I really need your help. I tried to find the solution online, tried to find a solution myself, but I couldn't.
I am using FCP for tutorial purpose, and sometimes I want to zoom 🔎 into a zone of my screen to make it larger. After a few sections, I want to go back to full height / width.
I know I can use ken burns, or use the trim (or crop I forgot) feature, but it takes quite some time to every time create the right keyframes, zoom in, re-create new keyframes etc.
❓ My question: is there a simpler way, by just dragg- dropping for example an effect, or even better a title ( or adjustment layer) onto part of the video in order to make it zoom?
Ideally I would have a couple of title, such as "Zoom top left", "Zoom top right" , .. and I could just drag it onto my video to quick add a zoom-in > hold > zoom-out effect.
Keyframing the Scale parameter is all you need to do, simple, quick, easy.
But what you see done in most professional tutorial videos is being done with ScreenFlow. I use it for many years now with my software training videos. It retains the resolution of your image while zooming in a way FCP can't do.
I agree, probably that's the best way.
Another question: I am a big fan of keyboard shortcuts.
When I try to just Opt + K (default for adding a keyframe), it somehow doesn't apply the keyframe to my Transform parameters.
What am I doing wrong?
Yes it seems like I first have to open the editor, then select the track I want and then only I can press Opt + K.
And back to my original concern, If i want to create an overall (for example Transform + Crop) keyframe, it's not just 1 click solution anymore.
But anyways, I guess that's the only solution for now. If anyone has another solution, I am curious to know.
