Premiere Pro: A Fast Way to Move the Anchor Point

Posted on by Larry

The anchor point is that spot around which an image rotates or scales. Its default position is in the center of the frame. However, moving it to a corner or an edge often makes a zoom or rotation more interesting.

Complicating changing the location of the anchor point in Premiere is that Premiere uses the top left corner of an image as the 0,0 point. (Unlike Final Cut, which uses the center of the image.) This means we can quickly get lost calculating where the point needs to move using the X, Y coordinates.

Relax. There’s a much easier way.
