Hi all,

I'm trying to create a bar graph animation. Currently, I have the anchor points set at the bottom of the rectangle so that it scales from the bottom up. The problem is that the stroke around the rectangle loses its shape even if I scale from the rectangle path and not the transform. Is there any way to fix this?

Pictures attached:

Thanks

You're using a shape layer, right? You need to animate the shape path, and put the shape's anchor point at the bottom. Then it will grow properly from the bottom up.
