Rotating shape when zooming entire group?
on May 29, 2016 at 9:27:57 am

Hi,
I finished my little project with an animated map. A shape is at the top of a motion path. Every thing is fine.
But then I had the idea of zooming in. So I put the entire project into an additional group and set the position x and y coordinate to change over time as well as the zoom (skale) from 100 to 200% (in tab properties/transform). As soon as 100% changes to e.g. 101% the shape within the group starts rotating around itself. No other item turns. As far as I understood the principles and tutorials this should not happen. Is this a bug in Motion 5.2.3? How can I avoid this behaviour of this single item?

Not sure about your bug but why don't you use the 3D Camera to zoom in? Zooming on an entire project is really a camera move, not a scaling operation.

Hi John,
thanks for the hint.

I didn't use any 3D functionality till now. I know some basics and it's working fine, so I simply try to adapt my knowledge to the next step in changing the position and size like I did it before with all other items and even groups. I will examine the 3D camera functionality.
