You cant use the Pan and Zoom tool for video but you can pan and zoom it using a variety of tools in the effects palette. For example look in Blend for 3D warp or perhaps in image for resize. You can keyframe moves on the video. Obviously bear in mind that any excessive zooming/panning is going to affect the quality but those are the places to try.

best wishes

As Neil said, Pan & Zoom is only for still and does have the ability to reference bigger than HD frame size. There are other tools such as 3D Warp or "reformat" (pan & scan) that can do that for moving video, but can only extract from an HD size frame to start with. Everything will be scaled from that reference. Even with AMA, that can access larger than HD frame sizes, will first scale to HD, then extract from there. Long time feature request. Perhaps next release...

Avid FX which comes with MC can scale video and Pan and zoom without pre scaling to HD

Good to know, thanks! So it links to an external video file that can be greater than HD in size? Does it have to be .mov or what other file formats can it access, such as R3D, etc.?

Avid FX has pretty limited format support but you can always convert the file first.
