Join Ian Robinson for an in-depth discussion in this video Resizing for speed with vectors, part of After Effects Guru: Animating Logos.

Now, if you select layer one, and press S to open…the scale if you don't already have it open, we can…click and drag on the scale perimeter to increase the scale.…Now, of course, it's losing resolution here.…So, we want to collapse the transformations.…When we do that, now, I get a nice, representation of the logo.…
