How to precisely set position of video on screen?

Hi,

I am a new user and am trying to figure out how to move the video around on the screen to a specific position.

For example, if I add a video to my project and then in the preview window I click on the video image I get small 8 blue squares around the perimeter by which I can grab and drag to resize the video on the screen. I can also grab and move the video around on the screen. My problem is that after moving it or resizing it, I wanted to put it exactly back in place, but I can't see how to do so. I could eyeball it, but I am assuming there is a way to precisely put it back without eyeballing pixel perfect placement which is hard to do.

Also, sometimes I want to move the video up a certain distance from the bottom of the screen (to add in some text without clipping the bottom of the video). Is there a way to precisely move it up X pixels? This is basically the same question as above...just another use for the same feature...a feature that I cannot find.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!!!

Joe

Aha!

I assume I have found it! Wow! That took at least 30 minutes total!

I found settings in "Applied Effects" (in right side menu) under "Motion" that apparently apply to the video clip even if there is no "motion" so to speak. They allowed me to do everything I asked about in my question above!

Glad I found it! I was getting worried I would need a more expensive Video Editor. So far, Premiere Elements is pretty good!

Posted in case anyone else needs help with this.

Thanks!

Joe

Ann Bens,

Please don't take offense, but I asked a specific question and was expecting a specific answer. Your answer is a little condescending and does not help. I have already looked at a LOT of the Getting Started info and videos. And for my specific question that I needed help with today I spent a lot of time searching Adobe's help and Google.

I am thankful I was able to figure it out myself.

Thanks

Joe

Should have told that up front.
