I am animating a rectangle with a stroke and would like to it scale up and down along its length in only one direction while keeping the stroke fixed.
I have managed to either keep the stroke fixed but not scale it in one direction, or to scale it in one direction but not keep the stroke fixed. :(
I have learned that in order keep the stroke fixed I can create a shape layer and edit the "size" rather then the scale. The problem is that I can't get it to "scale" in one direction now. (I know while editing the scale I can move the anchor point to the side I would like to scale from but while editing the size moving the anchor point has no effect and I haven't been able to find a solution.
Any suggestions? :) Thanks!!
