HARMONY distort , rigging tool . please please help

Alright, so i’m new in Harmony. currently i’m using harmony premium, i guess 17.
Well so I’m doing an animation. i’ve drawn every layer (with the pegs) etc and i’m ready to animate. I place everything well in the top view the distances etc, all good. then i want to animate a tree moving (like with the wind) and i go to my rigging tool and place the deform, all good, then I go to move the distort as i want it to distort and the damn layer goes back to the main position then even if i move it with the distortion it won’t be at the same spot i placed it. please please help
