Move object from one specific place to another

I was wanting to know if in Premiere Elements, if there is a way to get an object (including smaller ones) to move smoothly from one specific place to another (a specific starting point, and a specific ending point).  Even just being able to move horizontally and vertically would be helpful.  Can the "slide" transition be used for this, or would there possibly be something else?

You didn't say what kind of small object, but you do it in the Applied Effects panel with keyframes.

Do you mean cutting out an object and move it to a different location in the frame?

No, sorry, I mean an object (including small ones) that can be put into the video in a specific place, then somehow moving smoothly from that exact place to another specific location.  For example, a small object put into the video at the exact position of 189.4 / 610.6, then moving smoothly in the video to the exact positon of 1497.8 / 610.6.

The video in the previous post, unless I missed something, does not actually state how to create a keyframe in the first place.  I wrote something that is hopefully understandable to explain how to create a keyframe to make an object (just a file, whether video, gif, or picture, put into the video) move a single direction.  

------------

Put object that you want to move in the part of the video where you want it to start.    Then, if you do not want the object to move right away, move the arrow thing over the Video/Audio part to the part of the video that you want the object to move.  Make sure the clip you want to move is selected (if it was deselected), then go to Applied effects, then Motion. 

 

Above the Motion box part, to the right of the words “Applied Effects”, there is a little time clock symbol with an arrow to the left of it that is pointing to the left.  Click on it to bring out the keyframes part.  The arrow will now be to the right of the time clock symbol, and pointing to the right.  There will be a line with an arrow that is similar to the one in the main editing area with the video/audio parts.  It represents the part of the movie that the arrow in the main editing area is in.  If the main arrow is five seconds into the movie, then the keyframe line and arrow will be five seconds into the movie.

 

In the Motion box, click on the little time clock symbol to the left of the word “Position”.  This will add the first keyframe, symbolized by a little diamond on the line with the arrow.

 

Note the exact position of the object selected.  The first number is where the object is vertically.  (If the object is moved upward or downward, then that number will change.)  The second number is where the object is horizontally.  If the object is moved to the left or right, then that number will change.)

 

If one wants the object to move up or down, note the first number, and keep it the same for the changed position for the second keyframe.  If one wants the object to move left or right, note the second number, and keep it the same for the changed position for the second keyframe. 

 

For creating the second keyframe and moving the object to the right, click on the main editing arrow and drag it to how much amount of time of when you want the object to stop moving.  Then click on the object itself that you want to move in the movie itself, and drag it to the approximate position where you want it to stop moving to the right.  Instead of just the square around the object that means that the object in the movie is selected, as you move it, there will be a dotted line to the left of the object that starts where the first keyframe is (where you want the object to start moving from).  When you let go of the mouse and stop dragging the object, a new keyframe (a diamond on the vertical line in the keyframe box) will automatically be created.  If the second number (the one that notes where the object is horizontally in the video) is not the exact same as the first number as from the first keyframe, then change it manually to that exact number. 

 

One can then move the editing area in the main editing area to where the object starts moving, and then watch it move to the right.

 

To delete a single keyframe, go the the keyframe editing box and move the vertical line on top of  the diamond that one wants to be deleted, then go to the diamond  symbol in a box near the position numbers in the motion box (inbetween the left and right arrows for going to the next keyframe.  The right arrow goes to the next keyframe to the right, and the left one goes to keyframe on the left.  If one direction is not available since there are no more to the left or right, that specific arrow will be gray and unable to be clicked.)  The diamond symbol in the position box will change to dark gray behind the diamond the keyframe is selected.  Click on the diamond symbol between the arrows, and the keyframe that is selected will be deleted. 

 

To delete all of the Position keyframes, click on the timer clock symbol near the word position, and choose to have all the keyframes deleted in the warning box that asks if one wants all of the keyframes to be deleted.

Well written!  That took some work.  For some, a visual demonstration is easier.  Steve Grisitti produce a tutorial earlier this year that demonstrates keyframing.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q8sFPBFGM50
