I received this query by email and thought it may be useful to some users:
I do have a question about the zoom effect on video editing. I am trying to get a real slow zoom on a jpeg. The only zoom I have been able to achieve is zoom for the whole picture frame (for example - if I want to zoom in it makes the picture start out real small then the size of the picture zooms small to large). I don’t want the size of the picture to change. I just want to zoom in on the picture.
I have put together a short video to illustrate how you can control your Zooms using the associated effect envelope:
In the video below, I created a sample video for a fictional cupcake company in Boston. Using some photos and one piece of stock video footage, we were able to create an effective short video for a small company. You can see the Zoom in Effect on the map at 0:32.
