You need to use the Scale and Position properties of the built-in Motion Effect. Keyframes are the solution.
This tutorial was created in version 1.5 of PPRO, but shows exactly what you are asking for. The motion settings work pretty much the same in ver 3. I hope it is helpful for you.
hey thanks for answer, but I'm still bit confused on how to make it zoom, I tried chopping the clip into small cut frames and increasing its scale percentage accordingly but it came out bit jittery and not what I had in mind.
^^This is the Sony Vegas version and it shows how to zoom in/out into a certain point in the footage- is there not anything similar on Adobe? Does seem a bit disappointing to think there isn't since it would be a much used effect on the software as I'm sure a lot of others would want to use it. Is there no 3rd party plugins that have the same effect? Referring back to the Motion Effect Scale + Positions part could you perhaps describe the process in gradually zooming into/out of the footage, I gave it my best but I'm pretty hopeless, it would be very helpful. Sorry for moaning, I just really need this effect fast!
Ah thanks for the link cwrig, I'll be sure to give it a try! Thanks x
Don't chop it up. Use keyframes. Move to the next point on the timeline, set the keyframe, move to the next point and change the scale and position.
Whatch the tutorials and understand the keyframes.
Ahh savior thanks so much guys!!! Sorted- I didn't realize how easy it is! Thanks a mill
