Picture in Picture Zoom Out
on Jan 27, 2011 at 1:41:44 am

I have 3 shots that I have to zoom out of sequentially.
I.e. start with one image, zoom out and I'm coming out at a board held by someone in the 2nd shot.
zoom out again and we're flying out of a picture frame in the 3d shot.

Of course, logic says when you zoom out, the previous image will become smaller.

Now I'm not an AE noob, but this drives me nuts. How to tackle this ?
3d space ? scale the comps to thousands percents and scale ? what parents to what ?

I think what really messes me up is the fact that the "pictures" we're flying out of are not the same aspect
as one another - we start in very wide frame (almost anamorphic), then zoom out of a square frame,
then out of a portrait frame.

suggestions, ideas ?

This tutorial should show you everything you need. You'll obviously need to figure out a way to blend/crop your comps so they fit aspect ratio, but it shouldn't be too difficult.
