Join Ian Robinson for an in-depth discussion in this video Animating the sphere, part of Mograph Techniques: Retiming and Tracking Footage.
At this point in our project, we need to animate the appearance of these particles…around our soccer ball. If we scrub through the scene, notice…there's no animation just yet. We just have the particles moving with the…soccer ball. So I just want to focus on the first…couple frames. Let's move our current time indicator to…around frame 16 and press N to end our work area.…And I'll go ahead and change the magnification of our timeline as well just…so we can see things a little more clearly.…Now to start building this animation, I want to start on frame 2.…
This is where I'll change the overall size of our particles themselves.…Let's change the size on X, Y, and Z to around 20.…Now I have to say, as I'm making these adjustments, in order to create a kind of…flowing organic animation, a lot of times you'll need to just make adjustments to…your base form, and sort of fiddle around until you get something that you actually…like. I happened to have already gone through…this process, so I'm just sort of sharing the highlights and telling you the…
