Re: Align to center of another layer without moving that layer

Providing you haven't added any keyframes, you can use the pan behind tool (shortcut (y), I believe) to move the anchor point of the second layer to the first layers center.
Or, if keyframes have been used, you can create a null, place the null in the same position as the master layer, and parent the 2nd layer to it. From there, just use the null to animate the position, anchor and scale of the first layer.

Hope this helps
