Using Image+Wireframe to Move Clips

In Final Cut Pro, sometimes it is easier to drag the handles of selected clips within the Canvas rather than within the Motion Tab and adjusting the parameters.  You have to make sure you are in Image+Wireframe mode to use the Wireframe handles. To toggle between Image, Image + Wireframe, & Wireframe, use the W key.

To move a clip, select a clip from the Timeline and within the Tool palette, click on the Selection Tool and drag the layer to a new position, whether it's partly or completely outside the canvas.

To rotate a clip, select a clip from the Timeline and within the Tool palette, click on the Selection Tool and drag an edge of the clip's border in a clockwise or counter-clockwise motion to rotate.
