Squash & Stretch is a FREE tool that enables you to save time with a collection of ready to use behaviors, carefully handcrafted by professionals and controlled by an intelligent system – ensuring that your animations come to life without starting each time from scratch.

Go to Pro Version

Squash & Stretch is also available in a Pro version with many more behaviors, sounds and some extra features.

Features

Handcrafted Animations - all Squash & Stretch animations are carefully handcrafted by professionals, because there is no way to automate emotion and creativity.

Intelligent Adjustments - Squash & Stretch adjusts the behaviors to each individual layer, to ensure they always look good. You already have other animations applied to a layer? Squash & Stretch can even adjust those to make sure both start and end of a behavior fit into the context seamlessly.

Big Library - Squash & Stretch contains a large collection of behaviors that you can browse conveniently with the build-in gallery. The Pro version can even be extended with additional bundles that can be purchased separately.

Sound - Squash & Stretch behaviors not only move and deform a layer but also come with a variety of built-in sound designs for maximum impact. Just select a sound design and it will be inserted into your composition when you apply the behavior. Of course, you can also use the sounds independently of Squash & Stretch as any normal stock sound effects collection.

Intuitive Parameters "Can you make it jump higher?"
"Well, let me try to increase the initial force, lower the gravity and then tweak the friction a bit to compensate the increased velocity".
If this sounds like a nightmare, then Squash & Stretch is for you. Powerful and simple, with parameters that adjust the behaviors the way you want.

Control the speed and energy with the Oomph parameter Control the amount of deformation with the Squash & Stretch parameter

No Expressions Squash & Stretch creates simple keyframes that are also easy to modify. Personalizing animations could not be more simple.

It is really giving me a nice organic animation style that I am looking for most of the time. Jay Roader, Motion Design at Gameloft Montreal
animation created by Christopher Günther with Squash & Stretch
We have to work really fast - animations have to be done in one day, so without something like Squash & Stretch peppered into an animation you couldn’t do this kind of work in the amount of time that is available. This makes it extremely valuable for me. Christopher Günther, Social Media Designer at ZDF Digital
