Well you have a from and to option that is exactly what it means, it starts at the value of from and ends at to. You can set the time it takes from â€śfromâ€ť to â€śtoâ€ť

Ease is a block in logic and math

Youâ€™ll need the size behavior to change the X and Y length of an object, which can squeeze and stretch the sprite.

You can use Ease behaviors ranging from 100 (for the size behavior, it means 100% of its original size) to whatever size you want the X or Y value to be.

You can make an objects size value go over 100 which makes it bigger, or under 100 which makes it smaller until it reaches 0 then it just disappears.

I think the max size is 400% or something around there. But Iâ€™m not for sure. I think it just disappears when it reaches over the max value possible like if it reached 0.

For example of the ease behavior, if you want the objects X size to shrink. You could use a linear ease behavior for a constant decrease with the starting value being 100 and letâ€™s make the TO value to 20. So the X length of the object will shrink from 100% of its original size down to 20% while the Y value stays the same unless it is changed with a number or ease input as well.
You can reverse the numbers to have it grow from its original squeezed size back to its original.

For a slime, you would mostly want its Y to decrease and the X to increase when itâ€™s squished to make it seem that gravity has an effect on its gelatinous body.

To achieve squishy slimes, use the ease tool. Set â€śfromâ€ť and â€śtoâ€ť values; it animates from â€śfromâ€ť to â€śto.â€ť You can adjust time duration
