HOW TO: Zoom from the Feet to the Head (Full Body)


#1

Let’s use:
EXT. ISLAND BEACH - DAY
@KIKI spot 1.095 78 124 AND KIKI faces right

(I made my character smaller because I want to have a full body zoom, you can make it from default position as well although you won’t see their feet)

Click here if you don’t know how to do it:
Spot Directing (Moving Characters Around)

More about zoom:
Zoom Directing (The Art of the Zoom Made Easy)

zoom%20out

Now click on:
Zoom Helper
Switch Tool:
Focus - Focus on the part you want
Zoom - Move around the screen

(You may need some time to get used to using it, but don’t worry, practice, play around and you’ll be master of zoom in no time.)

So what I use first is Focus and I will focus on her feet (it may look off) that’s why you need other Toll (Zoom) to move it to the center of the screen.

zoom%20on%20feet

Copy the spots underneath. This will be your start of.

Now using Zoom Toll I’ll move zoom on her face (I’m keeping the same focus percentage which is 335%)

zoom%20on%20face

Copy the spots.

Now you have to set the time.

@zoom on 43 402 to 335% in S

S- seconds, that’s mean how fast you want your zoom to move from feet to the head. You can use whatever you want.

I used 5 seconds
EXT. ISLAND BEACH - DAY
@KIKI spot 1.095 78 124 AND KIKI faces right
@zoom on 57 14 to 335% in 0
@zoom on 43 402 to 335% in 5

Note: Don’t forget to reset your zoom after, otherwise your scene will be zoomed in.
Using commands:
@zoom reset
or
@zoom on 0 0 to 100% in 0

#18

do you want zoom on both people or just one?


#19

Onee please


#20

so I just checked this scene and your character just stands behind the other character and it’s not even zoomed in in the right place. Can you double check the spot placement for your character?
