Tutorial: Creating Photo Slideshows in Final Cut Pro X

I went right out and purchased Final Cut Pro X when it was released. I didn’t know what to expect. All I knew is that it was different and it was cheap. I was growing tired of the long render times required just to make my wedding photography clients a photo slideshow. In the past I have used Fotomagico, Adobe After Effects, Motion and Final Cut Pro 7. However, I was excited to figure out how to create a slideshow in Final Cut Pro X because it boasted quick render times. I decided to put together a short tutorial explaining how I used Final Cut Pro X to create a photo slideshow for my wedding client because it was a different process. I hope this video helps you.

Here is the first slideshow I created in Final Cut Pro X:

I would love to see the slide show you create, post a link to it in the comments below as well as ask any questions you may have.

    Looks good and very fast.  I would like to see the photos cropped to the edges and also some slight movement…imovie does that automatically…any ideas for FCPx?

    Jerad, I got here from iTunes looking for something on Final Cut Pro X.

    Thank you for the clear instructions. You certainly demonstrated how you made a slideshow on FCP X.

    I wish you were doing some explanations on a video shoot edited with FCP X.

    I watched the finished wedding and I thought you did a great job for the newly weds. I hope that this brings you a lot of work.

    I wish you continued success,

    This tutorial is excellent. Thank you so much for sharing this tutorial. 
    Do you resize your images a specific size for the slideshow before importing them?
