.dv is the right file type.
And I think that FCE is limited in not having, maybe, the full  
keyframing abilities of FCP.
  In any case I think that per your suggestion importing the  
photointo iMovie, doing the move there and exporting a .dv to be re- 
imported into FCE is the easiest best way to just get it done.
