I know I can create a "ken burn" like effect for still images with motion or other plug-ins but I was wondering if there was some simple way of doing so in FCP?

Sure. Keyframing. This tutorial will get you started

on the whole keyframing works great, and is pretty easy

but before you start tearing your hair out,
it;s biggest weakness, IMO, is when you're trying to do a zoom & pan into a smooth STOP, using the "ease in-ease out" controls
zooming and panning use different scales, so the move goes all snakey.

it is possible to iron it out, (with a fair bit of work)
but in the past i've just avoided the issue, by always dissolving,
never actually stopping the move
unless it's from a straight zoom in.


cheers,

Good tip Nick. Same here although a few years ago I just kept banging at it and tamed the Ease In Ease Out monster. Took a few dozen times but finnally I just got it and stuck with it and kept going. From then on though I just use Lyric's Pan Zoom plug in. And even then I never stop the move.

Just seems to look better.

Apple's Motion does a fantastic job of easing to a stop.

Mike:
"I just kept banging at it and tamed the Ease In Ease Out monster"

good to hear.
did you use the Quickview window?
i remember Kevin Monohan writing that he used it to iron out the kinks.
makes sense

Christopher:
"Motion does a fantastic job of easing to a stop."

good to know.
do you know of any on-line tutorials about this?
(i suppose there might be something succinct in the manual?)
i really prefer working in a timeline, where i can shuffle voice and music around.
