Hello everyone.

I believe this must be something simple but I've been struggling with it for the last 3 weeks...

I have a bunch of photos in 16:9 and 4:3. I'm trying to create a presentation and make them all look as if they are 16:9 but simultaneously using a pan-zoom effect to add some action.

At the same time I want to reduce all these 16:9 photos about 20% because of my stubbornness in using a background video running along.

I've tried to crop them but the whole cropped image starts getting bigger the moment I mess with the scale or position parameters...

Any tips would be most welcome! :)

I'd probably handle something like this via nesting.


Make a 16:9 timeline.

Add 4:3 pic but don't change sequence settings to match it.

Now scale the image up in the timeline and introduce the movement you'd want that image to have.


now use that sequence as a clip on v2 or higher in your main sequence.


on you main sequence you can scale that clip down and give it whatever animation you want.

so now yu will have 16:9, with primary layer animation and secondary animation within the clip itself.

do that for each image.

hope that helps..
