I have a problem with my footage.
After a complex scene, we accidentally moved the camera before filming another part to later cut into the movie.
We try to reposition the camera matching the angles but we couldn't perfectly match the footage.
Now I have 2 steady shots and an abrupt cut between the clips. like a jump.
Is there a way to align the two footage? or blend/morph them into each other to get rid of the jump?

Just thinking out loud here 'cause my Motion 5 is tied up rendering...
Clearly, the shots are close by your description. Just a thought.. overlap the last couple of seconds of one shot over the the first seconds of the second shot. Lets say the new clip is on top. First, half-dissolve the top clip (bring opacity down) so that you can see how it aligns with the bottom clip. get the top clip as close as you can. Then, distort the corners of the upper clip, one corner at a time, until you hone in on the alignment. Once clear of the old shot, if needed, keyframe the corners to gently go back to where they were.
