Ken Burns effect

The Ken Burns effect is a popular name for a type of panning and zooming effect used in video production from still imagery.

The name derives from extensive use of the technique by American documentary Director Ken Burns. The use of the technique predates his use of it, but his name has become associated with the effect in much the same way as Alfred Hitchcock is associated with the Hitchcock zoom.

Filmmaking technique, named “The Ken Burns Effect”
