Would like to animate scale - possible?
on May 12, 2019 at 10:00:45 am

Hi all,

I'd like to be able to animate scale, but am unsure whether this is possible. I've been googling but I'm not exactly finding what I'm looking for..
I have a pair of eyes on a character, and I'd like to make him blink. The easiest way for me to do this would be to literally scale down the eyes for a few frames, and then scale them back up (opening and closing effect).
Am not sure whether this is possible, any tips appreciated!




If you have any other suggestions of how I might go about 'animating' the eyes a little bit to add expression, those are welcome too. Thanks!

To simulate a blink, simply animate the Y scale parameter of the spheres making up the eyes. Create keyframes a few frames apart for Y=1, Y=.2, and Y=1, for example.
