Does motion affect the rate of a clock as measured by an observer moving with it? Does motion affect an observer moving relative to a clock measures its rate?

To determine

The motion affects the rate of a clock as measured by an observer moving with it. Also, the motion affects how an observer moving relative to a clock measures its rate.

Explanation

Introduction:

Time dilation is the phenomenon where the study of the relative motion of one observer with respect to other reduces the time taken by the observer.

When an observer is in the same frame of motion then both the observer have the same velocity so there is no relative motion between the observer the time does not effect in this frame of motion...
