I was wondering would it be easy to recreate the bouncing balls from the Sony Bravia advert using the particle engine? For those who are not familiar with it here is a site set up for the advert http://www.bravia-advert.com/ . I was going to make a Brickfilm which will be similar to the advert but with a secret twist. that's not important now though. Would it be two hard to have quite a large number of multi-coloured balls bouncing down a hill (bouncing not just going in a strait line)?

I will experiment but I'm not the most experienced user of Effects lab so help would be appreciated.

This could be done, but you would have to use a fully 3d particle engine to make the balls bounce correctly, sadly enough this isn't a feature the lab products have at the moment wink maybe a future product...maybe?

I could probably produce a similar effect where the balls just above ground are so cluttered that you can't see the ground. Or I could not show the ground at all when the balls are needed to bounce
