I'd love to see a plug-in for FCP/Motion that does most of the heavy lifting and then dumps the results on to the timeline for us to edit. I think that's really what most of us are looking for. This is the reason all my Mac editing stations still live with one leg in the PC world, as Sony Vegas handles this very elegantly.

CM's "I.F." plug-in works well but not for a project that has dozens of stills. It also takes a good deal of time to render and any changes require re-rendering the entire sequence, not just the changes.

For this particular need I still think LQ's "Photo-to-Movie" is the best bet; you can create the entire sequence exactly as needed without the long render times in FCP and once you've got it perfect simply export it in the QT format to match the FC timeline and drag-n-drop. It has all the WYSIWYG features and quick-n-easy Kens Burns effects built-in. And it's cross-platform compatible to boot.

It certainly looks good & the ability to output uncompressed 422 means that it is easy to import into a FCP project. It is certainly a whole lot cheaper than Core Melt Image Flow at $50 versus $400.
