Got a video clip that I'd like to put in the foreground while putting a still picture in the background. Is that possible in FCP5? How can I do that. Read the Help and am VERY Confused.
Thanks for the help!

i bought a new powerbook yesterday but fcp was out of stock!

On an avid i'd put the background picture on v1 (imported or pan and scan effect) Then place the foreground picture above it on v2, then as V2 is full frame you need to add a pip (picture in picture) effect to it, to reduce its size and key it over the background. I hope fcp is similar?
I'll tell you next week!

FCP is very simular.. you take the still picture and put it on v1 an then the other video that you want on v2, and v3, v4, etc, depending on how many videos you want to use.. then you put your canvas on image and wireframe then you go down (or up) to one of the corners and grab the corner til you make the video the size you want it to play at.
