How a Bowling Alley Works

  • Here is an animation I did that shows how a bowling alley works. This particular design is taken mostly from Brunswick's pinsetter. The ball return is taken from AMF's Gripper ball lift. Please note that I wasn't going for an exact representation of a particular type of bowling alley. This was just to demonstrate the basic understanding of how it all works. I created the geometry in 3ds max and the animation was done in Cinema 4D. I then used After Effects to compile everything and to add sound effects etc.

    I had no idea the old crusty guy who went in the back to fix your frozen lane was just restarting windows xp

    One time on Tom and Jerry, Jerry ended up sliding down the lane, knocking all the pins down, and getting formed into the shape of a pin and set down on the lane. Is that possible? Is it against the rules?
