1 Import video files to zoom

There are two ways to import video files to zoom. Option 1 is to click "Import" on the primary windows and select files from your computer. Option 2 is to directly drag and drop files to the User's Album. Then, you'll see your videos on the screen. Any further editing won't change your original files.

2 Zoom in videos

Next, drag videos from the User's Album to the video track on Timeline and double click the video. You'll find a "Crop" button in the middle of screen. Click it to open the editing window to zoom in videos by cropping unnecessary part.

You'll see a 2-window dialog: on the left is the preview windows of original video; on the right, it's the video after zooming in. You can move and resize the marquee to decide how to zoom in on video.

To help you zoom in video quickly and easily, there are 3 options at the bottom: manually select zoom in area, keep the zoom in area in 16:9 or 4:3 aspect radio. Note that you should select a corresponding aspect radio when exporting if you have chosen a radio here. Otherwise, black bar will be added. For example, you've zoomed in on video to 16:9, so you need to choose a Resolution in "Advanced settings" like 480*272 or 1280*720 (1.78:1).

3 Zoom-in video creation

Always preview your video before output your video. When the preview is good, click "Create" and a dialog as below will appear. Here you can export video in any popular formats on the local computer by choosing "Format". If you want to play video creation on iPod, iPhone, iPad, click "Device" and select the thumbnail of your devices. You can also directly upload your zoom-in videos to YouTube or burn to DVD discs for playing on TV using a DVD Player.

Zoom in on video tips:

1. iPhone doesn't come with the optical zoom feature. So you can't natively zoom in / zoom out iPhone video. However, with the help with application like Video Zoom, you can effortlessly zoom in iPhone 4 video, iPhone 4S video, iPhone 3GS video, etc. As described in this article, you can import iPhone 4 video to Wondershare Filmora (originally Wondershare Video Editor) and zoom in video at your pleasure.

2. Make sure the aspect ratio of the zoom-in video is the same with that of the selected output format.

3. Note that the quality of zoom-in video depends on the chosen output format to some extent. For example, you have selected small dimensions, but output as large dimensions of video, the quality would not be good. In such case, smaller output dimensions are recommended.

okay but how do you zoom out? As in, Get the footage to be surrounded by black or another color or whatever. The pip editor does basic things but its not customizable as you're stuck with the presets, anyway to do this kind of thing manually?

It's only available for elements and stuff like that not actual video zooming animation.

May I know which version of Filmora you are using? Since I do not see the Zoom2 zoom3 like you said.... (neither the advanced edit...) I'm using version 6.0.3 on Win based machine

This is a motion method that works for slow zooming in, such as a vlog reaction video shot or zoom into a graphic https://youtu.be/Lz_SLK9XO2s

What about the zoom in MOTION? (This is a zoomed in function WITHOUT the motion). Any plans on implementing the zoom in motion function in Filmora? It´s a big drawback Filmora lacking that feature and it´s a reason I´m starting to look for substitutes to Filmora (wich elsewise is a nice and userfriendly film editor).
