    How do I get smooth constant motion with Pan and Zoom?

    Please help me understand the Pan and Zoom effect - I need to slowly zoom a picture without any easing of the start and end motion so that I can apply a dissolve between the two clips. I've now gone through all the settings but there is still an Ease In and Ease Out effect to the motion at the start and end of the clip once it is rendered. In After Effects I used to just set a start and end keyframe for size and render, and then dissolve between the clips in MC to get the required effect. Due to time constraints I'd prefer not to have to send this to AE now. Can anyone help me with the correct settings? I've got In and Out Velocity and Path set to Linear. What should I do to get an immediate and constant zoom without easing?

    Using MC 5.0.3 Win7 Pro 64bit

    Hi,

    Under Velocity where it says In: Ease In and Out: Ease Out there are drop down menus just to the left of those parameters where you can change it to constant or linear (I'm not in front of a machine, so I'm not certain of the choices, but that's definitely where they are).

    For pan and zoom it is much better than AE becasue you don't need to render and import, it's just done in the timeline. If you want to rotate you are SOL though.

    Need Rotation then change gear and use BCC's Pan and Zoom or Avid FX and your luck returns whilst remaining in Avid.

    BCC's Pan and Zoom is IMHO a far better choice.  I believe once you try it you will never go back.
