Easy way to move animated layer ??

Hi

So I have a project with 100's of images moving around.
Now I need to make some adjustments to the position of some of those layers without changing theyr keyframes.

I know of 2 ways to do it:
1 - precompose each one and then move the composition.
2 - each time I wanna move a layer I need to bring my timeline to 1 of the keyframes, select all the keyframes and then I can move.

Both solutions are VERY time consuming as I have 100's of layers i want to move freely.

IS the a simple and intuitive way Im unaware of ?

Create a null object, link your layers to the null object, move the null object.

thanks scrimski.

Yes, this option is actually better than the 2 I mentionned.
But there are stil actions (link and unlink from a long long list) I have to do every single time I wanna move a layer.

Is there a simpler way when I could just freely select move selcet move select move ?

You could change the anchor point values of the layer. That will affect rotaions and scaling operation though.

Ive tried it with the "Pan behind" tool and It created a keyframe for the position so I thought of ditching the Anchor point, but now I tried changing it through the value (A on the keyboard), and it actually works !

Luckily I dont have Scale and rotation on those layers so NP...
Thnx !
