    copy path to layer offset problems

    jmcadam2

      I'm experimenting with whiteboard animation in After Effects. 

      I keep running into offset issues when copying a path to a different layer's position or anchor point properties. 

      Doesn't always happen but it happens enough to be frustrating.

       

      Here is a 1:45 video walking you through the problem.

       

      The path I'm using was not imported from illustrator, but created in After effects. Any help would be appreciated.

      Feel free to send me a link if you know of any good resources that could help.

       

      Thanks so much

          If the layer you are drawing pad on has been scheduled for rotated or repositioned the path will not lineup.

           

          The way I work is create a new white solid set the Blendwell to multiply and then draw my pathon that solid, Press alt/option plus I m to set a path keyframe and then copy it them set a position keyframe on the target layet and paste. It works every time.
