I have Sony Vegas 9, and I am quite new to it.
I was wondering if anyone can please help me to find out how to make this effect. Specifically I mean the following: say the video is going, normally, then I want it to pause, so that there would be just one still shot for a few seconds, and then it would resume again. Secondly, I was wondering if it is also possible to zoom in to a certain area of the still shot, hold it there for a few seconds, then zoom back and resume. This effect was very popular in late 60's and ealry 70's documentaries. Say there is a group of people walking on the street, then the film pauses, and one of the people is being zoomed at. Please don't understand me wrong, it is not an actual zoom of the camera when it was filmed, but it is a zoom at the still image (you can usually see the grain bigger).
