Transform layers overview
The Motion interface provides three areas where you can transform the basic spatial properties of layers and groups—resizing, repositioning, rotating, cropping, and distorting them:
In the Canvas, where you can drag onscreen transform handles
In the Properties Inspector, where you can adjust numeric controls (sliders, dials, value fields, and so on)
In the HUD, where you can adjust a subset of the controls found in the Properties Inspector
When you transform a layer in any of these areas, the layer’s parameters are also updated in the other two sections of the Motion workspace.
