Animating just one side of a square
on Oct 18, 2016 at 4:48:15 pm

I have a shape path with a square on it that has no fill and a stroke. What I want to happen is I want to animate one side of the square so that it compresses, but I don't want the top side of the square to move, so essentially I just want the bottom side of the square to move up and the two vertical sides of the square to adjust to the new height. I'm having the hardest time trying to figure out how to do this.

Every time I try to change the Size of the Rectangle, it adjusts from the middle. Moving the layer anchor point up does't help this and the Rectangle itself does not have an Anchor Point property - just size, position and roundness. Am I missing something?
