I'm using a still image as a part of my HD sequence on FCP.
I made the photo move like the camera is tilting (moved the image center up) but the movement
doesn't look well, it flickers and look like it waves.
It happens a lot when I use stills.
Does anyone know the trick?
Im using a 2848 × 2136 JPEG
in a HD 1440x1080 25fps progressive sequence.
FCP is not too good for animating stills, most people use some plugin to get it done better or use something like Motion or AE.
Jpeg also doesn't helps, better something like PNG, TGA or TIFF.
Unless you intend to print back to HDV tape I think there is no reason for you to work in 1440x1080.
I would try in Prores 1920x1080, setting "Render all YUV in High Precision" (although the stills are RGB), and Render Motion Effects BEST. That might help.
