Could you please learn to follow the thread? It's not me who was asking 
for help.
I was only explaining to you how I understood the original poster's 
problem and it seems like I undestood it correctly. And short answer is 
that it's impossible to do what he wanted to achieve and that's the 
whole bloody point and no magic can change that unless you know some 
alien geometry that isn't applicable to real world anyhow.

If I had to do anything like that, I'd fire up AviSynth 2.5 just like in 
the old days and then encode using MeGUI, the only decent x264 GUI.
Besides.. Zooming? Panning? For crying out loud, it's all just cropping, 
resizing and in some bad cases adding borders to get back to mod16. No 
reason to use fancy names like panning or zooming. In other words KISS. 
As long as you understand basic concepts and have common sense there is 
no need for being taught each specific thing. Thank you very much. NOT
