Tornador ComaPen Tool Problem
by on Nov 25, 2012 at 12:14:58 pm

Hello,
I've been using After Effects for a little moment,
and I've been using the pen tool normally, without any problems.
But for some reason, my pen strokes go round :
If I want to draw a square, the corners are "smoothed" and are round !
Can someone please help change it and put it back to default ?
(I am using After Effects CS6)
Thank you.

Sounds like you have "RotoBezier" selected. When you select your pen tool, RotoBezier will show up at the end of your tools pallet. Uncheck it and your pen tool should return back to normal.

Tornador

If you Alt/Option click on any vertex, the handles will become straight automatically. Just a useful tip to work with pen tool.
