CALayer - CABasicAnimation not scaling around center/anchorPoint

What is the bounds of your layer?

I bet it has zero size; try setting its size to the same size as your shape.

CAShapeLayer draws the shape as kind of an overlay, independent of the contents (and bounds and contentsGravity and etc.) that you'd use in an ordinary CALayer. It can be a bit confusing.

Also make sure that you're adding the animation after the view is created. If you're trying to add animation in the viewDidLoad, it probably won't work. Try adding it to viewDidAppear instead.

I only know Swift, but here's an example:

override func viewDidAppear (animated: Bool) {    addPulsation(yourButton)}func addPulsation (button: UIButton) {    let scaleAnimation:CABasicAnimation = CABasicAnimation(keyPath: "transform.scale")    scaleAnimation.duration = 1.0    scaleAnimation.repeatCount = 100    scaleAnimation.autoreverses = true    scaleAnimation.fromValue = 1.05;    scaleAnimation.toValue = 0.95;    button.layer.addAnimation(scaleAnimation, forKey: "scale")}

It's an old thread but in case this helps anyone.

This ia a coordinate space problem. You just need to set the drawing space and the space of the the path. This code works for me...

...just put this at the start of the animation creation method (inside a method on the parent view)...

// add animation to remap (without affecting other elements)    let animationLayer = CALayer()    layer?.addSublayer(animationLayer). // (don't use optional for iOS)// set the layer origin to the center of the view (or any center point for the animation)    animationLayer.bounds.origin .x = -self.bounds.size.width / 2.0    animationLayer.bounds.origin .y = -self.bounds.height / 2.0// make image layer with circle around the zero point    let imageLayer = CAShapeLayer()    animationLayer.addSublayer(imageLayer)    let shapeBounds = CGRect(x: -bounds.size.width/2.0,                             y:-bounds.size.height/2.0,                             width: bounds.size.width,                             height: bounds.size.height)    imageLayer.path = CGPath(ellipseIn: shapeBounds, transform: nil)    imageLayer.fillColor = fillColour    // **** apply your animations to imageLayer here ****

this code works unchanged on iOS and MacOS - apart from the optional needed on layer for MacOS.

(BTW you need to remove the animation layer after the animation finishes!)
