I'm doing a simple animation using the Scale Height and Width options in the "transform" effect. I did it for one object, and when I scaled the height, AE used the bottom of the object as a base, thus making it smaller from the top down. Now I need to change the object in the middle of the animation, so I put the new object in the composition and copied the effect into it. But now, the effect uses the top of the object as a base, making it smaller from the bottom up instead.
I can't seem to figure out how to change this. I need the animation of the two objects to match perfectly.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

the anchor point is the pivot from which the transformation occur. if you want to change the transform effect's anchor point, you need to change the anchor point. notice that as you do, the layer will shift in the opposite direction, so to make up for it copy the anchor point's parameters to the position parameters so they will be the same.
Thank you! That worked. No idea, why the original object scaled differently, since the anchor point is the same as the rest. But no matter, problem solved. Thanks!
