Wiggle Effect not taking Anchor Point into account
on Jun 14, 2019 at 6:01:10 pm

Hello! I'm having a minor issue with the "Wiggle" series of Animation Presets.
When attempting to add it to either a text or shape layer, it changes the Anchor point from the center of the object towards the top left of the object.
When attempting to move the anchor point manually by this point, the text in my layer settings concerning the anchor point is red, and won't allow me to use it.



I want to assume that doing some variety of an Alt-Click command will allow me to do this. But I'd like to figure out if there's an automated way first thing.

i could see it messing up on the shape layers because they act differenly. But if you pre compose it by moving all attributes, and then set the anchor point then add the wiggle, it will work, or you could create a null and make that wiggle and attach everything else to it...but then they would not wiggle indivually

Yeah, shape layers can be a bit weird since you can move the center of the shape and the anchor point of the shape group separately from the anchor point of the layer. At a certain point, it'd be easier to use a wiggle expression on the property yourself instead of trying to use animation presets.
