Infinte Zoom : Examples, Tutorials, and Plug-ins

An infinite zoom is an effect that creates a seemingly endless camera zoom. For example, the camera can pan into a section of photos or art, someone’s eye, a water droplet, or whatever else, and it just keeps going!


THX Deep Note Trailer in 4K

Last year Andrew Kramer directed the THX Deep Note Trailer in 4K and it features a spectacular unending zoom.

Röyksopp – Eple

Perhaps one of my favorite examples of the inexhaustable zoom. One of the comments on the post is about the song being called “Apple”, yet it’s full of windows. Haha. This song is now over a decade old, and the YouTube video shows that, but it’s still a creative video. They are both zooming in or out and panning.
