Question Zoom out/in effect...how?

Hey folks,

First post here so hello all.

I just finished watching a pretty awesome BBC promo shot in Hong Kong. I understand how the hyper lapses are achieved but I'm trying to get how they managed the zoom effect (e.g boat to the crowd, into the taxi etc.). I've seen it on a few films now.



There's also a more basic version on this -

Is this an in-camera trick with combined transition, is it cgi... phew my head hurts.

Look forward to your thoughts and interpretations!

Personally I don't like this type of effect, but it's a transition. Some call it a Zoom blur transition. You either do it in After Effects (There are tuts on youtube) or pick up an addon pack that includes this transition effect so you can drag and drop it on to your timeline. If it helps, it's included with Sapphire. A little pricey, but well worth it.

Agreed, it's a bit extreme and overused. But effective when used with a purpose.

Here's a tutorial for anyone that wants to learn more

I don't know if this is what they did, but some of those scenes can be done with a drone.

In that case you would simply pull into, or pull out of whatever scene over some slow steady flight path and then just speed up the middle portion to simulate a zoom.

Sounds right.

A lot of that on the boat clip/people however was just clever editing mixed with some 3D objects.
