Lesson 6: Squash and Stretch
#AD4EVER Back to Basic tutorial series is coming to an end.
We hope that everyone has learnt a lot in the past 5 tutorials and that your animation knowledge has grown.
Besides just teaching you some classic animation techniques,
we hope that we have also inspired you to make your own animation.
This week, we are ending this series with another classic animation technique,
the Stretch and Squash technique. It is one of the Twelve Basic Principles of Animation introduced by Disney animators, as mentioned in tutorial 2.
This technique is crucial in bringing your animation to life!
The principle of Stretch and Squash focuses on the shape of the objects in the animation.
When objects are moving, if we stretch and squash its shape,
it would create a more defined and animated illusion of movement,
adding more dynamic and drama to the animation.
