What is Point Zoom in ScreenFlow?

Point Zoom in ScreenFlow is a feature that allows users to focus on a specific area of the screen during a video recording or editing process. This is particularly useful when you want to highlight or draw attention to a particular detail in your video.

When you use the Point Zoom feature, you can select a point on your screen and then zoom in on it. This can be done in real time during a recording, or afterwards during the editing process. The zoom level can be adjusted to suit your needs, and you can also choose to pan from one point to another for a smooth, professional-looking video. This feature is a great tool for creating tutorials, presentations, or any video where you need to focus on specific details.

How to adjust the point zoom in ScreenFlow?

To adjust the point zoom in ScreenFlow, you first need to select the clip you want to zoom in on. Once the clip is selected, go to the video properties tab on the right side of the screen. Here, you will find the scale option which allows you to adjust the zoom level of your clip.

To adjust the point of zoom, you need to manipulate the position parameters. You can either manually input the X and Y coordinates or click and drag the image in the preview window to your desired location. Remember, the point of zoom will be the center of the screen. So, adjust the position parameters accordingly.

Remember to use keyframes to control the timing and speed of the zoom. You can add a keyframe at the start of where you want the zoom to begin, and another at the end. Adjust the scale and position parameters at each keyframe to control the zoom effect.
