Positioning the Scene Components

Setting up the scene also involves positioning the different scene elements within the camera frame.

Here are the main features and topics you need to know about to position your elements:

Animate Mode
Selecting a Layer
Positioning an Element Using the Transform Tool
Positioning an Element Using the Advanced Animation Tools
Flipping an Element
Positioning an Element Using the Layer Properties
Auto Apply Option
Resetting a Transformation

Animate Mode

When positioning elements, make sure the Animate Mode is turned off, or it will create a keyframe on your drawing layer. The animate mode is used to animate layers over time.
