Does Nero Vision have the Ken Burns pan and zoom effect ?

Ken Burns pan and zoom is a great effect. Does Nero have that effect ?

I have Googled much, looked at this forum and cannot find it thus far.

When I Google it, I do see mention of a Nero product named "Photo Slideshow Deluxe" but cannot find that product.

I have Nero 2015 Platinum and would like for it to have the Ken Burns effect.

Thanks

  • Hi Clark-

    I looked at a Ken Burns pan and zoom video on YouTube and honestly can't tell which part is supposed to be anything special.

    There are at least 20 Pan and Zoom effects in the Nero 2015 Nero Video Effect Pallette. Have you checked them out?

  • iMovie on my iPhone/iPad has Ken Burns pan and zoom, so I will often use iMovie for quick videos simply because of that.

    The iMovie effect allows the user to set the start view and the end view. And also set the zoom amount for either the start or end positions. That is a great way to view a photo within a photo-video, with the gradual pan/zoom from one specified part of the photo to another.

    I have tried Nero's pan/zoom. Yes, they are somewhat useful at times. But, the user cannot specify start/stop positions for the pan. And cannot set the amount of zoom. Nero's positions are fixed for each effect. Frankly, the Nero arbitrary fixed points and zoom amounts are not ones I've found that I need.

  • Hi Clark-

    Sorry to take so long to get back to you but the forum has been super busy the last 3 or 4 days.

    If you put a zoom effect on the Master Effects track, you can position it where you want it and you can also adjust its duration by grabbing an end of it with your mouse and dragging. You can also do this if you add the effect on top of the video but it's easier to see when you put it on the Master Effects track.

    For some reason, I thought you could adjust the zoom level but I can't find it.

    You also might try the Nero PIP for showing a reduced size of the same photo within the photo. You can adjust it's size.

  • Wither,

    Thanks... I did try putting the effect on the Masters Effect track. You are right. That does help to see what's going on. But, also, I still cannot position the point on a photo where I would like for the Pan (or Zoom) to begin, and where I would like for that effect to end.

    Unless I'm missing something.

    For a Pan/Zoom effect, Nero starts on a photo where it wants to start, and end where it wants to end. Yes, I do realize that there are Nero effects that are pre-programmed to start/end at various places. But I was hoping to be able to set my own points, like in iMovie.

    Thanks !!!

  • You can use the positioning line to align the effect where you want it to start. You can then adjust it's duration to where it's supposed to stop. Note that it would be easiest to zoom into the time line when doing the positioning.

    You can also add more than one effect together. For instance, you might add the zoom in and zoom out back to back.

    I don't use iMovies but I'll take your word for it that it's easier.

    Due to the high volume traffic (sound familiar :)), I don't have time to try things. Omega Tester had more time but he longer comes into the forum.

  • Wither,

    Thanks again. Been pretty hectic myself.

    The "Master Effects" track does help. I can set the time at which I would like a Pan and Zoom effect to start, and can set the duration/end. I cannot set the point in the image itself, where I wish the transition effect to begin.

    I see that I can insert one transition onto the Master Effects track, and one directly on the video track. In that manner, I do get more flexibility in the transitions, if not directly setting on the photo where they begin and end.

  • Hi Clark-

    The transition and pan and zoom effects are different animals, as you know, so I'm hoping your reference to a transition means just that.

    After you add your transition, grab the left hand edge of it and move it to the left to adjust where it starts. Ditto for the end point. You will likely have to zoom the timeline to be able to do that.

  • Yes...

    Also, yes, I know how to position the start/end points on the timeline.

    But I cannot position to the point on the image itself where I would like for the transition to begin and end. That would require a combination of zoom (first) and pan (next).

  • Clark:

    Have you tried using keyframes on the "position" and "scale" ?

  • No, I had not tried that. But, that was a good suggestion. So, I did try it.

    The trick would be to have both scale and position work simultaneously, so that the start point would be the position where one wants it, and scaled to fill the window. And etc for the end point.

    When I did that, it seemed to me that one of those two would revert back to default, when I had the other one working right. I could not get both working, with the settings I desire, at the same time.

    I will admit that I am rushed right now, so maybe I made a mistake. I have 6 things I am supposed to be doing right now. And I'm hungry... :-)

  • I think we're talking about two different things, which I tried to clarify. A transition is added between adjoining photos or videos. For instance, a fade in or fade out.
