    Write-on tool and Camera zoom

    johnk1535

      Hi, I have created a pre-comp of a tree constantly moving, and I have been trying to use the write-on function to try and reveal this tree slowly, while the camera is zooming out, I noticed when I zoom out the write-on tool does not adjust to fit the tree and just stays in one static place,

       

      Is there anyway that the write-on tool can just adjust with the tree?

       

      or will I just have to manually keyframe the brush size and position of the effect?

          Please clarify what exactly you are trying to do. Brush coordinates are relative to the layer, so if you applied ther effect on a 2D layer to act as a matte on your 3D pre-comp, naturally the whole thing will fall apart as the camera moves. You would then have to mask the items in your tree pre-comp, which could possibly mean each branch and twig may need its own Write-On effect to draw it on.
