I don't understand the question.
"Ken Burns effect" is used for still images, as I understand it. I want to use the same panning effect on moving images. Here is an example of what I want to do:
I don't own Adobe Premeire yet.. I am shopping for a pgm to do the above.
The shots you refer to look just like camera pans to me. ie done in Camera
You seem to be talking about two totally different things. Panning is done the same way for video as for stills, once you're working inside the NLE. When you talk about "moving grass" and "sparkling water" it sounds like you want special effects, which are much better applied in something like Adobe After Effects.
You will find links to many free tutorials in the PremiereProPedia that will quickly show you how things are done in Premiere Pro.

I think she is talking about panning across the video frame, which is, of course, already full frame and can't be panned. The stills that are being panned are larger than the project frame size. Amy, Craig's point is that this is not an effect, but actual camera movement made while shooting. To pan the video frame, you'd have to scale it up and thereby lose quality.
I think you can do it using a high def shot in an SD project.
After taking into consideration the above comments on the quality hit you'll take, you can Keyframe the Motion (Effects>Motion and Scale) in the Effects Panel, just like you'd do for for stills. First, you'll need to Scale up, so that you have material beyond the frame to allow for Pans. Then, with Zooms, you'll just increase/decrease that Scale.
Try it, and judge the quality of the results. There WILL be a hit, but maybe you can live with it.
Do start with DV-AVI material, so you have whatever quality you can squeeze. Do not even bother with highly compressed Video file formats, as you WILL hate it.
If you don't know Keyframing, do read up on it in the manual. Eddie's Premiere-pedia has a lot of tutorials on Keyframing too. However, it is really just like with stills, only you're starting with a bit lower rez to begin with and then Scaling that up.
Thank you Hunt for the assistance. I appreciate your time. This issue has been resolved.. by going with another program, which will remain anonymous! ~Amy
Craig, out of respect for the Adobe brand will I not mention Sony Vegas Movie Studio Platinum here. Since you ask. ~Amy
Just out of curiosity, which of those guessing really understood what you wanted to do?
And what does Vegas offer that Premiere doesn't which allowed you to do it?
Well.. Bill Holt. He gets me. :) And I don't know if Premiere does or does not do what I need to get done. Vegas is just easier for me to work with.. I just found it to be more intuitive. I did give an example (someone else's work on YouTube), if you want to understand what I was asking. Plus, this version of Vegas is inexpensive.
