    Opacity not going over 100%


      Hey guys,


      I'm working on a project that has a lot of pop out effects and I use Graph Editor to make it go over 100% opacity and return back to 100%. It's easy and good enough. The problem started today: I can't get the opacity over 100% now, no idea why... On the graph editor it goes up to a 100% and from there onwards it's just a straight line. It's super annoying, how to fix this?

          Think for a moment -- if something is TOTALLY opaque, i.e. 100% opaque -- how do you make more opaque? 


          That's like asking for complete silence to be quieter -- ain't gonna happen.  It can't happen. 

          Oh, I suppose it could if you happen to have a sound sucker.  Good luck finding one.

            Oh my God... I just realised I've mistaken opacity with scale...


            Even though English is not my first language, there's no real excuse for this...


            Anyway, thanks for helping me realise my mistake I need to get some sleep

              It works with scale if you apply 3 basic keyframes -- 0%, 120% or whatever, then 100%.  And because this is something that normally happens VERY quickly, you shouldn't even need the graph editor.  Just highlight the last 2 keyframes, right-click and make them Bezier keyframes.


              Oh, you can TRY to use the graph editor, but I think it would be a big waste of time.
