Using Zoom Effects in Music Tutorial Videos with the Movavi Video Editor


When you’re creating music tutorials to show people how to play a certain instrument, one of the effects that is going to prove extremely useful is the ‘zoom’ effect. Properly used, you can put it to work to show close-ups of the actions you’re performing to play the instrument and then zoom back out to continue the tutorial.

While you may not feel familiar enough with video editing to pull off this sort of special effect, the Movavi Video Editor will simplify the process. When you use it, all you need to do is:

  1. Load the video into the software by clicking ‘Add Media Files’ and selecting it.
  2. Open the ‘Tools’ tab, expand the ‘Zoom’ list and select ‘Zoom-in-out’.
  3. In the ‘Preview Window’, adjust the grey frame that will appear to select the area that you want to zoom into, and click ‘Apply’ when you’re satisfied.
  4. Save your video by clicking ‘Export’.
