1. Make a colored square 20x20 px.
2. Convert it to movieclip (with registration center)
3. Edit the movieclip and move/align the square to left/top (so that registration/transformation point is 0:0)
4. Exit the movieclip
5. Resize/transform the movieclip (simply drag one of the corners)
6. Note that the registration point is no longer at 0:0 - the more you resize the movieclip, the more the transformation point gets offset.
1. the transform point != the registration point.
2. when i follow your steps the transform point and reg point remain at 0,0 when i return to the main timeline at step 4.
regardless, to change the transform point:
select the object
click the transform tool
and move the transform point (open circle) to the desired location:
Ok, then try this
1. Make a square movieclip 20x20px
2. Move the transform point to the top left 0:0
3. Now use your mouse and drag-resize that movieclip to something around 1000px wide
3. Now you should see that the registration point has moved.
Side effect: Because of this, the x/y positions gets affected on the consecutive drag-resizes, which is really annoying of you're working in whole pixels
I meant: "transformpoint has moved."
reg point responds as expected with resize (ie, starts in center and ends in center).
transform point responds as expected with resize (ie, starts at top left and ends at top left)
