Hi... I dont understand the purpose of the Free Distort dialog.. none of the buttons seem to do anything.. clicking Reset makes my cursonr spin for a few seconds.. but to no apparent effect.

It's not a dialog - Filters have a pop up panel where you actively change the art by moving handles in the panel itself... try it.

It's confusing because there is a Free Distort tool in the Free Transform tool panel...

You are using the effect. The little panel is for the free transform tool.

Effects allow to recreate the same effect when you change original object.

Thanks, @Met1 -- I'm going through a video that was not in my native language... I now I see the distinction between Free Distort tool  and Free Distort effect due to your tip!
