I can’t find the Motion Effect icon on my Avid Media Composer
The Motion Effect icons have been moved in Media
Composer. They can be found or mapped in various ways. Looking in a
pop-up window as you see below:
Figure 1. Pop-up window.
You will see a fast menu up in the top left of the window. When you click on it the menu opens up and you will see the Motion Effect icon appear in the menu shown in Figure 2.

If you are using Source/Record monitors and do not
have the pop-up windows enabled, you can map your keyboard, to do Motion
Effects. In your Project window if you double-click on the keyboard
setting and open the keyboard map.

Once you open the keyboard map you will see a dialog like you see in Figure 4.

Now you need to open the Command Palette. If you go
Tools à Command Palette, you will see a window appear like the one in
Figure 5. Command Palette.
Click on the FX tab at the top of the window. Make
sure the Button to Button Reassignment option is highlighted. Using your
mouse drag the Motion Effect icon
to a keyboard button on your keyboard map. I chose the M key but you can chose any key you like.

Now you can press the M key to open the Motion Effect tool.
