    3D Ken Burns Effect w/Film not Photos---Anyone Know How?
    What i want to do is creating a layered film. same concept as in photoshop when you have a picture and remove a person, than start removing objects to create layers so as to create a 3d ken burns effect. How do i create a 3d ken burns effect with film? is there a way to pen tool lets say a object with in a film and the object is followed and everything else is cut out? So if i had a film of a guy surfing for thirty seconds I would want to: 1. removed the surfer and create a thirty second moving layer of him 2. remove the wave and create a moving layer 3. remove the sun and so on so on

    What you're asking is pretty advanced stuff, and you'd need a proper compositing app to do it with. Motion, AE, or such. Even in Motion or AE you're working with bare minimum tools. Something more advanced like the old Shake app is what you really need. You could also export the QT clip as an Image Sequence and manually do each frame one by one. But FCP X by itself is not designed for that sort of advanced compositing and rotoscoping.
