Using the Transform effect

To recap our dilemma with Continuous Rasterization turned off for this vector-based layer transformations occurring after effects, and that means the rotation and the scale are happening after the bevel alpha and the drop shadow. The good things are the Drop Shadow distance and the Bevel Alpha size are both being scaled up along with the layer. The negatives are the Bevel Alpha angle and the Drop Shadow angle are being rotated as the layer is being rotated. If we enable Continuous Rasterization for this vector-based layer, transforms are occurring before effects, and now rotation is happening before the effects are applied which is a good thing for the drop shadow and bevel alpha direction. But it's a bad thing for the size of the bevel alpha compared to the ever-expanding type and for the drop shadow distance. You can use precomposing to solve some of these problems, but in this movie we're going to use the Transform effect which is a different solution....
