    Hello Guys,

    Please, I need help. I am trying to make an animated bar chart data driven by CSV. I have made the bars with a rectangular shape layer. I want to control the y-scale value [1]with slider control. Then I will connect the slider value to CSV via expression. The problem I am facing is the anchor point which controls the length of the bar. I want the bar size to expand from the end only if the value increases, not both ends.

    Thanks in advance.

    Can’t you just put the anchor point at the fixed end?

    Hello Dan,

    Thanks. I have solved it. I realize that I was scaling the internal rectangular size instead of using transform scale properties.
