Hello all, I have an issue.

I have a series of motion paths in photoshop that when copied into my comp are a lot smaller that the comp size. I am copying the path details to a null that particular is using to create light beam movement.

the thing is that I have created quite a few already and the new set that I have (the small ones) were done by someone else.

I have increased the scale of the masks, which are all in one shape layer but when I copy the mask path to the null it reverts to the original size.

the object is a man, and is broken down to left, right, head, left leg, light leg so when scaled they all have to fit together.

There has to be a way of increasing the overall paths scale to then copy the individual parts without having to then manually scale them up

help help help.

thanks, that would do it but would be a long process because i have a lot of instances.

turns out i can do it in Photoshop, I increased the canvas size to match the comp but it caused the same result that I had when I asked the question. However if I then went to the image size and increased that 300% everything did what it was suppose to.


thank you anyway.

Regards

Colin
