Zoom & Pan

A ‘Pan’ is when the camera moves right and left (i.e. between two subjects) while filming and a ‘Zoom’ is when the camera either moves closer to one part of the frame or seems to through the use of a zoom lens (i.e. for a close up on a character’s face). These effects, or any other camera movements, can be simulated in DemoCreator using the Pan and Zoom feature.

  • Click and drag the Pan & Zoom effect to the clip, until there appears a green arrow shows successfully added.
