Zoom out from cropped clip

Specific to Premiere Elements version 15

Zoom out from cropped clip

Postby abgtc » Sat Feb 02, 2019 3:02 pm

I started Steve's very useful tutorial on basic keyframing but soon realized there was a problem; I want to zoom out from a clip that I've cropped. When I designate the smaller size I'd like to zoom to, the effect –- understandably -- results in black space around the clip, because it's zooming out from the cropped version.

What I'd like, and of course it may not be possible, is to zoom out from the cropped version to the full uncropped version. Any chance of that?

Basic keyframing usually refers to making a pan & zoom motion path by animating the Motion effect. Is this what you're doing?

If so, I'm not clear how anything got cropped. Can you clarify?

I cropped all of a clip; now I want to take part of the already-cropped clip and zoom out.

Once you crop a clip, you remove the pixels outside the crop. The black space you see around the image is how transparency is indicated in Premiere Elements. It's black because there is nothing to show. If you were to place another clip on a video track below the one that's cropped, the other image would show around the edges as you zoom out.

For want you want to do, you normally don't want to work with a cropped image. Place the uncropped clip on the track and make sure "scale to framesize" is unchecked. Then set the scale property in Motion effect to show the part of the image you want to start at. Now, when you zoom out by changing the scale property you can see the rest of the image.
