Hey Cow's

I have been searching for a solution but I cannot seem to find it, or I'm using the wrong searchwords.

Lets say you have a null setup in the left corner and 20 layers are parented to that null.
Now I want to rotate/scale all the layers with the null in the right button side.

What I do now is unparent the 20layers, move the null and parent them back.
It is 'ok' when I only have 20 layers in the comp, but not when I have 500 and I need to select only 20 :)

Is there a solution? Some kind of dynamic parenting trick?

Create a Null and place it where you want the center of the scale to be. Then parent the original Null to this new Null. Then scale this new Null.
