Well, I did like the first one. But the second one:

1. When the ton fell, it seemed like a blunt drop. I would say add rubble.

Unless that's one SUPER bouncy ball, I think in the second part of the first one, it bounced too much.

They were waaaay off. Nice try though.

It seems like they've been tweened. Never tween physics because they'll end up lookin fake like how yours sorta did. It's better and more accurate if you do it frame by frame. The bouncing one should fall fast and when it hits the ground bounce immediately back up, depending on the bounce and gradually get slow in the air, then fall back down. I'm not goo at explaining so I took the time to show you how it's done. Now this is the basics, it's not exactly perfect.


The first shows that if it bounces if stays on the ground for a quick second and slowly moves up in the air. Make it ease out nicely when it does that.

The second one shows that a heavy object gradually falls faster depending on the weight and when it hits the ground, it doesn't stay in that exact place. It moves just a tiny bit further down than when it hit the floor.

I hope this helped, and you'll understand.

The first one did bounce way to high.
