How to : Selective zoom?


I was wondering if there was a way to zoom only some elements on the stage. Let's say I have a "banner" with the title of the slide and I don't want this banner to zoom. Is there a way I can zoom some things without affecting this banner.

I tried adding the banner to another slide or to the slide master, but it doesn't seem to be working.

Thanks for the help!

To not zoom everything on the stage you'll have to create your zoom in a different process, then import that (swf, mp4, web object, etc.) onto your slide.  It's possible that you could use storyline to create the zoom you're looking for, publish and then import the .swf into the slide of your real project.

Thank you everyone for you answers, but this is not exactly what I'm looking for. Along with this message, I've attached a storyline file to demonstrate what I wish to do. I hope this is going to work. I would like the orange title bar to remain on screen, without moving, while I'm zooming on the two zoom region.

If you know a way to do it, please let me know.
Thanks again!

Definitely an area that Storyline 2 could improve on. Camtasia does a very good job of pan, zoom highlight, blur sensitive areas of the screen and you are not locked into the aspect ratio. I create the zoom I want in camtasia and produce a MP4 file and imbed without the player controls into Storyline 2. That being said Storyline 2 does almost everything else better than Camtasia.
