4 Tips on How to zoom in/out on After Effects
1.Planned and Purposeful Zooming
The main objective here when zooming in is to get a grasp on the viewer and create intimacy with the video. Whereas when zooming out more detail is exposed. There should be proper attention paid towards the intention of zooming and over zooming should be avoided at all costs.
Try to play around with the pan and zoom motion, do not allow your moves to be monotonous throughout. Be diverse.
3.Careful with the Speed
You do not want to move in or out too fast or too slow, that could easily ruin the entire effect. Timing and speed both matter immensely for this effect to have a meaningful impact.
Avoid hard transitions. When transitioning from one focal point to another be steady and calm and try not to make it sudden but rather meaningful.
