    Animation and Split Screens. . .
    Hey All! Oak here. I am new to Video editing. I just bought a nice plugin for split screens. How do I get a clip to go to its position in a split screen slowly and not immediately? Animating its journey sort of. Any help would be appreciated. Oak

    Hi Oak, and welcome! What plugin do you buy? It would depend on the plugin ability as to whether you can create a transition/animation into the split screen. Also, are you using FCP X or an earlier version? Thanks Rounik

    Hey Rounik! Thanks for the reply. I am using FCP X, and I bought a split screen plugin from FCPeffects: http://www.fcpeffects.com/collections/new-stuff/products/screen-splitter The "readme" instructions say I can use a Ken Burns effect with it, but I think that juts animates the crop; it won't move the clip slowly to its section of the split screen. Maybe I'm wrong on that. Ideas? Thanks again, Okorie

    Hi Okorie, Have you tried using the 'Transform' settings to resize and move the clips using keyframes? Hope that works... Rounik

    Right, if you use a plugin, you can only do what that plugin gives you the controls to do. For what you want to do, keyframing is super easy. Just remember you have to set a keyframe first (click the keyframe diamond to the right of the parameter in the Inspector), then after that set the parameter value. If you do it in reverse, you'll have problems.
