Motion path/velocity issue

Im desperate for help...
I have a problem controlling velocity when I create a motion path on a still image. Basically I want to zoom in on a part of an image while it is moving across the screen.
I have keyframed a section of a still image. I am increasing scale from one keyframe to the next. It moves much to quickly from one keyframe to the other. I have tried adding bezier handles and shortening the distance between the little dots, but I only manage to change the motion path.
Does anybody have any idea what Im doing wrong?
Thanks

Kirsten,
Maybe I'm misunderstanding, but it sounds like you just need to set your keyframes farther apart. That's the way to control the speed of the zoom. If you need variable speed or more refinement, the only way to add bezier handles for scale is in the motion tab on the scale timeline. The bezier handles you can create in the canvas only affect center point.

In Motion?

The velocity of a move is dependent on how much time you give an object to move between a and b. If you want something to move half as fast double the amount of time.
