Resetting scale of imported object to 1

I have an imported (alembic) plane that contains baked P & R keyframes. I notice the scale is not equal. So if I child an object to the plane, it's naturally getting distorted the same as the plane.

How can I get the animated plane's scale back to 1,1,1 (or at least all 0.365 in this case)? Freezing transforms doesn't seem to have any effect on the children.

Howdy,

Use the "Reset Scale" command.

Adios,
Cactus Dan

And enable the compensate points option so it puts the object back into shape afterwards.

With all respect Dan, Reset Scale doesn't seem to do anything more than type 1,1,1 in the Scale parameter
