    The best way to explain it is with pictures.

    The selected clip is the one in the upper left of the viewer.

    You can see the keyframes. It’s been cropped and transformed.

    And YET!

    When I move along the timeline the cropping and the transformation changes. The image moves further left and the cropping on the left moves in while that on the right moves out.

    I don’t see the images for some reason. My thought is there may be hidden keyframes further down the clip. Try stretching the right edge of the clip to the right. You may find keyframes, especially, if the clip, or a later portion of the clip, was used elsewhere in your project.

    I can not see any images, either.

    Reset those parameters on that clip completely. Then recreate. Does it still do this?

    I too couldn’t see the attachments. But my first thought was wondering about the type of bezier curve the keyframes default to. I’ve encountered oddities like that in the past that boiled down to this issue. Here’s a Larry Jordan link that explains it. It’s an older article, but I believe remains relevant.
