Newbee--scaling question

I have a logo that's made up of 4 sets. The sets fly on with key frames in the z position, then I want the whole logo to scale down to about 35%. How?

All I can find is position and rotation under the set properties.

Thanks.

Hi Dan,

You can't scale an object in Invigorator or PA beside the depth.

Consider altering the Invigorator layer anchor point to the center of your object and using the layer scale property.

Salut,
Serge

That's too bad. The problem with using the layer scale property is that the perspective is off when I do that. Any way to get around that?

What I'm trying to do is have the logo shrink and move up into the upper left corner of the comp. When I use the layer's scale and position, I can definately move it up there, but the perspective of the 3D doesn't change, which makes it look not so good.

I'm using the comp's camera in Invig. Should I not do that? Maybe I could fake it if I move the Invig camera back?

Thanks.

Absolutely! Depending on your anim this may work pretty well.

let us know if you still have problems.

So, it worked. I animated the camera in Invig. I moved it back and down, so the logo looked like it got smaller and went into the upper left corner in the comp.

Thanks.
