# How to make an animal object bounce across the page Edit Subject

hi, I would like to have a deer jump (bounce) across the page. So far I have two animated objects (deer with straight legs, and deer with bended legs). Could you provide step by instructions on the specific behaviors that I can get it bouncing across the page? I've tried many different ways, but it seems to be the wrong method. many thanks!! :)

I would think you want one animation object with the straight leg and the bent leg, then make a behaviour for when you want it to bounce across the page like so

IF
THEN
Play Instantly
Transform X to 1024 ( if landscape ) Over T Ease Sine Out ( or In can't remember which is better for this off the top of my head )
Transform Y to 768 ( if landscape ) Over T Ease Out Bounce
Make sure the animation object start at a Y that is the highest point on the bounce, not right a the bottom of the screen, and where T is the amount of time in seconds you want the deer to take to jump

How does this make you feel?

• done this with minor adjustments.. I notice that the deer gradually stops bouncing across the screen, like as in a ball... how do I make it continue to bounce at the same height across the screen and at the same pace without bouncing less and less and then stopping? thanks Dan!

Ok, so we need to make two functions, one that handles the Y and one that handles the X

IF [whatever] (forgot that the less than and greater than get removed in previous post - sorry )
THEN
[animation object] Play Instantly
Transform X to 1024 Over T Ease Linear

Then make another behaviour, must be a new one
IF [same whatever as before] ) over BT/2 Ease Sine In
WAIT BT/2
and set looping on

So T is the total time to move across the screen
BT is the time you want per bounce
BT/2 is half of that
How does this make you feel?
