Changing position of layers attached to null object messes up write on effect
on Aug 18, 2014 at 10:24:45 am

Hi - I did a simple animation where I am showing the direction of a light ray bouncing off a window. The rays are animated using the write-on effect.
I needed to scale all the layers down so I attached them to a null object and everything still worked fine.
I also need to move the position of the entire drawing to the right, but when I do, i lose my animated light rays. All the layers were pickwhipped to the null object, so I really don't know what is going on...

anyone?

Just precompose everything to scale them down and move them.
