    Hi there, Is it possible to put a single continuous zoom across several shots in FCPx, which I know how to do in Avid, but can’t figure out in FCP. Thanks

    There are a few different ways – most common would probably be to group the shots into a compound clip and apply your zoom to that container (either with keyframes or plugin). Next would be an adjustment layer, which really is just an empty text generator that you can cover the clips with, and apply the zoom there.

    Thanks Doug, The Adjustment layer sounds like the way to go for me, similar to Avid. Thanks again Guy
