    I am currently editing my self-made 'adult' film, "The Men of Mac". In making a sample, i wanted a small Apple logo over the lead actors penis tip. It is easier said than done, and i was wondering if there was a way to select the shape of the head, and FC would search each frame and place a specified image there.

    lol, like said, it cannot be done in Final cut, but if you bought Final Cut studio you can launch motion and set a tracking point, "track it", so it creates a path, and then place text or a picture to follow the motion track.

    By the sounds of it you certainly live up to your name.

    you could've easily asked this question without bringing up the adult content... FYI for next time

    If you don't have motion, you could try this...
    Supposedly the "pin blur" feature of this plugin does what you want.
    Lyric Motion Tracking Plugin
    And a tutorial found here

    It doesn't do anything for good taste, however.

    Thanks, however a "pin blur" hardly seems appropriate. You'd understand if you saw the actors.

    So you really didn't have any interest in the answer, just thought you'd waste everyone's time? Perhaps "pin" is for pinhead instead
