Is there a way to put 400 child layers back to the 'comp' center without having to unparent them first?
I have 400 'dots' in a grid, if i create the grid before i parent i have to manually parent each child layer to each dot afterwards, this maintains the child position but takes a long time to parent each layer.
If i create a parent and child, and then duplicate them both they automatically create a new parenting (each child parents the layer above it) this is quite quick to copy paste, however all the dots are in the same place and need to be turned into a grid. (not to hard using the align function.)
however once i have done that i find all my child layers are (naturally) in different positions, and because the co-ordinates are now 'local' and relative to the parent i cannot just reset them all back to the middle.
I found the tutorials on tracking child data, however the effect i need is essentially the same as unparenting 'reseting position' and then reparenting.
with this many layers it takes a very long time, just hoping someone has some ideas.
