Combining Soft Body and Motext

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

I've been tasked with matching an animation someone else has done, I can't post the original though as it's NDA. The animation is text popping up individually by letter but as each letter animates up they squash against each other.

 

The animation is definitely done using motext and effectors but I can't for the life of me work out how to combine that with soft body to get the squashing effect.

 

Below is a scene that I've made with the correct motext and effectors for the scaling of the letters but if anyone can point me in the right direction to get the letters squashing against each other that'd be amazing!

Thankyou for any help and if you need any more info please just say!

I have tried with a fracture but it seems to stop the soft body tag working. I'm currently using a mesh deformer referencing a cube with soft body which works when keyframed, as soon as I drop it into a fracture and use effectors the soft body doesn't work on the text, it does still work on the cube though.
