Hi guys, I'm just wondering the best ways to move many files from my Aperture library into a folder for stills in the Browser window in a Final Cut Pro project I'm working on. Also does it matter how big the pixel size is of the jpeg? I downloaded them from a Canon Eos Rebel XTI. The files are currently at 2816 x 1880. if i need to downsize the files what is a good size that Final cut will like? by the way i would like the images to match the size of the video. my video is in 16:9. Thanks for all your input.

I don't know anything about Aperture as I prefer Photoshop, but I'd recommend just exporting all of the pictures you want to use into a simple folder on the desktop. Then when in Final Cut Pro, import the folder. Drag the pics to the timeline (the default length is 10 seconds and you can change each pic to be any length you want, even 40 hours or more!) That's it! The higher resolution of the pictures, the better. That way you can zoom in on them and move them around, etc, so your audience is less bored. Don't worry about the 16:9 thing. If your timeline is set to anamorphic (as it should be) then dragging the photos into the timeline with squish them as they should be in such an instance. When it's all said and done, they will look proper. Have fun!
