Greetings to all!
Quick question: how can I maintain layer effects and/or layer style sizing when enabling Collapse Transformations?
I've got a bunch of vector shapes and text in a composition that I'm importing into another comp and scaling. In order to maintain the definition of the shapes and text, I need to enable Collapse Transformations. This seems to work great, except my layer effects and styles are not scaled up as I would expect them to be- they remain at the size they're set at inside the sub composition, regardless of the external scaling. That means that something with a 10px drop shadow scaled up to 200% in another composition still has a 10px drop shadow instead of a 20px drop shadow.
How can I fix this? I need to be able to scale everything together, but I also need to be able to maintain the quality of the vector shapes and text. It seems awfully bizarre that things behave the way they seem to, so I must be missing something somewhere.
It works as it is designed and their is nothing weird or bizarre about it. It's inherent in how AE's render order works. You need to animate those properties with keyframes or link them with expressions.
