Thread: Vegas Pro 8 - Headshot "Zoom"

    Default Vegas Pro 8 - Headshot "Zoom"

    Hello everyone.

    I am trying to recreate the technique used in the introduction of the TV show 24 when all the main characters are named. For the uninitiated, it's a technique where a freeze frame of the character is shown, followed by a "zoom in"/focusing with a black envelope that starts to expand from the edge of the screen until the headshot is captured. I've only got the freeze frame down so far.

    I thought I could do it with either Pan/Crop or Track Motion, but I haven't been able to figure out. If someone has any insight, that would be extremely useful. I wanted to spoof this part for a potential movie that I'm making.

    Thanks in advance.

    Can you show me a video of what you mean. I've never watched the show and I'm kinda lost.

    Here is a link that's simulates what I want to do.



    The effect I want to simulate happens around 1:12 in the video.

    If anyone can figure this out, that would be great.

    Ah, so you can do it with Track Motion after all. I'll take a look at the link, thanks.
