Media moves when anchor point is moved

I am trying to adjust the anchor point for a group in Motion - when I move the point the media moves in the opposite direction. How do I move the anchor point and leave the media in the same location?

Use the anchor point tool in the Canvas instead of adjusting it in the Inspector. When you adjust it in the Canvas, the Position values change automatically to compensate.

I've tried that - same thing happens when I change the anchor point for the 3d group. If I change the anchor point for the individual layers it works fine, but I need the entire group to pivot around the new anchor point location.

Not sure what you're doing wrong, but if you follow Mark's suggestion and use the anchor point tool in the canvas, you should be able to move it without affecting the relative position of the group in the scene or the layers inside the group.

Here's a quick video demonstration of what Mark's saying.
