Manual Inertia bounce
on Jun 23, 2015 at 4:57:21 pm

Hey guys,

I've used the inertia bounce expression in ae for years now and when i came to do it manually, i just couldnt get the same effect.

I understand the logic, this is how I would do it:

(position A +10 frames to position B, 5 frames later move object +10 pixels past position B, 4 frames later move object -8 pixels past position B, 3 frames later move object +6 pixels past position B etc until it becomes it's resting position)

Does anyone know the best way to achieve the inertia bounce manually similar to the expression's results? I can't seem to but maybe im doing something wrong within the speed/value graphs?

Some pro tips would deffinately be appreciated!

Thanks :)

Dan.

I'm curious. If the expression works why would you want to do it manually? If it isn't looking right I think the best place to play with it is in the Graph Editor working on how it eases so it slows down better when it reaches peak hight and then speeds up faster as it reaches the floor.

Hi Steven,

I wanted to figure out how to do it manually because I think it's good to know, feel like I'm cheating sometimes constantly using expressions!

Cool, it sounds like you have the timing right so now play in the Graph Editor and see if that smooths things out. Best of luck.
