What is this?
In 2012, Ripple Training made a video about Motion 5’s link behavior. In their example they used titles only available in Motion 5. Some people commented they’d love these titles in Final Cut Pro X. I couldn’t agree more so I converted them to FCPX titles. Party time!
Why should YOU care?
Duh, 24 FREE titles! I spent 37 hours converting, linking and testing these templates so you don’t have to. Grab ’em and get creating!
In Motion 5, these titles are compositions. I converted them to Title templates by changing the file extension from .motn to .moti and then published to FCPX. All the different elements had different color controls so I linked the colors together and published the controls. Now it’s easy to customize the color of each template.
How to install it
Template Pop is distributed through FxFactory so it’s a piece of cake to install. Just click this button to start the installation. If you don’t have FxFactory, you can download it here.
How to use it
In Final Cut Pro X (10.3 or newer) click on the Title browser. Select Template Pop and select your title from 8 different themes.
Drag the title onto your clips and then select the title. Depending on the title you’ll have some or all of the following options.
- Shape colors
- Text colors
- Background Colors
- Background Opacity
You’ll notice in some of the templates when you change the shapes’ colors that there’s a delay. Some of the shapes update right away and others you have to move the playhead before they change color. Don’t worry too much because they do in fact change; you just have to move the playhead. Take a look at this video to see it in action.
