Share Posted April 21, 2020 Hello amazing folks! So I took my melting piece and started building an ice-cream. It's going okay but I am sure there's a lot of things that I can do better. I am really hopeful to hear some advice from the pros here. Btw @PointC I started using the background rectangle advice that you gave me and that alone has been a game changer! Thank you so much. Anyways here's what I have right now: There's a few things I dislike about it: 1. I had to break down the melting piece into 2 pieces. That's because I wanted the middle part of it to start melting first to reflect on the bottom of the pink ice cream ball touching the cone first. Is there a way to do this without breaking the melting part into 2 pieces? Please take a look at the screenshot above to see better. I have a "middle" ending part and "endings" melting part. 2. Another thing I would like to improve is the starting piece. I had to make the starting points(which I call the "unmelted" pieces) pink rectangles. Originally I had it as a path with no stroke and no fill. However once that piece was to expand to become "melted" there was a small gap above it(less than a pixel) between the melted piece the cone and the pin ice cream ball. So the cone was showing between the melted piece and the ice cream ball. That gap was not visible in illustrator and I didn't know how to fix that differently. I expanded the starting piece into a rectangle to overlap the cone. However that seems wrong to me as I have to first hide it and then display at after the pink ball is close enough so it can hide it. Sorry I forgot to take a screenshot of what that gap looks like. 3. At a specific point of the animation the ice cream ball is overlapping the cone. What would be a better way to change the shape of the ball to avoid this defect? To summarize I feel like I have way too many moving pieces and I would like to optimize my development process. If you have any additional feedback please let me know. I am having so much fun with this and would LOVE to learn as much as I possibly could.
