[Bret Williams] "Don't use gausian blur. There is no reason to blur horizontally"

It is important to have no single pixel lines or spots which may result in flicker.
If you are going to rotate and zoom the images in FCP, you will need to blur both horizontally and vertically.
I believe guassian blur (about0.3 or so, depending on your original image size) is appropriate.

If you are not rotating them in FCP, then it is reasonable to blur vertically only.

Personally, too, a little soft is better than a little sharp when putting images into video.
