I'm editing gameplay videos in Sony Vegas Pro 12. It's absolutely infuriating how the program handles zooming. Instead of being able to automatically zoom in to a specific place and a specific degree of zoom, it slowly zooms in and then pans over to wherever the next place I want to zoom is. It ruins the effect entirely, as certain events (such as the announcement of a killing spree or the kill feed) disappear before the zoom finds them. Not only that, but I don't want to be zoomed in the whole damn time either! I've looked around for a solution, but haven't found any.
Help would be much appreciated.
EDIT: If anyone else has a suggestion for a different video editor, I'm open to it. I really am at the end of my rope.
