I'd like to batch crop all while moving the cropped section with each file.  This is for time lapse, so it will consist of about 500 files.  I'm hoping it will give the effect of panning.  I can do this in vegas but I have to zoom and pan AFTER the file is made.  The zoom reduces the quality bad.  My thinking is that if I can do this with picture files prior to making the video, the quality will be much better.  Any help?

    I’m not sure what you are trying to achieve exactly.

    Assembling an animation and then animating its position on the canvas should be possible in Photoshop, though.

    Maybe dedicated video editing software like After Effects or Premiere might be a better fit for the task.


    Also you should not assume that everybody knows what you mean by »vegas«.

    Video editing is not my speacialty, so maybe you should also ask over at


    open, crop, save, close - open, crop (but move the crop to the right 2 pixels), save, close.....and continue.

    I guess this could be automated with a Script, but it would likely run pretty long and have to run as long again if any changes should prove necessary.

    Maybe someone over at

    might provide help.


    In any case I think it may be better to create an overlarge animation and then animate that.

    But I’m not sure if that would work out in CS4.
