How to install templates
1: Quit Apple Motion if running.

2: After downloading the zip file ‘mt free templates’ (located at top of page), the folder ‘mt free templates’ will be sitting on your desktop or in you downloads
folder – open this folder.

3: Drag the ‘MT free templates’ folder into the Apple Motion templates folder, which is located here.
Your HD – Library – Application Support – Final Cut Studio – Motion – Templates
(This is where the Apple templates are stored)
or
Your HD – Users – your user (log in name) – Library – Application Support – Final Cut Studio – Motion – Templates
(The templates folder will only exist if you have saved templates from Apple Motion previously)

4: Launch Motion
go to menu – File – Open Template – find ‘MT free templates’ on left – select template on right – click open template button. Start editing the template.

5: Launch Final Cut Pro – there are a few ways to access the templates,
Go to effects tab in browser – master templates – mt free templates – select and drag one into timeline – double click to edit in controls tab in viewer.
or
Go to generators button in viewer and select master templates – mt free templates – select and drag one into timeline – double click to edit in viewer.
or
Go menu – sequence – add master template – this is the same as the Motion window.

Templates can also be opened as a project via menu – file – open.
They will need to be saved as a template to appear in the templates window in Motion and Final Cut Pro.

V4 templates are Motion V4 and will not load on Motion V3 (see FAQ’s for a way to open V4 templates in V3)


These free Apple Motion templates are in V5 format and are published for use in Motion 5 and Final Cut Pro X…

    1. Sorry Soren– looks like since this posting (June 2011) the site has begun to charge for their templates at Motiontemplate.co.uk. Thanks for the head-up. I’ll likely take down the posting now–

  2. Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the images aren’t loading properly.
    I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it
    in two different web browsers and both show the same results.

    1. I’ve been working with FCPX for a short while myself, originally from FCP7 and Premiere. I’ve only really worked with Motion templates then brought into FCPX to use easily. Be sure to click on “FREE” or just keyword search “FREE” on our blog to find all sorts of free plugins & stuff for FCP & Motion. Tell your friends, and thanks for reading, Brian! –Jeff
