I usually do this outside FCX.
I simply keyframe two positions on a photo.
It will automatically ease in and out or be liniar. Not what I want.

I want to control the easing. It doesn't seem possible (no handles or bezier?) or I am missing something?

Thanks.

Right click on " Path Points", (Canvas)

if you struggle with it use Ken Burns, it will ease Scale also

Thanks.
Ken Burns doesn't offer me the type of control I want.
Maybe I'm just used to working this differently.

It's done in the Viewer with on-screen controls. Right-click the keyframe there.

Thanks for the image.
I did find this. I think there is not much control over the easing.
Or maybe I should say, I find it difficult to do what I want in FCX in that window.
I much prefer a keyframe based control on it's own timeline a bit like with AE where I visually see
what I am doing. I thought it would be in the animation window in the timeline.
You pull the bezier and you see the curve,
As I said this is me...incapable of doing properly with FCX !

Thanks.

There are no Bezier handles in FCPX. Yeah, we've complained about the limited keyframing abilities from day one.

I think using "Motion" will be great for you

specially with a virtual 3D "Camera" , (inside Motion).
