Always that I creat a shape, texts, everything, The Anchor Point are always in the center of my sequence. Never in center of the shape or something like that, just in the center of my sequence. I never know waht to do to fix this!
Hi Christiann Fonseca,
Thanks for reaching out. Sometimes that's annoying for me too.
For the Shape layers, you can go to After Effects Preferences > General and turn on Center Anchor Point in New Shape Layers. For text, masks, or any other layer try using the shortcut Ctrl + Alt + Home to center anchor point in layer content.
Let us know if it helps.
Thats works, but I found a other little problem to proceed in some step to use this in a morph shapes. The shortcut doen't fix this.
I follow all the steps in all tutorials that I found in the internet, but the results is always the same.
I create two shapes, convert to bezier path, copy the keyframe in the shape and paste in the other shape, but what happen is diferent in the end.
Could you help me with this too?
Thanks for sharing the screen recording. The circle and the rectangle (with rounded corners) are two completely different shapes and both the shapes have different numbers of the anchor points so I wouldn't expect anything better than this. If I were to achieve this, I'd animate the path manually.
Let us know if there are any other questions.
Please try this go to the top of the interface Edit/Preferences (Windows) or After Effects Preferences (Mac) General and check Center Anchor Point in new shape layer.
You may have to re-start After Effects but from now on the anchor point should default to the center of the shapes that you draw.
