    Hello everyone!

    So this is a simple thing, but absolutely frustrating to the point of making me quit working on it.

    I’m trying to simply animate a box that will have text on it.
    The animation is a horizontal scaling effect, from 0 -> 100.
    I make a solid, click the stopwatch icons with the playhead on the frames I want as start/finish, unlink the horizontal and vertical values by clicking the little chain link icon.
    First frame, 0%, last frame, 100%.

    Done right?

    Wrong.

    When I play it, I notice it’s changing the VERTICAL size of it a little. Then as I go frame by frame to check, I see it’s going OVER 100% a little bit as it progresses and then back. I never touched the vertical attribute… Why is this happening?

    EDIT: I just realized it’s only happening after I do easing. Im using Motion 3 to do this. So mabe it’s the plugin. Still, anyone know a workaround?
