I've got a problem with scale my moving text, I have an intro moving but when I want to rescale it as when I preview what I have done it re-sets it self back or original size. Is there a way to save the size I want it to be.

First image: This is shown when I edit it

Second Image: This the size goes back to its original size after I preview it playing to see what will happen.

  • $\begingroup$ Maybe it is better the upload the blendfile, I don't understand what it is that you are asking. Do you want the text to scale in the animation? Or do you want to have the text to have the same size? $\endgroup$ – gladys Aug 11 '15 at 17:27
  • $\begingroup$ I want to resize the text, but everytime I seem to scale it. It resets itself back to its original size $\endgroup$ – Mike Aug 11 '15 at 17:30
  • $\begingroup$ So you want to keep it resized during all animation, right? Without more details, I think there is a keyframe before or after the one that sets X scale to 0.500. So you need to either remove all keyframes, or change whatever keyframes are set before or after the one that scales to 0.500. A capture from the Timeline/Dopesheet would help. $\endgroup$ – Zafio Aug 11 '15 at 17:33
  • $\begingroup$ Yes I want to resize the text through the whole animation $\endgroup$ – Mike Aug 11 '15 at 17:35
  • $\begingroup$ the first image is the scale that you want? $\endgroup$ – gladys Aug 11 '15 at 17:35

First you must go to the dopesheet, then select the text you want to animate. In the dopesheet you see four keyframes, those keyframes you have to change. So go with the timeline (the green line in the dopesheet) to the first keyframe, the values of the scale is in yellow (that means it is keyframed) so change the x value to .5 and click on I to insert a keyframe (make sure you are in the 3D view, or above the value when you hit the I. Go with the timeline to the next keyframe, you are on the right frame if the values from the scale are yellow and repeat everything.enter image description here
