Squash & Stretch Test

Using the squash and stretch tutorial, I implanted a mini rig into this cone and applied the squash and stretch. This was an experiment to see what else can help me with the movement of the jello. This worked out quite nicely and will be used in parts of the animation for when the ball jumps onto or off of something.


  1. Mike,

    You could add the volume preservation tutorial to this to make it even more effective. It only takes a few minutes.

    1. Hi Alan,

      I do have the volume preservation applied to this test. I looked back and I believe it is not very noticeable due to the angle and it is very slight even in maya.It may also be due to it being quite fast or that there is very little geometry if these have any vers effect to the volume?

  2. For theatrical purposes you might want to up the effect. Instead of using a power of 0.5 you can increase or decrease the value for varying results.
