Alex

Check your Anchor Point position for object that you want to revolve around the center object.
It should be at the Center of the Center Object. For this you can use Pan Behind Tool(Y) and move the anchor point to the center.

Also if you are using Ellipse tool to to make your object then their are to anchor points for that, one for the content menu and one for the Transform menu.

What are your Composition Settings (cmd/ctrl-k)? If your composition is using non-square pixels then things may appear to squish/stretch if you don't have PAR Preview enabled.

Another possibility if you have a complex parent/child hierarchy may be one of your objects (or nulls) is not uniformly scaled. Check the scale properties of your layers.

Sure, there's a file upload function on the COW. Click the button that looks like a floppy disk above the new message text. After uploading you'll get a link that you can paste into the message body.
