Hi all,

I'm editing gameplay videos in Sony Vegas Pro 12. It's absolutely infuriating how the program handles zooming. Instead of being able to automatically zoom in to a specific place and a specific degree of zoom, it slowly zooms in and then pans over to wherever the next place I want to zoom is. It ruins the effect entirely, as certain events (such as the announcement of a killing spree or the kill feed) disappear before the zoom finds them. Not only that, but I don't want to be zoomed in the whole damn time either! I've looked around for a solution, but haven't found any.

Help would be much appreciated.

EDIT: If anyone else has a suggestion for a different video editor, I'm open to it. I really am at the end of my rope.

Uhhh... This doesn't quite seem like the right place... I have no idea where else this might go, but still... Anyway, as far as I know, Sony Vegas goes by KeyFrames. You could shorten the time it takes to zoom by how close the frames are.
