one of the most important effects in any visual presentation involving still images is the Ken Burns effect? why doesn't Lightroom have that? and when will it get it?

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Lightroom slideshow Ken Burns effect limitations - need more features.

Lightroom finally implemented a Ken Burns effect in slideshow presentations but it is so limited that it is essentially useless

what we need is a fully customizable Ken Burns effect that allows for:

- selection of start and end points and start and end frame sizes as well as transition speed selection
- would be great if different start and end frames could also have customizable shapes
- and/or implement a masking capability where, for instance you could have the effect of zooming in on a face in a group and encircling it with a vignette to ensure focus of attention on that face
- in fact would be great if could fade in/out the vignette and make it independent of the Ken Burns effect so you could simply selectively and gradually darken the undesired area and/or brighten the desired area without changing the frame size i.e. zooming in

Aperture has such superior Ken Burns effect that it seems a shame Lightroom can't, after all these years, come close to those capabilities

the Ken Burns effect is an absolutely essential feature for any serious slide shows
