Creating Motion from a Still Image in SynthEyes

September 5, 2023

You can use the image preprocessor to create motion from stills, the “Ken Burns” effect. This tutorial shows a simple example of that. Doing it in SynthEyes is different than doing a 2D image zoom and pan, because, with the proper lens field of view, it is recalculating the correct perspective shift, as if the camera was on a tripod, instead of the 2-D image-being-slid-around look.
