I'm trying to rotate a Symbol in motion tween. I have done this successfully.
Now I want the symbol to start from a small size and get larger as it rotates.
I used the free transform tool to scale it down on first frame and on last frame to the finished size I want.
The problem is the crosshair and circle in the centre of my Symbol keeps moving and it ruins the rotation becasue it's then off axis with the rest of the picture.
When I attempt to move the symbol everything then gets messed up and a blue line appears from cross hair and moves the entire symbol out of place.
Is there no way to not have the symbol move? I want it to just stay static as I scale and rotate it. Without moving a pixel off-axis.
Hi mate, double-click the Transformation point with the Free Transform tool to snap it back into position over the Registration point so that your tweens don't break.
Hi man thanks for swift response, when you say the Transformation point do you mean the small cross-hair in the middle of the tiny circle around the cross-hair?
Hi again Paul,
The Transformation Point is the little circle which you can move with the Free Transform tool.
The cross-hair indicates the Registration Point, which is unmovable.
Have a look here for better understanding of how they work and should be used:
As for the floating elements and points, it is a disgusting bug in newer versions of Animate, most likely due to poorly implemented mathematical rounding. See if you have display scaling applied at OS level. Try to set your screen to 100%. This may or may not improve the situation.
Hope this helps!
