The Ken Burns effect is a type of panning and zooming effect used in video production from still imagery and the name derives from extensive use of the technique by American documentarian Ken Burns.

We're going to use the module called Fullwidth Header to present this effect.

Set the Title, Subheading text and any content you want and then add a background image, a background color rgba(0,0,0,0.28), set Use parallax Effect to YES and select the Parallax Method to CSS

Important Note: The Ken Burns Effect will not work unless the CSS parallax method option is selected and set to CSS Parallax.

Then head over to the Design tab and make it fullscreen:

Now go to the Subhead Text and set the font color to #eeefa0

What triggers the effect is the CSS via a class, so head over to the Advanced tab and assign a class to the module. Here is a list of each with a short description:

kb-zoomin – zooms in on the image
kb-zoomout – zooms out from the image
kb-zoomin-right – zooms in and pans right on the image
kb-zoomout-right – zooms out and pans right on the image

Depending on what class you chose to set for the module, the effect will apply. I am using the Zoom In effect for this tutorial so I will assign the class kb-zoomin

Now, save the layout and exit.

It’s time to add our CSS for the Ken Burns Effect. Go to Divi → Theme Options → Custom CSS and enter the following:

Save the changes, go and check the module to see the effect in action. Here is how it will look like with the Zoom In effect:
