    Ellipse tool not making perfect circle


      No matter what I do, my ellipse tool will not make a perfect circle. Btw, I am using a PC and CC 2015. Shift and control won't work, shift won't work, double clicking ellipse when I have a square wont work. All it does is makes a big ellipse when I try anything. Please help! Thank you so much!

          Your composition was created with non-square pixels and you do not have pixel aspect ratio correction for preview turned on in the composition panel.


          You should always use the square pixel composition presets when creating a new comp. HDTV 1080 is the most common. Only choose non-square frame sizes if you know exactly what you are doing. Same goes for the pixel aspect ratio options. Basically if you see Custom or anything other than Square in the pixel aspect ratio options then you must know what you are doing.
