Edit Anchor Point of multiple layers
on May 13, 2011 at 8:39:56 pm

Hello there guys,

Im starting out with after effets this week in fact, and I am making a comp of transitions of pictures of a building after I zoom all the way from the whole globe.
I want to rotate some pictures around from they bottom part, but the anchor point is in the center of them all right now. I tried to select them all, press Y and move the anchor point around but had no luck, just 1 at a time, and since there is a lot of pictures, I wonder if there is an easier way.

Thank you!

If -- and ONLY if -- all the layers are precisely the same size, you can do the following:
  • Select all the layers and open the Anchor point property
  • Scrub the vertical value until the anchor point is at the bottom of the layer.

The anchor point will move for all the selected layers. If the layers are all different sizes, you have to do them one at a time.
