I'm scaling my images down in After Effects. I have a few layers highlighted and have moved my pointer forward in my timeline to grab the animation. But when I shrink the images down they are no longer correctly spaced proportionally. Anyone have any ideas to solve this?

If I understand correctly you could link all layers you want to size down to a Null and scale down the Null- this will keep proportions.

Are you scaling multiple layers? When you do that they scale down on there own anchor point. One method to scale proportionally is to create a null layer, parent everything to the null and scale the null.
