      The effects are no different from the ones in Motion, they are for people who don’t have Motion, or who don’t know how to make them available on a Final Cut Pro timeline.

      For the kind of video distortion you want, there’s After Effects – which works on the Mac and takes a lot of time to learn and if you’ve got access to a PC there’s STOIK Deformer. I’ve never used it, but it seems to do what you want.
