are these the tools under presets?
I am unsure how to use them to zoom in on a segment of my video - can you point me directly to a source of information to tell me how to do this.
The link you gave me is good, but not specific enough to my needs even after lengthy searching!
unfortunately I dont have the time to read manuals and help files which tend to be ridiculously large.
Your bad luck.
Start by Selecting a clip then taking a look in the 'Effects Window'...
you are on your own from there...
Go to help.
Type "scale" into the search box.
You will find your answer there.
You could try this:
Assuming CS3 and no motion on your screen ie a still image:
Select your clip in timeline.
Go up to Effect controls and twirl down Motion.
Move the TLI to where you want to start your zoom.
Click the little stopwatch for scale, and anchor point.
Shift R arrow key x2 to move forward 10 frames.
The anchor point is the circle in the middle of the monitor picture.
Using the numbers under the anchor point (shift exagerates) drag the anchor point over to where you want to zoom.
Then increase scale to cover your monitor screen. Scaling to this level may cause jagged edges.
Then move your TLI to where you want to stop the zoom and hit the little keyframe button between the two tiny arrows for both anchor point and scale. Notice you are creating keyframes.
Then do shift R arrow x2 again and click the tiny circle next to motion to reset your keyframes back to baseline.
You could also use motion and scale instead of anchor point, but to my untrained eye, I like the anchor point best. Hopefully I didn't leave anything out.
