Did you try animating the crop function?

can you elaborate 'wobbly'?

I'm asking, because an 'unsteady' still could have other causes than unprecise key-framing.

some textures, scan-lines, structures can create, based upon a sort-of moiré, create 'wobble' too ...

just for consideration ......

Karsten,

AT TIMES WHEN MOVING IN ON THE SUBJECT, THE SUBJECT SEEMS TO MOVE AROUND A FIXED POINT. IT GIVES THE EFFECT OF SPIRALING IN ON THE SUBJECT. AT OTHER TIMES IT SEEMS TO BOUNCE UP A BIT, BUT I THINK SELECTING LINEAR INTERPOLATION FIXED THAT.

Tom,

I GAVE THE CROP FUNCTION A LITTLE TIME BUT I BUMPED AGAINST A PROBLEM I DIDN'T WANT TO DEAL WITH RIGHT AWAY.  I'M PLANNING ON DEALING WITH THAT  TONIGHT. I'M IN AN EVALUATION PHASE WITH NLEs AND THE THOUGHT OF GOING TO A WORK AROUND FOR SOMETHING AS BASIC AS PAN AND ZOOM DOESN'T GIVE ME A WARM COMFY FEELING.

I just googled the original pan and zoom question and found 2 very interesting facts.  This problem goes back at least 5 years in the FCP world. Second, the old threads I've found seem to indicate Motion is a viable solution.

Merry Christmas,
