Being an animation major, its important to know how to use programs that produce moving images. I am currently learning about Toon Boom's Harmony at the moment, but have not even touched it before my Animation I class.
We had a basic assignment - make a bouncing ball.
Sounds simple right? Yes, simple, however it still requires some work. You need to know where your ball will go, how the ball should be drawing when descending, ascending, and hitting the ground.
