It may seem simple but the bouncing ball is actually the foundation for every animation. So when I decided to start learning animation seriously, the bouncing ball was the logical place to start. Completing the bouncing ball exercises really helped develop my understanding of some of the core principles of animation, such as squash and stretch, timing and spacing, ease in and ease out, and arcs.

How I did it:
Step 8: Finally, repeat all the frames backwards so that your animation starts and ends with the ball at the top position. This way you can loop your animation, and now we are done!
