Smart focus panning, not zooming

I am experimenting for the first time with smart focus. The first project went well. 
I resized it from 1080p to 720p and all transitions were good. 

The second and third one didn't work. Smart Focus is panning but not zooming. In other words, it moves the window but the zoom level always stays the same. 

I noticed that after changing project size the window was already zoomed in. So, before starting editing I right clicked on the canvas and the clicked on Scale to fit. Did that affect the behavior of Smart Focus?

I probably found a workaround. After reducing the size of the project to 720p, I add at the very beginning of the timeline a "Scale to fit" animation.
The following animations seem to work as expected in a couple of videos I edited.
