows that between key positions 9 and 17, the ball will be slowing in to the high point position at frame 17. In other words, decelerating as it is moving up against gravity from the position at key frame 9.
