    Hi, I’m a newbie to FCP and FCP X. I’m trying to cross-dissolve from one moving image to another to another and I’m having problems, is there any tips for doing this, anything to remember?

    Hi Sean,

    quoting the user manual:

    1) Choose the Select tool from the Tools pop-up menu in the toolbar and click the edge of a clip (an edit point) in the Timeline.

    One or both clip edges are highlighted.

    Note: If you select a whole clip in the Timeline instead of just an edit point, transitions are added at each end of the selected clip.

    2) Choose Edit > Add Cross Dissolve (or press Command-T)

    this is on page 206 of the manual.

    I would recommend you check it out when having questions regarding the basic fundamentals of FCPX. Nothing wrong with asking here but the manual is a well written, SEARCHABLE pdf document.I am quite sure it took me less time to find that info than it took you to login and write your question here 😉

    Further info about transitions in that chapter, including applying multiple transitions at once.

    hope this helps
