I’ve seen people ask about curving zooms and it never seemed like there was a good answer for it. It wasn’t a problem I really came across often while writing. Until last night.
I was writing a scene where it was zoomed in at the start and I wanted it to slowly zoom out to normal while I had the narrator bubble going. At first I couldn’t figure it out and after some messing around with it I found a fix!
So for example, let’s say my first zoom is this.
&zoom on 200 500 to 200% in 0
Now naturally to zoom out slowly I wanted to try this, but it curves as it zooms out.
&zoom on 0 0 to 100% in 10
So the solution is to use the same numbers as your first zoom and only change the % to 100.
Non curving zoom.
&zoom on 200 500 to 100% in 10
I assume this works while zooming in too, just do the 100% zoom first and then your actual zoom after. I haven’t tested that out thought.
