Applying a Zoom-In Effect Using Movavi Video Editor

Sometimes certain details in your video may be too small to make out, or not noticeable enough that viewers focus on them. If that’s the case then ‘zooming in’ on the area could help, as it will magnify important elements and ensure that viewers immediately are drawn to them.


Although applying a zoom-in effect may sound tricky, Movavi Video Editor helps simplify it to a large degree. In fact if you want to start applying the effect right now you can go ahead and launch the editor then select the ‘Create project in full feature mode’ option in the welcome window.

The first thing you’ll want to do once the editor is open is add the video that you want to edit by clicking on the ‘Add Media Files’ button and selecting it. The video will then appear in Movavi Video Editor’s ‘Timeline’ and you can click on it to select it then click on the ‘More’ tab on the sidebar and select ‘Pan and Zoom’.

Among the ‘Pan and Zoom’ tools you’ll see several choices, but the one that you need is the ‘Zoom in’ option. All you need to do is select it then click ‘Add’, then adjust the orange frame in the ‘Preview’ window to let Movavi Video Editor know which part of the video you want to zoom in on.


On the ‘Timeline’ you should see an arrow with a start and end point that denotes the zoom-in effect that you’ve applied. If you want you can adjust its duration, or edit any of the key frames. Keep in mind that you can apply as many zoom-in effects as you want using Movavi Video Editor, or could use a zoom-out effect to reverse the process.

For more details you can head over to, or you could try out some of the other features in Movavi Video Editor. It can help you to enhance the quality of your videos, cut and join video segments, add audio tracks, apply filters, insert text, include transitions, and more.

After you’re done just click on the ‘Export’ button to save the video in any format you choose, or use one of the presets that are available. That is really all it takes to apply a zoom-in effect to any video using Movavi Video Editor, and if you try out some of the other features you’ll see there’s lots more you can do with it too
