Hello,

I wonder whether VisionLab studio should feature a "video pan and zoom" filter. It would be nice if we could make a "shake" effect or simply make our scene look more action-like immediately while working with our composition. Would you agree with me? ;p

1. Oeyvind made this preset, maybe what you're talking about?
2. Otherwise it's possible with the 'Animation' controls in the timeline with the video clip/media.

There isn't really a way to make a filter for this that would be simpler than the existing animation controls. They are about as simple as you can possibly get: Scale the video up to give yourself room to move it about, and drag it wherever you want on any given frame.

I do this to achieve this effect, but it makes me move other composition elements like lightsabers to move around too which is quite problematic ;p. I simply render my composition and later "shake" it, but my point was whether it could be done without rendering and later "shaking" it but just in the composition step.

Wouldn't it be better if the grade objects included animation controls? Then you could apply it over multiple layers and the lightsaber would move with the background.
