Squash & Stretch is a FREE tool that saves you time with a collection of ready to use behaviors, carefully handcrafted by professionals and controlled by an intelligent system – ensuring your animations come to life without starting from scratch each time. 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 you can't automate emotion and creativity.

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

Large Library - Squash & Stretch contains an extensive collection of behaviors that you can easily browse with the built-in gallery. The Pro version can also be extended with additional bundles that can be purchased separately.

Sound - Squash & Stretch behaviors not only move and deform a layer, they also come with a variety of built-in sound effects for maximum impact. Just select a sound effect and it will be inserted into your composition when you apply the behavior. Of course, you can also use the sounds independent of Squash & Stretch, just like 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 for the increased velocity".
If this sounds like a nightmare, then Squash & Stretch is for you. It's powerful yet simple, with parameters that adjust the behaviors to be just 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 easy to modify. Personalizing animations couldn't be easier.

Reviews

Beginning and intermediate AE users can harness this tool to instantly create dynamic animations on projects with a tight deadline. Experts can use it for rapid prototyping & brainstorming.
No Film School read review
This tool is actually a very robust option for creating dynamic animations extremely quickly.
The Angry Video Guy read review
Overall, Squash and Stretch is a very useful tool for adding that extra “oomph” to your animations quickly, while still retaining creative freedom and control. No more messing around with inorganic, inflexible expressions to achieve robotic easing and squashing.
CreativeDojo read review
mamoworld’s tagline is “Simplify your CGI” and with their new tool, they have done just that.
Lesterbanks.com read review
It’s fast and easy to modify animations, once you understand the toolset.

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
