Hi, my name is Zach, and today I'm going to explain how to animate a still image in Final Cut Pro. First, you're going to start off by importing your image and just dragging on with the timeline. Once you've done this, you can double click your image and bring it up in the viewer. Next, you're going to go to the motion setup and while you're in the motion's tab, you're going to see a light gray area. That's the duration of your clip. So, basically, you're going to hit this little diamond right here and that's going to insert a key frame. Next, you're going to pull your play head to the end and insert another key frame by using the same button. Here is where you're going to change the parameters of the scale. What you're going to do is you're just going to bring it up probably about 10 to 15 pixels. And that's all there is to it. And here is the image. My name is Zach and that's how you animate an image in Final Cut Pro.
