Dolly Zoom Effect in After Effects


Sometimes referred to as the “vertigo effect,” the Dolly Zoom is a classic Hollywood cinematic technique. It was first popularized by Alfred Hitchcock’s ‘Psycho’ and Steven Spielberg in ‘Jaws.’ Typically this effect requires a zoom lens, a lengthy slider, and precise camera operating skills. In this video, UglyMcgregor shows us how to pull off the Dolly Zoom without using a zoom lens, and instead with Adobe After Effect’s app. This is one of those rare filmmaking/postproduction tutorials that is concise, well-produced, and achievable. Enjoy!
