Moving the Pivot Point of a Drawing Layer


The pivot point of a layer determines the location of the point around which a layer is rotated, scaled or skewed with the Layer Transform tool.

By default, the pivot point of a layer is at the centre of the stage. You can reposition that pivot point to adjust where your layer rotates, scales or skews from when animated.

IMPORTANT Changing the pivot point of a layer affects the position of its pivot point throughout the entire panel. If your layer is already animated and you change the position of its pivot point, its position at the current frame will remain the same, but Storyboard Pro will have to adjust the position of the layer in other keyframes to work with the new position of the layer's pivot, which might produce unexpected results in your animation. It is recommended to set the pivot point of your layer before animating it.
