Way to Make Keyframing "Position" on a Transform layer Faster

Make Clicking "Position" on a Transform layer and then clicking and dragging the video to move the clip, similar to when you click on "position" under motion properties.

 

Here's what I mean...

 

If you click on motion...

You can now click and drag anywhere on the preview video to move the scale, rotation, and position properties. This is great for keyframing. However...

If you add the transform effect (which essentially does the same thing), it doesn't allow you to do the same thing. A lot of the time, I add transform to get the motion blur effect when zooming and adjusting positioning.

This is how it looks when you click on "transform", but it doesn't let you click and drag the preview...

It looks the same as above when you click on "position" under the effect, too.

I'm hoping that you guys can hopefully update this effect in the future so that you can click and drag to move the video, much like you can on the motion properties, itself. This will help speed up retention editing for YouTube a LOT. Having to manually adjust the position and scale moving the variables themselves can get very tedious and wastes valuable time that eventually does add up.

If you highlight the transform effect, two point appear. One for position and one for Anchor point.

If you place your mouse over these points you can drag them around.

Thanks for helping out!

 

Yeah, I failed to mention that part... However, depending on how far scaled-in you are, you aren't able to select the position point, as it will go far off-screen. Yes, you could always adjust the window scale, but that wastes time. If it worked similarly to the motion properties, it would make editing a whole lot faster.

I fully support and vote for improving the movement of Transform effect across the screen similar to the process of moving the properties of the clip effect. With dots, it is extremely inconvenient and not practical. "The last century and we live in the era of ancient customs." I've been suffering for a long time and forgot to mention it.
