Zoom and "Shift" type transition

Specific to Premiere Elements version 15

Zoom and "Shift" type transition

Postby RonS.522 » Thu Mar 05, 2020 12:47 pm

New member looking for help. I have watched a lot of Steve's videos on YouTube that have provided a lot of help in learning Premiere Elements. I currently use Premiere Elements 15 for video production. Most of my movies are from GoPro, Mavic Drone or a combination. I have seen some very nice zoom in and out transitions on YouTube videos and I am trying to replicate if possible in Premiere Elements. The standard zoom that comes with Elements just does not replicate and even the short 1 sec duration for the zoom in Elements does not come close to what I want.
In addition I have seen what I am calling a "shift" or sliding transition in drone footage that I also would like to use in Elements. I often use Timestretch to speed up the footage, but I do not think that is what is happening.
As a new user I can not post a link to a YouTube video as reference. So it is asking a lot, but the introduction is in the YouTube video for Rick Moore SSL 415. The introduction starts at ~1:46 and the Zoom transitions or used extensively throughout the into. The shift I am referring to occurs at 1:54 and 1:58 second marks. I am calling it a shift because it does not appear to be a zoom and does not look like a timestretch.
Can I achieve this in Premiere Elements? If so how? If not how close can I get?
Any help is appreciated.

Hi, Ron. Welcome to Muvipix. It's pretty likely you can create in Premiere Elements what you're looking to do.

Our webmaster, Ron, may be able to unlock your account so you can post a link to your video. Though I think it's this video, right?

If so, the zoom transition shouldn't be too hard do recreate. Rather than using the Zoom In/Out transition included with the program, I'd create that transition using Motion keyframes. That way you can create the double-zoom effect in the video rather than the zoom in/zoom out effect in the standard transition. (Do you know how to create zoom/Motion keyframed animation?)

Though it also seems to be combined with some camera movement away that does apparently include some time stretching. I may need to download the segments of video, slow them down and study them to see exactly what's going on.

It does appear to be a combination of camera movements, time shifts and transitions to me. But let's see what others see and what they recommend.

Here's the essential segment of the video slowed down to 10% its actual speed.

And, as I suspected, it's a combination of Zoom/Motion keyframes and camera movement, timed by keyframing to look like you're backing out of one scene and into another.

It shouldn't be hard to reproduce, assuming you have video that includes similar camera movement.

I think that much of the more recent "Zoom" and some other type effects are done in camera rather than in edit. Excellent example in the clip posted above by Sidd at about the 4:00 mark.

Steve:
1. Yes that is the correct video. Great idea slowing the video down to analyze.
2. There is definitely camera movement involved in some of those zoom transitions in that segment since it is part of the drone flight. There appear to be a few zoom type later in the intro that are straight line though (at least to me).
3. What do you mean by double zoom?
4. Concerning key frame animation. I'll just answer No, I do not have any experience. I have been watching video on doing this and practiced on several clips, but to date do not have the skill to use effectively.
5 I guess as a hobbyist I was hoping for some kind of drag and drop type of answer to get the effect. It appears it my take more and I am open to suggestions and help.

This tutorial is a couple of years old, but it's still valid. It shows the basics of creating keyframed animation. It should give you an idea how to create a zoom out transition from the center of a video.

By "double zoom" I just meant that one clip ends with a zoom out transition and the next clip begins with a zoom out, giving the illusion that the transition is taking place in one continuous zoom out.

Thanks Steve;
I am playing with that and on the Zoom out for the 2nd clip; since the video starts @100% I am Zooming in as the start point so it will zoom out to the original 100%.which is making the video smaller than the screen.
Any hints on what I am doing wrong.

I'm not sure what you're saying, Ron. Can you post a screen capture of your Motion keyframing?

Well, without sharing a screen shot it is very similar to the video section at the end of the tutorial on keyframes you shared above; where when the zoom occcurs to the people walking on the bridge the entire screen shrinks inside the total frame with black boundry around the zoom. The whole video portion shrinks and does not fill the whole screen. I would like it to fill the whole frame.

I'm sorry, Ron. I still don't know what you're describing.

That is a crop. Not a zoom, of course.

Ok, how do I zoom out in a video that is at 100% scale?
