This is an excerpt from a recent PowerUP webinar: Still Images in Final Cut Pro X.
This is a very cool technique to bring depth and animation to a photograph by using Photoshop layers and Final Cut Pro X. All it takes is a still image with a clearly defined subject, a little bit of time, and some imagination.
I first used this technique decades ago using an animation stand and a video camera, it’s also used a lot in high-end documetaries. Now, we can create this effect totally within our computer – no camera needed.

This looked very promising, but when I imported my photoshop with layers file, and placed it in a timeline, double-clicking on it did nothing, had no effect…
You need to double-click the Photoshop clip in the Browser, not the Timeline.
