I have something in an image which is at a 45% angle to everything else. I have duplicated it, masked it, and now want to animate it getting taller, but because it was originally part of the whole image, it scales straight up, distorting it.
How can I rotate the bounding box/anchor point, so that when i scale it's Y value, it will scale upwards at a 45% angle and not distort??
The scale is based on the position of the anchor point. go up to the view tools and hold down the mouse on the "Select" tool. In the drop down menu select the second tool down which looks like a circle. It will allow you to move the anchor point to the opposite corner of where you want the object to scale up.
