How do I?  Still image to video

Mar 9, 2013 8:30 AM

I have CS6 extended.

 

I need to pan and zoom over a still image to create a short video.

I remember the process was to mark a track over the still, with points along this path that required time to transit and the degree of zoom.

On playback, it was like a video.

Think of the still as a hillside shot with a road winding from top to bottom. The video captured a zoomed in frame of just the road. Eventually, at the bottom, the frame slowly zoomed out displaying most of the still.

 

How do I do this?

    Keyframe the Position and Scale parameters of the Motion effect.

    Not sure if we can post links to Youtube here so I'll just say that if you type something like this into google "youtube how to animate a still premiere" then you will find lots of helpful videos on how to do exactly what you need. It's very easy to do what you want so don't worry. Once you get used to adding keyframes to position and scale in Effects Controls panel you'll be an ace

    Like I said in previous post(s) anchor point is the way to go with panning and scanning.

    You better ask in the Photoshop forum. This is the Premiere Pro forum.

    If you have a bunch of stills click File/scripts/load files into stacks.  Then in animation palette choose "makes frames from layers".

    There must be a process in CS6 extended that does this, why would there not be?

     

    I do hope you can actually help me, I am starting to believe it is all a bad dream (well actually a good dream, because it was so simple to do ).

    Thanks.

     

    Maybe you were using Adobe After Effects CS6.

    You're describing a camera motion path, as found in AE.

     

    Ps does not have that.
