Using Still Images and Graphics in Your Sequences

Still images are commonly used in motion graphics sequences, custom titles created in
another application, and illustrative graphics such as charts and diagrams. They are also
used as placeholder graphics during editing (before a finished shot is delivered to your
editing system) and as background images for multilayer compositing. For more
information about working with multiple layers of video and graphics, see Chapter 19,

Compositing and Layering

,” on page 387.

You can also apply traditional camera stand (or motion camera) moves to a still image
(as is often done in documentaries) by setting motion effect keyframes.

You can add still images to your sequence during any phase of post-production.
