New 'Ken Burns Effect' for adding subtle animation to your designs

We've added a new transition type to the Slideshow zone called Pan / Zoom which adds subtle movement to the slide for the entirety of the slide duration. This effect is also known as the Ken Burns Effect as it is used extensively by the filmmaker in his documentaries. Note that this is not technically a 'transition' since the effect is continuously running, the actual transition between slides is a cross-fade.


To use the effect just select Pan / Zoom from the list of available transition types in the Slideshow Zone.
