I used the Pan and Zoom on a video just now and it works from adding the keyframes in the places I want but I notice it does a gradual zooming in or out

Can someone let me know how to do this where it quickly goes to the zoom just like pressing 2x on your cell phone and then pressing 1x to instantly go back to the wider view

The gradual thing is good but there many times where you want it to go to that look instantly

Tools like Crop/Zoom/Pan are good for quick & easy edits but you can't place keyframes close enough together to make a drastic shift.

For full control you need to make the edits by hand. Double click on the clip and place Scale and Position keyframes at the last full-size frame. Bump the playhead 1 frame to the right and adjust the Height/Width slider or type in "2" then drag the clip if needed to center the desired area.

During playback, the clip will immediately zoom in.

thanks for the info; it works great that way

I then will have to put in another key frame for when I want to return to the normal width

Yes. I often "bookend" zooms like this in the PiP Designer and the Crop/Zoom/Pan tool by placing a second full scale keyframe at the very end of the clip. That way I can make as many changes as I want in the middle and still have a normal size and position when the clip ends.
