Shortly after posting my tutorial on Creating a Photo Slideshow in Final Cut Pro X I was asked several times about mixing photo and video together on the same timeline. Of course Final Cut Pro X can do this so I thought I would put together a followup video describing the process of editing photos and videos together on the timeline.
In this video I describe how to edit photos and videos together in one project to create a hybrid slideshow. Video can add a really interesting dynamic to a photo slideshow. Since most of the cameras released today shoot both photo and video, it is easy to grab a couple of video shots to spice up your photo montage.
Stay tuned to my Vimeo profile to see an example of a hybrid slideshow. At a recent wedding I shot photo and video and am excited to create my first hybrid slideshow for my client.
