    Here’s a screencast I recorded for the Motionographer series “Step by step”.
    I thought it would be nice to share this “behind the scene” video with all of you guys.

    Why when I insert the Illustrator file into the After Effects effect all the layers appear to me centered to the middle.
    The painting loses its shape and enters the entire center.
    How can I fix it?

      I'm Turkish, but I'm trying to make it clear that only 1 hour for such a short animation is nice animation but 1 hour more time

      @OVO Unreleased I just mean that I don't know a thing about video editing softwares, and I edit videos on Photoshop because it's easier to me.
