Put it on a track above your primary clip
Lock the primary clip track ( so your don't move it or the zoom doesn't get applied to it
Then crop the Copy down to the area you want to zoom
Then add a animation to zoom in the clip-copy
then add the "Restore animation" to zoom it out again.
Click to enlarge image
I added a optional background dim in this example.
The Gif doesn't do it Justus. as a video it play smoothly.
You would want to apply 2 separate animations. One zooming the image outward.
A delay duration of your choice as to how long it's fullscreen or however large you make.
Than another animation to return it to normal.
1.Start of zoom
2.End of zoom
3.Delay duration between animations
4.Back to original
I'm using Camtasia 2019 and here's my best shot at describing the visual I have in mind.
Imagine two photos on the screen side by side. They have wide white borders to make them look like old snapshots. The one on the right is static, but the one of the left zooms in on the faces of the people in the photo WITHOUT THE PHOTO ITSELF GROWING TO OCCUPY MORE OF THE FRAME. That is, the dimensions of the photo borders remain intact while the image INSIDE the borders expands.
I did some fairly elaborate zoom effects on my YT Channel years ago and using an earlier version of Camtasia. I think the key to doing what you want is knocking out (make transparent) a section of the photo within the picture frame and overlay that over the zooming face pictures.
If you’re applying a border to the images with Camtasia. Or the border is part of your photos already. There is no way to control how those borders react. In either case they would grow with image zooming applied.
Animated cropping of the outside borders could be another approach, however. Camtasia lacks the ability to animate a crop smoothly. It’s erratic and inconsistent when applied. I’ve tried unsuccessfully to apply the technique ever since I started using Camtasia many years ago. I won’t bother explaining in detail what’s wrong with the technique.
Since everything has to be stacked in layers in the proper
order. There’s only one approach I’m aware of that would ensure a professional
looking result. That would require creating a template with artificially
created borders. Then placing the images behind the template in the proper
stacking order. Animating the image to enlarge within the template. Like this
PNG image below which has a transparent background within the frames borders. I
created it in Photoshop. If you want to save that to your computer and give it
a whirl. Please feel free to do so.the borders at the top and the bottom, could be enhanced with an Animated background or a still image.
the image below is what the template actually looks like in Camtasia. You cannot see the transparent area on this webpage because you're only seeing the white background of this webpage.
you could actually create your own templates within Camtasia using callouts. You would need several callouts to create the borders. You would also have to fill the area within the borders with green. Exporting the image as a PNG. Reimporting the image.
You would apply remove a color to the green areas to make that part of the image transparent. Which is a heck of a lot to go through. But Camtasia cannot export images with transparency. So this is strictly a technique for using Camtasia exclusively.the new template would act exactly as the Photoshop image above. However, you can design a template to whatever dimensions Work best with your project.
The effect you’re trying to create would require several steps regardless of the program you’re using. So unless you really want this effect. There’s little point in my going into any further details.
If you still want to Pull this off. I’m willing to provide further instructions if needed.
Good luck with your project. Regards, Joe
