Scaling on the "anchor point" in Boris Red
by Galen Fott on Oct 8, 2008 at 7:40:34 pm
I'm coming to Boris Red from an After Effects background. I want to scale a wedge of a pie chart around a point in space that I set. The "pivot" works this way for rotating, but not scaling. In After Effects the transformation point is the point around which both rotating and scaling operate, but this isn't so in Red. So how do I do it?

The animation system in AE and in RED are a little different, especially in regard to the pivot points. To offset the pivot for the scale you should probably nest the chart track into a #D Container track. This is like using a null controller in AE. Then in the 3D Container you go to the Pivot tab, enable the scale around pivot function, unlock the position from the pivot by clicking on the lock icon next to the position and pivot parameters, offset the position and pivot from each other, and then return to the position tab and set the scale that you need.
