How the pan-zoom works

Great job Roel. Some fantastic images.


Do you get to choose the zooming action? or is it random?

You get to choose it.

For every image, you can determine a crop as start-point and another crop as end-point.

The software evolves the image between those two in the time allotted to the photo (and taking into account transition to the next.

For this first effort, I just stayed with 5 seconds for every images (which accounts for the difference in speed of zooming) and had all my transitions as cross-fade.  For a next effort, I should of course finetune that : give some images more time (especially when there is a long way to zoom or pan).  And maybe also no crossfading for every transition, but some clean cuts too.

As for the zooming : the deliberate choice I made was to zoom in on every 1-3-5-7-etc image and to zoom out on every 2-4-6-8-etc image.  Panning gets added to the zoom, when the middle point of the start- and end-crop are different (which is almost always, but sometimes more obvious than other times).

I have a lot to learn.

Jeff, thanks for your input and an interesting question.
