Help with pan effect for videos.

I want to learn how to do a slow pan for a still video. Let's pretend you have a camera set up on a tripod and you want the screen to move and pan. Is there an effect that does it better than the crop/zoom tool?


Thanks

I would use the Motion tab in the PIP designer. Works great for still photos.

You can set any path you want to make the photo move in just about any direction.

You are limited by the size of the photo for how much you can move the photo within the frame.

Here is a old tutorial on using Key Frames and PIP Motion. The basics still apply.

I struggled to find a video that would explain how to apply a Pan Effect to a video. The totorial videos I saw played too fast for me to follow. Eventually I figured out a way to do it on my own. There are probably better approaches but this one worked fairly well. Since it's inevitable that I'll forget how I did it, I created my own video. Maybe folks will find it helpful.
