Converting shape layer object to normal position

I'm trying to connect a certain shape part of a shape layer to the starting point property of the Beam effect. However, the shape layer object position keyframes are way off from where I want them to be when inputed into the the starting point variable.

Hi Jim, I'm presuming that your Beam length is set to 100%? In which case you probably need to use the Pan Behind tool to move the anchor point of the shape layer to where you want the shape to connect with the beam. Or that would be my guess?

If you can get things working as you want with a null, you can then move your shape, parent it to the null, and you should be good to go.
