IMovie allows users to use the zoom function for any photo, still image of a captured video or video clip that has been imported into an iMovie project. The process of zooming and panning back and forth through a photo, a still image of a captured video or video is called the “Ken Burns effect” and is designated as the effect buttons in iMovie. Ken Burns is a well-known documentary filmmaker who developed this special way of zooming and panning.

  1. 1 Launch the IMOVIE program and select the IMOVIE project for which you want to add the Zoom effect (s).

  • 2 Click on the video clip to which you are using the zoom effect within the event browser window in the upper middle part of the iMovie project screen. This will allow the selected clip to be displayed in the window on the right in the video clip event browser. Be sure to select the appropriate video clip to apply the zoom effect to it.
  • 3 Click on the "Crop" button, located in the middle of the panel, dividing the upper workspace of the project from the bottom. This button is indicated by a square with 2 lines that create corners that overlap with each other. This button will load the effects for editing the “Fit,” “Crop,” and “Ken Burns” videos into the selected video clip within the edit viewing window.
  • 4 Select the “Ken Burns” button located in the upper middle of the video editing screen. After that, green and red rectangles will appear.
  • 5 Place the rectangles according to where you want the zooming effect to begin and end.
    • Place the green rectangle in the area of ​​the image where you want to have a magnification effect when the clip starts. Place a red rectangle over the desired area where the Zoom effect (zoom effect) ends. For example, a green rectangle can be focused on a smaller area, which will create an enlargement effect, and a red rectangle can be placed in a larger aspect of the clip to zoom out. You can move these rectangles around by dragging each one to a specific place where you want to produce a zoom effect.
    • Also, resize the rectangles by dragging the corners of each rectangle back and forth accordingly, resizing the image area.
    • Selecting the double arrow button at the bottom of the screen for video editing will exchange the positions of the green and red rectangles.
  • 6 Preview the Ken Burns effect that you just created by clicking the "Play" button in the video viewing / editing window. This button is indicated by a play symbol (triangle pointing to the side). Adjust the rectangles to get the effect you want.
  • 7 Click on the “Done” button as soon as you change the effect to the desired position to apply the effects you just created
