I think I have learnt many things this term. The first exercise bouncing ball has helped me develop my animation skills. I have used Maya before but never got around to animating. By doing the bouncing ball animation I have understood the principles of animation like squash, stretch, arc's, timing, spacing, ease in and ease out. Now I know how to use deformer tool to get objects to squash and stretch. I have also learnt how to use the graph editor properly and know how important the graph editor is.
Time management is very important in this process because if you miss the deadlines you will fall behind or fail the course. In the industry if someone misses the deadline all the other steps will be delayed. Companies like Disney will hire someone else, who will do the work on time and this, will save money because the employ is being paid to do a certain job for a couple of hours. From the experiences I have learnt that missing a deadline is the last thing you want to do. This is why I have created my own timeline which will enable me to work efficiently.
