AE CS6 22.214.171.124 / Mac OS X 10.9.3 / I want to create a symmetrical shape layer (square). Holding shift and dragging gives me a rectangle. How do I fix this? Reset my settings?
I'm not sure if it is my settings. Other forums I've visited, have seen the same problem. After giving up, I found out that A.E. CC doesn't have this sort of problem. Manually adjusting (in properties) doesn't work after rotating the shape 90degrees. It still winds up looking like a rectangle. Same can be said about the ellipse shape. Holding down shift after dragging onto my composition leaves me with an oval not a symmetrical circle. Is it the anchor point?? Help!
There is nothing wrong. your comp has a 1.5 pixel aspect ratio, not square. You need to fix the comp settings.
