Virtix has unleashed Virtix Pan and Scan, a collection of ten special effects for Apple's popular entry-level video-editing solution, iMovie 2.1.1 for Mac OS X.

The effects let editors move back and forth between portions of a video clip. Effectively, this means that simulated scans can be created – the shot zooms into one portion of the footage, and moves to another.

Effects have a numeric interface – so pans on split clips can be matched using the Pan Start and Pan End effects. Each pan also integrates motion-blur.

The collection contains two versions of each effect – one for video clips, and one for still images. They include: Pan, Pan Gentle, Pan Swish, Pan Start and Pan End.

The solution is available now, costing $19.99.
