Service motions

Ok, so it seems like you've made the ball tosses to short on some of the serves, meaning that you've had to speed them up and making them look less fluid as they would in real life. The prime example being Roddick's serve. I don't know if this comes as a result of wanting to keep everything equal, but I don't know how much it would interfere with gameplay. You can correct me if I'm wrong, but if not it's something you could look into..

If you look here, the place where roddick hits the ball here is about the equivalent of the maximum height of his ball toss in TE.

Hello,

if you look carefully on normal speed, you'll see that the current animation speed is more or less correct ; but actually Roddick does a small pause once he's armed his serve, waiting for the ball to come down ; this pause is currently missing, I'll try to add it for next update.

If you wonder why the pause isn't already there, it's coz I mainly work frame by frame without a time-line, and after that, I look the whole animation to try to correct the whole timing but sometimes not carefully enough... :fear:
