FCP 7 Tutorial - Creating Effects With Still Images
Incorporating still images into your movie is a great way to create visual interest, and also lets you incorporate information that you wouldn't otherwise be able to include. Many documentaries include still photographs to give information about historical time periods when the moving image didn't exist, and even narrative films use still photographs to create montage sequences. Many animated movies are made entirely from still photographs, in which the scene changes a little bit in each frame to create the illusion of movement.

By guiding you through adding movement to still photos, creating a freeze frame from a video clip, and importing stills to create an animation, this tutorial will give you the tools you need to use still photographs in your movie.
