Crop and Distort Tools

The Crop and Distort tools can be used to manipulate images directly in the Canvas,
instead of setting parameter values in a clip’s Motion tab.

 Crop tool: Allows you to drag each of a clip’s four sides inward to crop just that side.

You press the C key to select the Crop tool.

 Distort tool: Lets you drag each of a clip’s corner points independently, in order to

create perspective effects and other geometric distortion. You press the D key to
select the Distort tool.
