Bring pan and crop tool to hitfilm editor section. So users zoom in and zoom in a clip and keyframe it. And also users can add bars. Users can create Fake camera movements. So movie can be more cinematic. Vegas pro users are taking advantage of this feature.

what your opinion about it. I think its a good idea.....

    @suhailabdulrahman I've moved your thread out of feature requests to Post Production techniques because Hitfilm already does what you want. Twice.

    In Vegas you select a specific Pan/Crop menu. This is pretty convenient, but it's just resizing and repositioning your media.

    In Hitfilm you can resize and reposition your media by selecting it on the Timeline and using the Scale and Position properties to manually scale and zoom to reframe.

    Or, you can use the existing Crop & Pan tool in the Effects Panel.

    Hello there! Hitfilm Express does include a Crop, Pan and Zoom effect (as Triem23 mentioned above) and I made a tutorial a while back showing how to use the Crap, Pan and Zoom effect:

    Plus, you can easily do Crop by keframing masks. Pan & Zoom by keframing the Scale and X/Y channels. I find this sometimes easier than using the Crop/Pan & Zoom tool.
