I posted a question like this a while ago and got some good direction, but I'm still struggling with what I would like to do, so please forgive my redundancy here. If anyone out there has the time, please go to YOUTUBE.COM and search for a video by "bigeasy213" titled "MAKE ANY PHOTO LOOK 3D". I think this effect is crazy cool and want to know how I can do the same with the software that I have. The author of this video explained that they used Sony Vegas to create it. I have seen others similar to it that were created with After Effects. Unfortunately I have neither Sony Vegas nor After Effects. What I do have to work with is Final Cut Express 4. It seems to me that I should be able to obtain this effect using FCE 4, but I just can't seem to figure it out. What I have done is separated a high resolution pic into 3 layers using Photoshop CS3 and converted them to a jpeg. I then imported the picture to FCE 4 and put it into the time line. All the layers appear there, but it is at this point that I become stuck. I have no idea how to adjust the depth and what not to get that effect. Ultimately I would like to add several pictures to the timeline and create a cool looking slideshow like the one listed above. Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for helping such a novice.
