I forgot to mention in connection with the example that you linked to: how that could be done in Lightworks would be to first set up a title effect to program the move and control click on the section of the graph that you want to apply the curve to. Add a simple DVE effect and check that the routing is as shown.

Adjust the crop in the DVE so that you get the masking that you want, then save the pair as a template. You now have a custom effect that you can use wherever and whenever you want. All that you have to do is edit the text in the title to suit, and fine tune move and crop settings if necessary.

Thanks jrwl. I was already playing around with it when you made this post, but it's great to see that we both achieved it the same way. What's interesting for me is those curves; working out the best angles for the smoothest movements, with the same sort of bump that the AE video showed. Adding handles to the curve points (ie Bezier curves) would make adjusting those keyframes so much easier, but in the meantime your excellent tips will have to suffice

As a matter of interest, does your graph view show the same incoming curve as jwrl's screenshot does?

Close, but I added more points so that I could control the "bump" better:

EDIT: This is 14.0.0, and I've realised that the line behaviour either side of the points isn't curved like in jwrl's image, but straight-line angles instead. Any reason for that?

There's interpolation to smooth the curve, Ctrl+click on the line bewteen two keyframe to toggle between linear and smooth. I believe this should allow smooth movement with far less keyframes than in your example shown above. That isn't Bezier with handles, but whether Bezier would create smoother movement is left to be discussed.

For further details about keyframes please see chapter "Keyframes" in current V14.0 User Guide, starting on page 180.
