4 awesome Final Cut Pro X and Apple Motion Templates

Planning to become a YouTuber or a Vlogger but don’t know how to use animated overlays, lower thirds or other visual elements to your Videos?

Learning how to create motion graphics in Final Cut Pro or Apple Motion can be quite cumbersome. First you need to learn how to design static graphics (and yeah: you need to understand good design principles and best practices there too). You achieve this in Design Suites such as Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop or less commonly known tools that all have their advantages and quirks.

Then you need to learn how to structure your design composition so you can import it into Final Cut Pro or Apple Motion. That in itself is a very draggy process and might take a while to figure it all out. Understanding how to deal with 4K or HD resolution, keyframes, easing curves and the general interface that handles the different visual asset-formats requires time and commitment.

Then doing the “motion” part of the design again is an art in itself: how to transition, layer, ease and cut the individual elements like shapes, text, boxes, then applying just the right amount of effects on top of them is why good motion artists are going to take a very big chunk of your creative project’s budget.

Doing this alone (like most YouTubers do) can be a daunting challenge, but there is hope! If you are on Apple and FinalCut we’ve picked 4 really cool Motion Templates that allow you to spice up your videos without much of the above pain, while still being able to adjust and customize them to your flavor or brand.
