Zooming in on a specific section of video

Hello.

What I am trying to accomplish:

Have video setup in After Effects

pick a section of the video

Zoom in on a specific area

let play for a few seconds

take the video back to normal position

The problem I am having is I can't figure out how to select the specific area to zoom in on
I've tried "Mask" but that's not doing what I thought it would do.
When I try using anchor points for scale, it's only zooming in to the middle of the video.
How do I get it to select let's say the bottom left corner of the video to zoom in on?

No offense, but you seriously need to brush up on the basics and read the online help. Here's just some basic guidance:

  • The zoom itself would simply be a duplicate of the layer.
  • The zoom region itself would either be the scaling layer in an otherwise static pre-composition or a technique involving a track matte.
  • The anchor point of a layer can be set however you want.

Again, you need to read the help. All the keywords are in my post. Your journey begins here:

"No offence" Mylenium, but what a condescending tone to take with someone asking for help. Brushing up on the basics and reading the online help is precisely what this user was doing by asking the question. Your choice of words in your response comes across as judgemental.
