Shape's distort when I try and rotate them
on May 22, 2020 at 2:52:42 pm

So every time I try and rotate a shape- be it a line or a square or whatever, it shears- distorts. Like if it's a rectangle it'll distort into a parallelogram.

I'm working in a 2:1 pixel aspect ration, and I've been sure to interpret all the footage going into my comp so it's all at 2:1, but the problem still happens.

I've also tried locking and unlocking the scale proportions whilst rotating- but it still happens.

I'm working at size 4096 x 2160 with 2:1 pixels.

Would love any advice- it's driving me mad!

Could you post a project file? Off the top of my head I can’t think of a reason, but might be able to spot something
