Chapter 3. Managing Footage > Magnification and Safe Zones

Magnification and Safe Zones

Often, you want to magnify your view of the footage to closely examine a detail of the image. Other times, viewing footage at 100% scale takes up too much screen space, and you want to reduce the magnification. You can change the magnification ratio to whatever suits your needs. Of course, this is for viewing purposes only; the actual scale of the footage doesn't change.

To change the magnification of the Footage or Composition window:

In the Footage window, press and hold the magnification ratio pop-up menu to choose a magnification from the menu (Figure 3.62).

Figure 3.62. Choose a magnification from the pop-up menu.


When you release the mouse button, the Footage window uses the magnification ratio you selected (Figure 3.63).
