Quick Tip: Ken Burns Effect in Media Composer

@c0ina on Twitter added:

Always a bad idea putting the effect on a generic clip when it comes to online. Import the photo and use as clip first for metadata.

Great piece of advice, especially if you’re planning on doing online with your footage.

I had to drive up to West Hollywood this morning to work on a project (I live in the South Bay, so it’s a hike) only to realize that the entire project is inconveniently on a portable hard drive at home. Thankfully, I keep multiple backups of my projects, and always have FCP auto-save to a separate hard drive than the one my project is on.

I was able to thankfully grab my most recent auto-save, mount the card files from my project and everything’s happily reconnecting.

It pays to keep backups!
