Zoom in on cropped shot and maintain size
on Aug 29, 2013 at 12:50:37 am

In FCP7 I have a sequence where I cropped a shot so it would fit about 1/4 of the screen, and now I want to zoom in on the shot and be able to move the clip around without increasing the size of the image or changing where the coordinates of the crop are. Is there a quick way to do this?

Export the shot to Apple Motion and use the 3-d camera there, I suppose.

Yup, do it in Motion. In fact, there are a couple of ways to do it. Mark mentioned one.

FCP is a really nice EDITING application; the more I am exposed to Avid, I more appreciate FCP.
But FCP is a lousy EFFECTS application. You're venturing into the realm of effects, so Motion is a better choice.

Within fcp you can nest the shot after you crop it,
Or use digital heaven's Box plugin,
Or crop with the motion controls and zoom with the Basic 3D filter
