Create a keyframe point representing that 100% Scale then, a few seconds later, create a keyframe point representing 0% Scale or whatever you need.

Though if at 100% your video is filling your video frame, there is no way not to see its edges as it scales down in size.

That's why I think the video in the sample you referred to created the zoom out effect with camera movement rather than a zoom effect.

If it is already at 100% and fills the screen, you can't zoom out without black around the edges.
You need to start out with an image that is larger than the screen when at 100%.

You might try enlarging the image to 125% then zoom back to 100%. Otherwise you will get black edges.

First of all thanks for all the great input; it is very informative and given me a different perspective.
I am really open to the idea of the movement as part of the zoom effect in one or more of these "zoom or movement transitions" that are displayed in the clip. I have seen some of the original clips and and a couple were shot with a racing drone, so the speed would enhance the camera movement. However some of the other clips are shot with a "conventional phantom or mavic" moving more slowly. I have to say that the idea of creating whip or similar movement transitions with a drone seems like it would take video planning, editing and piloting to levels if not beyond my capabilities at least beyond my patience. I know there a lot of YouTube videos using some very unique zoom transitions and other videos showing the use of mirroring or some other effects to get there. All this makes me realize I need to continue to improve my basic editing skills (and video planning) to get as close as possible.
