Bug Description

 One of the cutests effect for making "still-images" presentations is the Ken Burns effect.

 If I remember correctly, you can simulate it in Openshot with "key frames".

 If would be very nice to add it directly as an "effect", and allow to apply it directly in the Add To Timeline option, this way you could:

- Import a folder of JPG images to the project.
- Select all in the "project files" view.
- Right Button -> Add To Timeline -> N seconds -> Random Ken Burns Effect
- Profit!
- If you want to "modify" any of the "random" kenburns (because you prefer a given zoom or pan in a concrete image) -> right click in the image -> effect properties -> change kenburns effect properties.

 I currently use images + random transitions, but some photo presentations would be better with ken burns and openshot doesn't seem to allow to use that effect easily.

 Please, add this effect :-)


PS: Very happy anyway with Openshot, it's the first time in 15 years under Linux that I can edit my videos in my fav. O.S.

+1 on this, I really miss it a lot. Trying to somehow "simulate" Ken Burns via zooming and offset values is simply awkward. It would be very nice to somehow have sensible "automagic" (random) values and be able to specify the effect manually, say, like by specifying a "start" rectangle and "end" rectangle on the image itself.

We have on openshot qt a true ken burn effect that you could parameters all, and not only for that but for all and independant of the others parameters.
