The most difficult transition you have To make creatively is transitioning from your original still frame dimensions to what most likely will be a HD 1920 x 1080 framed movie. Taking a step back, when I shoot the timelapse scene I generally construct my frame so that it is wider than what I think the final frame will be .
Then I set up a custom projec in FCPX , usually around 4K depending on the pixels dimensions of the still frame.. Once that is done its easy to do some re composing, pans and scans and moves inside of the original still frame dimensions. Motion can be you friend here to help devise a traveling crop of the original still frames into your final, presumably 1920x1080 HD frame size.
