Aspect Ratio change with out effecting composition
on Oct 21, 2011 at 5:34:38 pm

I was trying for a 1280x720 composition, but must have been going too quickly, because somehow it ended up being scaled way up beyond that.

Anyway, most of the layers had the 3D switch toggled on, complete with a camera that flies by a few images that are in different spots on the Z axis. Is there any way that I can change the composition size back down with out completely disturbing every objects place?

As of now, the only solution I've found has been to export it to a quicktime as is, bringing the QT back in and scaling it down to the correct size and then exporting again... but there must be a better way, right?

How about nesting your large comp in a smaller comp and scaling it down?

THe Scripts folder contains a Scale Composition.jsx script. This will be an ideal solution should you want to continue working on the layers. Take note that it scales the camera transforms (including zoom property) and adjusts the scale property of image layers.
