Duration of effects


Recommended Posts


Hi, new user here.

I searched everywhere but couldn't find it...

I have still pictures on the time line. When adding a video effect on a photo, like PAN&ZOOM, the effect will take as long as the clip takes. What I am trying to achieve is the zoom effect to take 3 seconds, while the clip is shown for 6 seconds.

Is that doable?


Kind regards,

There are a number of ways to accomplish that.  Try applying pan and zoom effects independently.  Then use the animation editor to set IN/OUT keyframes within the clip;  no need for splits.

In this example the action begins and ends with the first and last ZOOM and POSITION keyframes respectively.


The result.  Note the freeze at both beginning and end of this single clip.  Positioning here was for illustration only.
