    Media Composer Pan & Zoom and Resize effect

    This may be a dumb question but is there a way to slow the speed of zooms in the Pan and Zoom effect and also when you use resize? Also which filter seems to work the best for smooth movement.

    The speed of the zoom is dependant an how much you zoom and over what time period you take to make that change.

    I use resize for video frames and possibly graphics that are originally the same size as my video frame

    Pan and Zoom has Ease In and Ease Out options for keyframes allowing you to adjust the motion of the zooms to suit your requirement.

    Re: Media Composer Pan & Zoom and Resize effect

    I am also having issues with Avid Pan and Zoom. Basically the images look soft. Even if I select the Ultra High Filter setting. I am getting better results importing the image and using a resize effect. I read somewhere that the original image needs to be 72dpi, so I tried that but it made no discernable difference. Anyone have any ideas?

    I read that to, but there is no conceivable (to me) reason why this should be. From those threads it appeared that the issue was mostly experienced by Mac users. P&Z in Mac I think still uses the Quicktime Codec for some graphic types, where as the PC version dumped QT for P&Z with MC 6 (64 bit)

    What pixel size are your original files? What Resolution is your Project?
    What file format are the original files?
    When you render the P&Z in the timeline do you see better quality? (Some versions had all unrendered P&Z's show in draft quality regardless of the settings.)

    FWIW predominantly on PC's here and I have never seen your issue in any version of Avid since P&Z was first introduced.
