    @Jon, very, very inventive.
    I like the cowboy on the bullet, very Dr Strangelove.

    No. It's identical to what you would do if you placed a transparent shim, used by Gary P and Egg, over the image. As I said before, if you can see it, you can get it. I only suggested it to suggest...

    Re: Whats this effect called?

    And I countered as it is a Ken Burns Effect with no Pan, it isn't a Ken Burns Effect. It is just a Zoom In as there is no (presented or asked for) method to adjust where the zoom centres on.

    You can select any of these and...

    handrawn, have you tried to just Detach Opacity Mask, adjust and re-apply? The Mask objects are then visible and grouped but you can isolate any one with Ctrl+Select.
