Step 7: Click on the advanced button present on the screen, and it will open advanced text settings. From there, you can change the text and type any custom text that you want to use in your effect. In this guide, we will use "TUTORIAL" as an example just to show you how things work. Now change the font and select a font that is bolder. Also, change the size of the font and make it 125 or larger. Just make sure that it fits on the screen well. Once you are done with all settings, click on the "OK" button to apply them.zoom-through-effects7

Step 8: Now, Adjust the text to make sure it is in the center and take a snapshot of the text by clicking on the snapshot icon present at the bottom of the preview window.zoom-through-effects8

Step 9. Once you have taken the snapshot, delete both the sample color and the title layers present in the timeline and drag and drop the snapshot in track 2.zoom-through-effects9

Step 10:  Now right-click on the snapshot track, click on the duration, and set the duration according to the video that you want to use for creating zoom through text effect.zoom-through-effects10

Step 11: Now again, right-click on the snapshot track and select Crop and Zoom from the menu. Then select Pan and zoom from the top of the window that will appear on your screen.zoom-through-effects11

Step 12: Click on the center and then drag the center box from one of its corners and make it as small as possible. Once you have shrunk it to the maximum, drag and drop it in the middle of the text and click the OK button, you will see that Pan and zoom effect has been applied to the text.

Step 13:  Now play the track and go to the very end where it stops. Again take a snapshot where the track ends and place the snapshot in track two following the first snapshot on which we already applied the Pan and zoom effect.zoom-through-effects13

Step 14: Now right-click on the second snapshot, click on duration, and adjust the duration of this snapshot also.zoom-through-effects14

Step 15: Now repeat the 11th step again for this snapshot.zoom-through-effects15

Then click on the middle section and adjust it on the white portion of the text and make sure it isn't on the black portion. Once you are done with the adjustments, click the OK button.zoom-through-effects16
