Opacity of null object parent group

Jul 31, 2012 8:41 AM

I have 5 text layers, that I have parented under a null object for the purposes of animating these as a group.  This works for animating position and scale, but for some reason Opacity of the null object does not effect the opacity of the individual elements.  Am I possibly missing something?

 

Let me preface this by saying I am brand new to after effects and motion graphics.

    It works as it should. Only transforms respond to parenting. If you must animate opacity in unison, pre-compose the layers or use pickwhip expressions to link properties.
