Zoom in/out feature in Movie mode?

Hi,

I'm evaluating TW3. 

I can't seem to find the feature that allows one to zoom in/out of a scene while creating the tour. This is a feature that I've always liked in TW.  It allows one to focus on a point in the scene and highlight that item.  It also makes for a dramatic start or end for a scene. 

This feature was in TW1.3.  Actually, there is a control panel right on the movie editing screen in TW1.3.  Where is this in TW3?

Your help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
eagle

You should go into "Movie Rec Mode" on the scene you wish to add "Walkthrough Effect" and "after" creating your own movie track. Choose to add a frame somewhere along the time line (Right Mouse Click - Add Frame). Use the movie controls within the lower corner of the viewer to zoom, pan or what ever it is you want it to do. Move further along to the time line to zoom back or whatever and add another frame.

Have a quick play you will understand it in knowtime.

Regards, Smooth

Got it!  Not necessarily intuitive for a TW1.3 user.  :)

You can zoom on a still image only if the image is larger than the viewer window and you have chosen "Actual Size" and not limited the view to "Best Fit".

You set the zoom levels in the same way you would the panorama images (but you must add the still image to "your" movie track).

You are right, The 3.0 work space is a completely new planet when compared to version 1.3
