How to zoom into an image that is already within an image ?
on Jan 7, 2013 at 2:26:51 pm

Hello !

I have a specific question, the keywords of which have led me nowhere so far on the net or the cow, therefore I solicitate your help dear creative fellows. I'd like to know whether it is possible to create the following effect in FCP or the FC studio suit :

First I'd like to create a Picture in the picture effect, which I know I can do, but then I'd like to zoom into the small image so that it replaces the large one on the canvas, and so on a bit like a fractal except that each time the small film is a different one.

I know it's been done in some commercials and music videos but I don't have any example in mind to show you what I mean, but I guess you can picture it ?

Thanks !
Ernesto

Yes, this is quite easily done in the FCP timeline or using Apple Motion. It's just using the "scale" control in the inspector panel in Motion, or in FCP7, the scale control under the Motion tab.




You will want the original size footage in the smaller box. Trying to upscale a smaller, low-resolution image up will quickly degrade the image.

If you want a true "zooming" effect, the main image needs to also be zoomed, only not as fast as the new one coming in. Use the keyframe controls in that scale window to set how this works.

Have a look at this clip I did years ago.
I think, it is the Effect you are talking about:

Hi,
Yes Sasha it is similar to what you have at the start of your clip.
Have you proceeded the way that has been described above by Mark Suszko ?

Looks like a fun shooting too ! Is he singing in hebrew ? If so Israƫl looks pretty cool from that perspective ;)

Hi Ernesto,

just to clarify: I only edited this clip, did off & online for it. The singer is a commercial rapper - not my style of lyrics or music. As a true Hip Hop Fan I despise this kind of music. It was only work and doesn't represent good Israeli music culture in any way.
And there is a lot of good stuff out there. Check this clip, but make sure, you glue down your furniture first - it's so groovy, stuff will start moving ;-)






For your other Q - if I remember right, I did this in After Effects, since you have much more sophisticated masking tools than in FCP.
But basically, same principle: The stuff you see in the TV is scaled down, the living room is real size.
When I did the zooming in, I added motion blur to sell the shot.
I also added some Gaussian Blur on the TV image so it fits the out of focus of the rest of the things in the same distance.


Greetings,

Nice one dude I knew these guys already, didn't know that track nor that they were from Israel. Living in Paris I hear a lot about this place and the cultural scene sounds awesome, I hope a little trip will come up soon !

Thanks for edit tips and all the best with your projects.
Ernesto
