Meanwhile, after adding a motion for one clip, you can click the Apply to All button in the Video Property section to add the motion for all clips.
Note: The Apply to all feature only works on the same type of materials. That is to say, applying a motion on one video material can only add this motion to other videos on the track using the Apply to all function; it can’t apply to the photos on the timeline. To apply a motion all pictures on the track, you need to first add a motion to one of them and then use the Apply to all utility.
The way to delete the added motion is the same as that of deleting an effect.
