An entire world of editing and compositing possibilities opens when you begin to change motion parameters for a clip. Sometimes these changes will correct something about an image, such as cropping out a portion of an image you do not want. Sometimes you change motion parameters to create a simple motion effect, such as changing the size and position of a clip to create the newscaster's picture-in-picture effect. But you can also create highly complex motion effects utilizing multiple images whose motion parameters are animated over time.
