sorry if this is an obvious problem: I have a bunch of text layers, I want AE to auto center my anchor point on the layers.

CS3 on a Mac


thanks!

You need to activate the "pan behind tool". You can do this by pressing "y" on your Keyboard and then manually move the anchor point to the centre of your layer.Remember all animations applied to the layer will animate from the anchor point such as scaling,tracking etc.

For a full list of Keyboard shortcuts see keyboard shortcuts under the help menu within AE or just click on the following link

To my knowledge there isn't an easy way to center the anchor point vertically on the text. The way to do it horizontally is to go to the Paragraph panel and choose to center align the text.

and if you want to center the anchor point vertically with the text, you'll need to adjust the 'baseline' in the character palette.

Is there a way, a script, plugin, whatever, to align automatically to the center of the object?

And for Auto center the anchor point on a Layer, is Ctrl-double-click (Windows) or Cmd-double-click (Mac OS) the Pan Behind tool button.

To reset the anchor point to its default location in the layer, Alt-double-click (Windows) or Option-double-click (Mac OS) the Pan Behind tool button.
