    Anyone know how to make animals look like they are talking in Final Cut Pro?

    that isn't something final cut can do...

    it is done in something like after effects or shake

    If you have After Effects here is a tutorial.

    Tell me how far you get before you pull your hair out and kick the computer. ;)

    Forget that. I would have to work one frame at a time... Way too much work...

    My sister is doing a report on her dog and she is making a video about it. (Well more like I am making the video... at least editing it) There is no way I am going to play with several thousand frames.

    Put a spoon of peanut butter in your dog's mouth. That's how they made dogs appear to talk in the movies before the days of digital effects. A little cheesy, I know, but it's better than nothing!

    and try to get shots of the mouth moving, while everything else is stationary - so you can loop it and run it forwards and back. Much more difficult if the head or background are moving at the same time.

    Yeah, I'd suggest trying this one. Smear some on the roof on the dogs mouth, and it will be making some pretty interesting mouth movements that you'll hope go okay with audio.
