Animating Text in Maya
on Nov 14, 2011 at 9:34:42 am

Hi there.
My names Kyle and im a 2nd year VFX student in Cape Town SA. Im creating a title scene that involves two text words that are alive and fight each other. As i am new to Maya im having trouble adding a squash and stretch effect to the words as im not clear on how to add a skeleton or a rig to the text, which I have separated into single letters and grouped together afterwards. If anyone has any tips or knows of any tutorials that might help me bring my words to life i would greatly appreciate the help. :)

Hi, Kyle.

If you just need squash and stretch you should look into Maya's 'nonlinear deformers'. There's a deformer called 'squash' that might do the trick.

Good luck,
