you can select the in/out keyframes, copy to clipboard, then paste wherever

It is possible to do this quite easily, although it involves a little bit of manual work. You basically add markers, say, at every 20 seconds (you can do without the markers but it would be easier to just to it like this to mark your places first). Then create the first 'zoom in' animation, using the custom animation, and then copy this animation at each 20-second mark. 

Then, for going back out (zoom out), create a 'restore' animation and paste it in-between, wherever you want to go back, say every 10 seconds after the zoom in.

I just tested this and did it quite fast for an entire clip. I can make you a demo video of this if you need. I have lots of other tutorials on my channel, for beginners: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cJY7_tjGqQM&list=PL5dqU8ndfeoiU2qBMM9nqhqQj47XXgLLu

Hope this helps.

The quickest method I can think of involves basic math and gets you there pretty quickly.

My animations were 1 second in duration.
The zoom in effect started at 19 seconds and ended at 20.
I remained zoomed in for 2 seconds.
Then zoomed back out.

I started by applying the first zoom in and out animations. I did this twice to arrive at 43 seconds.
Then, I held down the shift key. Clicking each animation to select all of them.
Then I copied them.


Moving the playhead to the 1:23:00 mark.
40 seconds x 2 = 120 + the additional 2 seconds of static zoom in and 1 second of zoom out = 1:23
Thats why I started zooming in at 19 seconds. To keep the math simple. If you want to start zooming in at 20 seconds, it will take a little more effort.

I pasted in the animations.



I selected and copied all of them again.
Pasting them in at 2:43.
Pasting them in again at 5:23.

Rinse and Repeat, I'm at 10:43



As I was selecting all the animation keyframes.
More than once I accidentally move one as I was sweeping the timeline and selecting them. So pay attention, and if one moves.Hit Ctrl+Z. It will move back into place.

Regards,Joe
