Are you looking to zoom in on your video while editing in Capcut? Zooming in can help highlight specific details or add emphasis to certain parts of your video. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to zoom in using Capcut.

Step 1: Import your video

The first step is to import the video you want to edit into Capcut. To do this, simply tap on the import button and select the video from your camera roll.

Step 2: Add the video to the timeline

Once you have imported your video, drag it down to the timeline at the bottom of the screen. This is where you can edit and manipulate your video.

Step 3: Tap on the clip you want to zoom in

Next, tap on the clip you want to zoom in on. This will bring up a menu of options for that clip.

Step 4: Select ‘Zoom’

In the menu options, select ‘Zoom’. This will allow you to zoom in on that specific clip.

Step 5: Pinch and zoom

Now it’s time to actually zoom in. Pinch two fingers together on the screen and drag them apart. This will increase the size of your clip and allow you to zoom in closer.

Step 6: Adjust placement

Once you have zoomed in, you may need to adjust the placement of your clip. Simply drag it around on the screen until it’s positioned where you want it.


  • To zoom back out, pinch two fingers together again.
