Chapter 3. Managing Footage > Magnification and Safe Zones

Magnification and Safe Zones

Sometimes, you'll want to magnify your footage view so that you can closely examine a detail of the image. Other times, you'll want to reduce magnification because viewing footage at 100 percent scale takes up too much screen space. After Effects lets you change the magnification ratio to suit your needs. However, keep in mind that this is for viewing purposes only: The actual scale of the footage doesn't change. You may be surprised to discover that no matter how much you magnify the image in the Footage window, scroll bars don't appear. To view different parts of a magnified image, use the Hand tool instead.
