video editing program that lets you zoom in?

i need a program that will let me zoom a little bit. free would be best but a pay one is not out of the question. also its for vista and im a newbie to video editing so the easier the better.

I don't know if Windows Movie Maker lets you do that or not.

I use Sony Vegas and have been very happy with it, but it's not free. Sony's tutorials for it are quite good and will get you going pretty quickly.

I don't know much about Movie Maker, but you are looking for a way to manipulate scale and position. It might be labeled like that instead of "zoom".

Take a look at VirtualDub, and maybe VirtualDub Mod.

They are free video editing software packages. The 'mod' version has more bells and whistles, one of which is an enhanced zoom perspective filter that enhances the resize feature in VirtualDub. Frankly the zoom feature in VirtualDub will most likely do exactly what you want.

VirtualDub is very popular and there are plenty of tutorials out there on how to use it.
