Hi, my name is Zach, and today I'm going to teach you how to animate a Photoshop file in Final Cut Pro. First, you're going to start by importing your Photoshop document. I'm going to go up to the file menu; I'm going to scroll down until you get to import and select files. Next, you're just going to just find your Photoshop document. You can treat your Photoshop document just as a regular clip. So, you're just going to click and drag and drop it in your timeline. Now, it's time to add some motion. Now, in the motion tab, you're going to see some parameters. Up in the motion tab, you're going to see a light gray area. That's the duration of your clip. So, what you're going to do is go to the beginning of the light gray area and hit this diamond here. That's going to insert a key frame. Next, you're going to go to the end of the light gray area and insert another key frame by hitting this diamond. Now, you're going to adjust your scale by about 10 t 15 pixels and hit enter. And now your Photoshop document is animated in Final Cut Pro; just as easy as that. My name is Zach, and I just taught you how to animate a Photoshop document in Final Cut Pro.
