Positioning Layers Closer or Relative to each other
on Feb 23, 2019 at 4:10:39 am

Okay, so I've been looking for a solution to this for a while now, but maybe I just don't know what to look up to find it. So you know how you can alt-drag keyframes to move them further or closer to each other or from the first one? I want to do this with the position of layers in the timeline. If there is like 5 square layers stacked on top of each other in the left side of the comp, is there a way i can drag them out to the right side with a consistent space in between? Another example for this is when you have multiple layers distanced from each other correctly, but when you scale them the gaps increase. Is there a way to drag them all closer together after the fact? Thanks in advance.

Nope. Get out your notepad and a pencil and do some arithmetic.

Hi. There is Align Layers and Distribute Layers (under Window>Align), though I have no experience using it. The other thought is you may be able to use the Grid Effect to assist?
