Parenting/Unparenting affects values of original layer
Here's a nitpicky one for you:
I have a Point, which I parent to (a) video layer(s) in Hitfilm 3 Pro.
I use it so I can adjust the Scale of the Point and have multiple layers Parented to it all change Scale (and other things) together, but depending on the order of operations, this isn't happening.
To start, I have one Layer and one Point. I set the Scale of the point to 105%. I parent the Layer to it. it's Scale changes to 95.2% and it does not get bigger. Why not?
I set the scale of the Layer back to 100%, it gets bigger, as intended.
I then UnParent the Point and the Scale of the Layer now changes to 105% and stays the same, larger size. Why?
I set the scale of the Layer to 100%, it gets smaller, as intended.
Now I set the Point's Scale to 100%. I Parent the Layer to it. Its Scale remains at 100%. This I expect. I then set the Scale of the point to 105% and the Layer gets bigger (still at 100% itself) This I also expect.
But, now I Parent another Layer to the point and the Scale of the 2nd Layer changes to 95.2% and it does not get bigger.
This was driving me batty, as unless I remember to Parent all my layers to the Point before I change the scale of the Point, they're at different sizes. Instead I have to reset the values of the Point, which affects everything currently parented to it, Parent the New Layer to it, then change the values of the Point back to what I want so everything is now affected by it.
All other values, such as angles and position are also inherited in the same way, so changing more than one thing = not fun ...
Is this by design? If so, can I turn it off?
