Limitations, even Good Parents have some issues!

  • You can't copy Good Parents control from one layer to another: it simply won't work, sorry
  • If you copy layers with Good Parents controls from one composition to another, you will need to reset the Parent layers.
  • Oh and non-uniform scale may work incorrectly. I know, the humanity! Well, unfortunately it is an After Effects bug.
