Follow Through and Overlapping Action

For this task we created a ball with a line attached, which mimicked the movement of string, shown in Aaron Blaise’s video tutorial ‘Overlapping Action in Animation’ 

First, I created a motion path to plan the motion of the ball~



And then animating the sting ‘Straight Ahead’; i tried to make the movements flow like a piece of rope. ballavecstring-recovered

I find the movement works well in the beginning of the animation, however towards the end in the top path the string moves around more than i would like.

I found this more challenging than i though, since its just two lines the focus is on the quality of animation, so i couldn’t hide behind a ‘good drawing’, any mistakes show.
