Add Zoom-n-Pan Effects - Screen Recorder DemoCreator
You may be recording large dimensions like full screen but only want to produce the demo movie at smaller dimensions (640 by 480 or smaller like 320 by 240) to make it viewable in smaller players. In that case, the demo would not be viewable. Now with the zoom and pan features provided from screen recorder DemoCreator, you can improve viewing when generating the demo movie at dimensions smaller than the source window. And, you can focus on specific details like typing and cursor movements and make your point clearly.
In this tutorial, we are going to learn how to:
• Add Zoom objects
• Change the Zoom Scale
• Change the Zoom Position
• Change the Zoom Duration
• Achieve the panning effect
Add & Edit Zoom Objects to Slides
- Locate your cursor on the timeline to position the key frames to add zoom objects.
- Click the Zoom object and you will see the red rectangle in edit scence instantly. The rectangle area is the area you mean to zoom in for specific details.
- Adjust the zoom area/zoom scale. The zoom scale indicates the percentage of the selected area to zoom in or zoom out in the video. You can see the zoom scale parameter of the zoom object in the time line.
- Adjust the Duration towards slower to set the zoom speed.
- Add another zoom object of 100% zoom scale to end the zooming in status. The zoom object will be applied to the current slide and all the following slides by default, so if you want the slides after these key frame to play without zooming in effect, you can add another zoom object of 100% zoom scale to end the zooming in status.
Or, resize and position the rectangle by draging the direction indicator or sides to adjust the zoom area/zoom scale.
Or, double-click the zoom object (sides or compass) then you can enter the zoom scale parameter/width and height to resize the zoom area.
When publishing your demo, you can change the publish dimension of the output movie. If you want the zoom in effect as clear as the original recording, you may set the output dimensions by zoom scale equals one (e.g. output dimensions 80% of the original recording by zoom scale 125% equals one).
Achieve panning effect
A Pan effect moves around the demo movie from side-to-side or up and down. And it can work with zoom effect when the zoom key frames are not in the same area and different sizes.
- Repeat the five steps above to add two zoom objects.
- Change the zoom area or zoom size of the second zoom objects.
- Preview the slides, you will see it pans smoothly from the first zoom area to the second one.
