How to Customize Colors in Final Cut Pro X Templates and Themes

Some people use Final Cut Pro X templates as they are. Other people like to customize them like crazy and really make them “their own”.

For example, sometimes we need to change the colors. Maybe we need the color to match a logo, or maybe we need the colors to better match the mood of the video.

Whatever the reason, we need to have control over the colors in a template. Sometimes that can be a simple thing, and sometimes it can be pretty complex. It depends on the way the template is structured.

In this video, I demonstrate how you can customize colors in templates.

Monster Face Effect in Motion 5 – Izzy Video 277

Just in time for Halloween!

Today I published a new video that demonstrates how to transform a regular face into a monster face.

I use my son, Aiden, as an example. :)

This Motion 5 tutorial uses several different techniques to create the effect:

  • Motion tracking
  • Filters
  • Masks
  • Keyframes

I think it’s a great way to become more familiar with these powerful tools in Motion because you get to use them in combination.

Now Available: My New Online Store

I’m happy to announce that I’ve moved all of my downloadable courses and most of my themes to my new online store (It’s easy to find at A few reasons I made this change:

  • The store offers a more traditional online buying experience
  • If you (optionally) set up an account, then you can find download links for the products you purchased, just in case you need to download them again.
  • It’s easier for you to find what you’re looking for.

Overall, I think this is going to be a big improvement and much better experience for you.

Of course, I’m going to keep this blog at going, and I’ll continue to post updates, free courses, and videos here periodically. But downloadable courses and themes will be located at

I hope you enjoy the new shopping experience!
