    Shape Roatation Point

    kwdelre Level 1

      When I create a circle shape on my composition the roation point stays in the center of the comp. Is there a way to automatically move the roatation point to the center of the shape? I just can't be sure it's centered using the Pan Behind Tool. Thanks!

          Hi! You have to zero out the shape position in the Contents menù of the shape layer.Not the position of the layer!AE GRAB01.jpg

            No. That's what shape layer groups and the associated transforms are for - you rotatet the group, not the entire layer. At least that's how Adobe would like us to work, but in reality the behavior is a pain in the butt. Therefore the only way to get your rotation where you want it and use the layer#s normal transforms is to center everything numerically as suggested by the previous poster....
