Jointly animate multiple tracks

I want to jointly animate multiple tracks. My issue is that I add a new call out like 'blur' at a later stage and want it to move along with the animations (incl. rotations) introduced to an already existing track. With a clean start I can do this with grouping them. You may say I did a poor planing which is correct but is there any help at this stage?

I'm not sure I understand exactly what you are starting with but I will guess you have assets on your timeline that are NOT grouped and you want to apply the same animation to a newly added asset???

If that is correct, you could always select the animation on the original asset (it will turn yellow), then copy and paste it onto your new asset. This will apply the same visual properties to the new asset including the position and scale - those are usually the problems for me when I copy and paste animations (i.e. visual properties). Depending on how complex your animations are, it may be painful to try to edit the position/scale so I recommend weighing your options between a copy/paste and recreating from scratch.

Another option would be to add the animation to the new asset/callout and then compare the visual properties of the existing animation and apply it to the new animation. The majority of my animation work is done on the visual properties tab.

I hope this helps.
