If you want to highlight an object in your video, a great way is to zoom in on it. What you’ll be doing is making the image bigger, which will give the impression that you’re zooming towards it. You can zoom by Manipulating the Clip Anchor Point and Scale or Changing Position and Scale.

  1. Method 1: Manipulating the Clip Anchor Point and Scale

    Click on the clip you want to zoom into. Go to the Effect Controls Panel. Choose the Anchor Point and drag it to your focus point, the cat. Set the play head where you want the zoom to begin. Set the time at, for example, 00:00:01:00. Next, set the first keyframe for Scale by clicking on the stopwatch icon.

    Your play head must be set to the end of the zoom. Then click on the diamond icon, and set the new Scale for the zoom. The anchor point sets the zoom to focus on the correct place automatically. Your zoom is set!

  2. Method 2: Changing position and scale

    Choose a clip in your timeline. Then place the play head where you want the movement to start. Open the Effect Controls panel.  Locate Scale and Position. To turn key framing on, click on the stopwatch. Then set a keyframe for Scale and Position. Any changes made will be recorded by the keyframe. Move the play head to where you want the movement to stop and adjust the Scale and Position, so you’re zoomed in on your subject. Play it back and make any adjustments you want. To speed up the movement, move the keyframes closer together. To slow it down, move the key frames farther apart.
