Keyframes in layout would be the best way in Edius or for that matter an Imaginate type effect in Edius is even better...kinda like "motion effect" in PP that has been around for years..
    For those of us who can not access "Imaginate" (NOT AVAILABLE or Not for sale here) Boris RED handles panning and zooming on large files excellently preserving sharpness right into and past the pixel front, any shimmering can be eliminated by using the 1:2:1 pull down, file can be output in any codec on the computer even with transparent alpha in Canopus HQ.
    Anyone who may have an old copy of Media Studio Pro lying around this also works well for handling graphics but not stable enough for any serious editing.

    when you right click the still in Edius and go to properties, you can see the dimension

    also in Photoshop, a quick way to see dimensions and change them is to right click the blue image header

    Guess I have to use Imaginate now.
    Big .jpg is a waste in 3dPiP. It just gets crushed and eats CPU.

    Lucky for us, Imaginate hoops are now tiny. (or depending on your point ov view, huge)

    started a topic 3d PnP with PSD files

    3d PnP with PSD files

    I am trying to do a simple pan zoom right on the time line with 3D PnP. When I put a PSD on the timeline and drop the 3dPnP keyer on it, the keyer window locks up after a few small tweaks within the info window.

    If I convert the image to a jpg all is good. Any reason it is locking up on psd files?

    I know I could use Imaginate but the pan zoom I am doing is very subtle and I don't feel like jumping through the hoops between apps.
