What on earth is a cinemagraph and how do you make one? This new episode of MacBreak Studio explains all.

Well what can we say! Mark says that we were the inspiration for this latest episode of MacBreak Studio. Cinemagraphs can be simple to make and look great when when used in the right place.

In this latest episode of MacBreak Studio, Mark Spencer shows Steve Martin how to build a simple cinemagraph in Final Cut Pro X and a more complicated one in Motion.
