The next area contains the animation effects.
Unlike the pixel effects, the animation effects allow you to animate or to transform the geometry of the layer.
The first set of effects can be use to apply automatic motion.
The auto-move effects can be used to apply a directional motion to the layer.
You can change the speed.
You can apply a strob to the motion.
And of course you can change the curve type : linear, sinus, etc.
It is also possible to use sound capture in order to link the motion to the amplitude of an external sound source.
It is very useful if you want a layer to react automatically to sound.
You have also the auto-scale.
It is similar to the auto-move but it transforms the size instead of the position of the layer.
Like for the auto-move, you can change the speed, the size and the curve type.
The auto-color allows you to animate the post-colorization and the transparency of the layer.
And finally you have the auto-rotate that can be use to apply an automatic rotation to a layer.
