    clip effects - zooming-

      Hello i was wondering could anyone shine some light on my problem.
      I am currently using Adobe Premiere Pro and i am having so much difficulty
      with one aspect.
      I am complying still images with basic transitions and adding effects.
      I can not find the effect for zooming in on a still image, i know there is
      a transition for zoom but i want to attempt to zoom in on the picture throughout
      its duration can someone please help me.
      I am quite new to the program but everything else i have been doing is fine
      i just cannot work this one out
      Any help in this matter would be very much appreciated.

          Start reading the manual or help file on 'motion effect'.

            In the Effect Controls Panel you will find Motion. Twirl that down and you will find the Scale property for zooming in on your still.

              Thank you very much for your speedy response, I was in the motion

              section but I didn't see anything that helped me.

              I will definitely check again, I assume then there is no set effect for

              zooming with some programs I have used before it was a lot simpler.

              In the scale section do you have to set the percentages in witch you

              want to zoom, I am really grateful for your help.

                I have done, i was just wondering was there an easier way to do it,

                some programs i have used in the past it was a simple matter of adding the effect

                through drop and drag.

                I will check the motion settings out though.

                  The fixed Effects>Motion>Scale and Position are the ways to do it. If you have a lot of these, that have the same dimensions, Durations and you wish to apply the same Effects settings, you can do it to one, Rt-click on the still and choose Copy. Next, Select all others, Rt-click on them and choose Paste Attributes.


                  Some consumer NLE's do offer thngs like Random Pan & Zoom, plus some various Pan and Zoom Presets. Even the SlideShow feature in En allows for this, plus the addition of Transitions fairly automatically.


                  However, most people on PrPro are like me - they treat each still as a unique image, requiring slightly different Pans and Zooms. I seldom have more than a few images requiring the same exact settings, because of the uniqueness of each image.


                  I would assume that programs like ProShow Gold and Producer might also have many Presets to apply these Effects in a more automatic mode, but am not certain of that, as I have neither.


                  One little tip, once you have your Keyframes set - explore Continuous Bezier and also Ease Out/Ease In, to establish the Velocity and parameters of the Keyframes. They are worth a look and a bit of experimentation.


                  Good luck,
