Sewing Two Shots Together

I'm wanting to sew two separate shots together, both on the same plain of a lateral swivel. I want to fuse them in such a way that the motion and background are both consistent between the shots while also allowing the character subjects to inhabit the frame at the same time. I've manipulated opacity to give you an idea of what I'm wanting as the final product but I don't think opacity is the answer. HELP.

I'm reading your post on an Android tablet which doesn't support flash so I can't view your example but I suspect composite mode might be what you are looking for. Undo your opacity change first.

most basic way is to keyframe the crop

if that doesn't give you enough control, the next level up is to keyframe a garbage matte, 4 point, or 8 point

both of these approaches have issues due to FCP not having much control over the feathering: it's universal, same feather on al sides including the edges of teh frame where no stitching is required.

one way is to layer a feathered version on top of a non-feathered version with a slightly offset animation,

if you're very lucky a wipe transition might work, but you;d have the least amount of control over that.

or use motion

also, the rotational speeds of the two shots are slightly off,
adjusting speeds would be the hardest and give you unwanted artefacts,

simply keyframing the left / right position of one shot would be the simplest.
it;s not impossible in FCP doing it manually, (quite simple, really)
but using one of the tracking tools in motion should be more accurate.

Shoot with a motion control rig to reduce errors in the pan. No auto-iris, either.
Don't use FCP for this -- Motion or After Effects are much better-suited for the task. Much easier to animate feathered masks using either.
