Georeference feature class to raster?

Hi folks,

I have a polygon feature class that was created in reference to essentially a manually placed raster.  I now need to shift the feature class to match a properly geolocated raster.  I was thinking of using the georeferencing tool, but that's only for 2 rasters as far as I understand.  I basically need the same functionality (shift, rotate, scale to points, minimizing errors), but with a polygon and raster layer.  Any thoughts on how I might accomplish this?

I have access to ArcMap Advanced 10.8 (and it's suite of tools) and ArcGIS Pro.

Thanks in advance...

Using Editor tools. Some tools can be found under Customize > Commands tab > Editor




In case the data is geometrically distorted, you may use Spatial Adjustment as well.

The same functionality is available with the polygon edit tools.  You should be able to play around with them and fairly easily fit it to your new raster.
