I downloaded the falcon punch preset when I got this program, the only thing is, how do you move the preset? If I move the origin, the textures inside only move. Can anyone help?

Just looking at the downloads page, it appears to me that the preset's shape is ceated by a mask. Try moving the mask.

yes, I moved the mask. But on the next frame, it reverted back into the original position (Right in the center.)

Then its a matter of keyframes. You may need to delete some to get it to move the way you want, or replace them with keyfrmaes of your own.

Can someone tell me how to FLIP the preset? I know it's a mask, but there's no way for me to punch on the right side. The starting position is on the left.

There isn't a way to just flip a freehand mask. Your best bet is to render out the effect with an alpha channel, then re-import it as a stock clip and flip that. Or, you could flip the footage underneath, set up the effect and render, then flip the rendered clip back around when you go back into your video editor.
