Ok, so I'm working on this music video where they want to do this bouncy basketball karaoke effect on text. I'm thinking element could be perfect for this project, using the 3d basketball model. I'm trying to figure out the best method for squashing and stretching this basketball. Essentially, what I want to do is animate x and y scale but I can seem to see any scale transform tools for the model. Instead I'm having to animate the anchor point on the solid layer to track the basketball, and then scaling the solid but this method just won't do. Can anyone tell me the best method for what I wish to accomplish?

the more I explore this software, I'm thinking its very possible that theres just no way to scale them individually on x,y,and z...can anyone give me some feedback here?
