Experimental Animation: Cannonball Bounce
This short piece of animation that was produced in Toonboom Studio 4.0 shows variations on the Animation Principles that are discussed later. In terms of 'Squash & Stretch', this piece uses very little if any of this principle because it is not a soft object, such as a ball. Adding the same degree of 'Squash & Stretch' that was included in the earlier pieces, "Boris the Ball" & the bouncing ball example, would take away the realism of this animation of a cannonball.
Also notice that the cannonball doesn't bounce anywhere near as high as the previous examples and fairly obviously has the strict rules of gravity applied to it.
