Hello,

I apologize in advance if this has already been answered somewhere ( i checked but found nothing)
but here is my problem:

I am importing static Flash layers into After Effects and when i animate the layer in after effects parts of the layers dance around a bit.

For example I have a little bit of text I wrote in flash and then i expand the text in after effects and the letters wobble around a bit.

Another example. I have a diagram made up of different layers in flash and when i do a zoom in after effects the parts move around a bit rather than staying as a solid image.

Any advice as to how to fix this would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Sam

Read up on the use of Hold keyframes. They freeze a layer's position until the next position keyframe is encountered.

Make sure the position value of the hold keyframe and the next keyframe are identical or you'll see a jump at that next keyframe.
