Zooming within Clips

Suse is on a distinguished road

I've just upgraded to Final Cut Express 4 and am finding the learning curve a bit steep...

I have my clips in the time line, but i can't work out how to change one of the clips, so that there is zooming over the course of the clip. Its about 20 secs long, and I want to zoom in on the face as the clip progresses.

All I've found on hunting the net and books is the zoom tool, which is just for viewing things within the browser. Its not for altering a clip.

I have Brenneis' book 'Final Cut Express 4' and can't find anything on this. Is it the correct term I'm missing - is this under "scaling"?

I'm lost - help!

Online tutorials can be very good and directed at such exacting questions. For instance, How to do a Pan and Scan in FCP at the LA Final Cut Pro User Group site. They have many tutorials that should also be applicable to Final Cut Express.

CameraTime - Time lapse photography for novice and advanced users.

When asking questions, post the version of your software. You'll receive better answers.

Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.
