simple zoom is an iMovie plug-in that mimics the effect of a zoom lens. you can use it to enlarge portions of a clip. the clip is enlarged so that the are you focus on fills the entire screen. the plug-in allows you to choose animated cue in and cue out effects.
what should I use it for?
use this effect to visually zoom part of the clip.
an effect cannot create new information. therefore, the zoomed part of the clip may quickly appear pixellated.
version 3 requires OS 10.4 ("Tiger") to run.
this slider allows you to gradually bleed back the original picture into the zoomed picture. under certain circumstances, this allows the viewer a reference to what is being viewed while simultaneously seeing the whole picture. use this effect sparingly, and only when you are sure you need it.
this slider controls the speed of the 'zoom lens', or how quickly the effect visually cues into the zoomed portion at the beginning of the clip.
this slider controls the speed of the 'zoom lens', or how quickly the effect visually cues out of the zoomed portion at the end of the clip
