I want to learn how to make the effect that is presented in the video from 0:29 to 0:31, that is, cursor tracking and zoom.

1 Answer 1


Here is how I would do it:

  • Track the cursor in After-Effects (using the tracking-panel)
  • Apply the movement to a Null-Object
  • Create a camera
  • Parent the camera to the Null
  • Change the focal length in the camera to achieve the zoom

Now your camera should follow the cursor.
