How Do Apply the Ken Burns Effect to Video Clips?

FCE. I'm sure I'm making this harder than it is, but I cannot for the life of me make it work: Ken Burns on a video clip instead of a still.

All wireframe functions; sizing, rotating, etc, are fully functional. Where it seems to go wrong is I am unable to Keyframe the beginning and end of the clip, assuming that's even the right way to do it.

I've checked all my usual sources, You Tube in particular, and haven't found anything dealing with video clips.

Any suggestions are appreciated.

Hi Ivan.

Are you allowing for your "handles"? For NTSC-area footage, if you are using 1-second transitions, you would need to have 15 or 16 frames before your In point and 15 or 16 after your Out point.

My apologies if I have misunderstood your problem.
