Squash & Stretch

at this point we can go ahead and create the squash and stretch animation for the text. And first of all I have a little example of the squash and stretch just with a square. So you can see the principles and how it actually works. So if a play back this animation you can see that the square starts by being stretched up and then it squashes down and goes back into its final position. Now the way this question stretch works is that it has to retain the same volume throughout the entire thing. So you can see that the volume of the square here is approximately the same as when it's stretched out. So when you stretch something out you also have to squash it in to retain that volume. Now if you look at the key frames for this animation we are decaying the timing. So that means the interval between them. So it starts at seven frames six five four and 3 frames. So that's the same thing that's happening to the scale of the actual square. So if we click on the scale and go into the graph editor...
