Crop moves as animation plays
on Jan 25, 2011 at 1:58:05 pm

Hi,

I was playing around with the "Defocused Wealth" and "Bokeh" backgrounds in Motion and was trying to crop them to make a quick and easy animated lower third. Only when I did so and then played it back the crop moved about wildly as it played the animation. I tried cropping the object itself and also the group in which it was contained.

So I have three questions about this:

1)Why is it doing this?

2) Is there a way to crop it and not have the edges move?

3) Why doesn't the background on these, or other animations like these, move about when it's not cropped?

Thanks!

Set the group you are cropping to Fixed Resolution in the Group tab of the Inspector. By default, groups change size based on the location of the layers they contain.
