Did you try animating the crop function?

… It gets wobbly in the middle section where it should be holding steady. …
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 ......

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.
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.
