Illustrator or Photoshop import - hybrid of comp retain layer size and comp?
on May 15, 2013 at 4:41:05 pm

I'm trying to import a multiple layer Illustrator project.
I'm wondering if there is a way to both keep the original image size of the comp (1920x1080) but also have my anchor point at the layer center (as you would with a retain layer size import).
I know I can do this manually, but I'm curious if anyone knows a technique to automate this. Seems like it should be possible.
Any feedback is appreciated,
Thanks,
Bart

You obviously imported the Illustrator document as a comp, yes? If your goal is to keep the anchor point at the center of the document, why not just use the comp that was created when you imported it?

Any unstated impediments to doing so?

You can use this script to place the anchor point where you'd like on all selected layers.
