Hello everybody!

I was just looking around in the forum about new bones features in LW 9.5 and I'm really interested to know if anyone experimented doing squash and stretch with new features.

I'm really interested cos' I started modeling two characters for a short movie i'm working on and I really would like to know if it's possible doing some squash and stretch with LW 9.5

Just looking forward for any samples or info :D

with the new joints it should be possible to do squash and stretch bones, I have not done this my self but I'm quite sure it's possible.

The trick is to do it on the Z-position of the joint. Set limits so it won't shrink too small, and won't stretch too far (especially when using multiple bones).
