Steps

  1. 1
    To begin, move the red playhead to the timeline area where you want to add an action
    .
    In the video clip, there is text that is entered in the input field; and we need to zoom in to this area where the text is typed.

    Move the playhead back to the initial spot and click the play button
    .
    You will preview the clip after you have added the action. After the text is typed in the video, you will need to zoom back out. There are a couple of ways to zoom out.

    Then, you need to set the "Scale" and "Position" values back to the previous ones
    .
    While that does work, you do need to be cognizant of the exact starting scale and position.

    A faster and more effective way of zooming out is to place the playhead to the initial position for zooming out
    .

    In the expanded menu that appears, click "Video"

    You may see another pop-up box about adding an action.

    Click "OK" if the pop-up window appears
    .
    The "Add Snapback Action" option cancels the previous action on the timeline. This is much quicker than adjusting the settings to make the video look like as it has been before. The "Add Snapback Action" option is a more efficient way of undoing an action.
