Ken Burns problem

Discussion in 'Amateur Video Production' started by Andrew Osyany, Jan 23, 2006.

  1. I am using Premiere Elements 2.

    In doing Ken Burns zoom-ins on pictures, I find that the picture is
    degraded, from the initial operation, right on to the final zoom-in.
    The problem is not lack of pixels, because even when I zoom in all the
    way the area contains more than 720x480. In fact, I've put a cropped
    picture of an even smaller area next to the zoom-in, and the zoom-in is
    not sharp, but the cropped picture is.

    Is this a problem only with Premiere Pro? And is there a way around it?
    It's rather tedious to put in a start-up and final picture,
    book-ending the Ken Burns sequence.

    Andrew Osyany seemed to utter in
    I use PPro, not Elements, but are the images being imported
    at full resolution? Check for a setting that might be
    down sizing all images to 720x480. I've done lots of zooming
    and panning in PPro and never see the image degrade.

    If you are going to refer to pan/scan/push in moves as "Ken Burns" zoom ins
    then you need more help than we can give here.

    I find that the picture is

    It's not a problem at all with Premiere Pro. I thought you were using
    Elements. They're not the same.

    A lot of people use the term "Ken Burns Effect" for something than Ken
    Burns did not originate. Just like lot of people are "filming" with
    their video cameras, the terms get mangled. I would not be surprised if
    the application the OP is using also refers to it as "Ken Burns", so
    that is what he is asking about.

    I don't kmow if Burns is flattered or annoyed, but it beats having your
    name attached to a horid disease.
