I am very new in After Effects. I am using After Effects 2020.
In Adobe Illustrator we can align objects very nicely; we can distribute them in whatever manner we want.
So In my current Project, I had to draw several shapes under one shape layer (they are under contents). So I need to align them horizontally, and then want to align it (together, maybe after making them a group) centrally with another shape. But when I check the Align property, it only has ‘Composition’ as option. Nothing else!
How can I do it like I do in illustrator? Is there any way?
You can align layers between them (when you have a selection of layers ) or align using the composition space. Shapes inside the same Shape layers can not be aligned between them.
Thank you. Can you please tell me what to do if I want to align contents of same shape layer? Or It's not possible in Ae?
Select the shape layer, and press the U key twice. This will reveal the modified properties of every shape in the layer. Look for the shape/Transform properties. That's where you line up the values. If you want them all to line up on X and Y, use the Pickwhip to the appropriate transform property. It will take me less time to record a video of the process than it will for me to write it out, so here you go:
Thank you so much.
