Hi, my name is Zach, and today I'm going to explain how to add motion to a graphic in Final Cut Pro. First, you're going to start off by just importing a graphic; any graphic will do. You're going to start by making sure it's up in the viewer window just by double clicking. Next, you're going to go to the motions tab. Once you're in the motions tab, you'll see a lighter area and there's a green bars running through it. That's the area we're going to be working with and that's the area of the duration of your clip. First, you're going to start by inserting a key frame, just by hitting this little diamond button here. And now, you're going to move your play head to the end of the light gray area and insert another key frame. The next step is going to be to highlight this number here and type in one that's probably about ten pixels larger and hit enter. And now, when we play the clip, it's going to slowly move towards the screen. My name is Zach and I just explained how to make a graphic move in Final Cut Pro.
