Need Zoom Pan Utility?

Need Zoom Pan Utility?

Need Zoom Pan Utility?


I'm looking for a way to pan and zoom on still photos ala Ken Burns "The Civil War".

I'd like to be able to define start and end framing and the time required to complete the pan or zoom and have it save to a high quality video file.

For instance: start with and area on the left side of the image, pan slowly to the center and then pull out until the whole image is visible in a set amount of time.

I then want to open the files in Premiere Elements 3 and put them together with Titles, transitions, narration and music track make my own documentary.

Does anyone know of a program that will do this?
Is there a way to do this in Premiere?

Thanks for the help.



RE: Need Zoom Pan Utility?

In the full versions of Premiere the way to do this is the Motion effect.  Maybe there is something similar in Elements?

Thanks Akribie

This is just what I was looking for!
