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