Hi I have attached imgs and file that explain my problem. So as img 1 shows, I got a vector layer(collapse transformation is on) and I pre-composed it and then I add puppet tool animate the hand. As img 2 show, I move the L_hand comp into the main comp. at last, I got blurry when i try to scale it. But when I turn on the collapse transformation, as img 3 show, the graphic is not blurry but it ruins the animation. The animation is not working.







here is the file:

When you use collapse transformations, it changes the render order for affected comps and layers. Instead of rendering the inner layers of a precomp inside the precomp, then rendering the precomp itself as a layer with the main containing comp, collapse transformations basically pulls the precomp's layers into the main comp and then applies any transforms/effects done to the precomp layer itself directly and individually to all its contained layers.

As you've noted, this can have a really drastic and perhaps unexpected result.

Your simplest solution here is probably to scale up in the precomp to the maximum size you'll need and leave collapse transformations off.
