This requires a bit of micro, so say if you have a medivac full of marines and you want to drop the marines in a line while your medivac keeps flying to destination. You first have to fly your medivac towards the destination, along the way you have to keep pushing 'D' then click your medivac, so -> 'D' -> click medivac -> 'D' -> click medivac, sadly there is no shift command to queue up dropping while moving. This works for multiple medivacs as well, 'D' -> click the medivac to drop, micro intensive when you have lots of medivacs doing drop or overlord doing baneling drop.

Technically, you have to stop to drop units. But you can do this so fast that it seems you never stopped. Fly towards your dropoff point and hit "d" before you get there. Click on the dropoff point, and as soon as you hear the drop sound, continue moving your medivac/prism/overlord. You will have stopped for a fraction of a second but it won't cost you too much time.

Hit "D" while your medivac is moving, your cursor will change but instead of clicking the ground to tell it where to drop, click on the medivac itself. It will begin dropping units one by one without stopping.

It also works with Overlord, Warp Prism, etc.

While the dropship is moving, press "D" and then left-click on the dropship. It'll start dropping immediately.

Hit the key D and the transporter will start dropping. Right click to move then hit the key D again. Takes a bit of micro to get it right.
