How to Use Drop Zones: Part 2

Drop Zones can be powerful time-saving tools in Final Cut Pro. This video is part 2 in my series on using Drop Zones in templates.

It demonstrates how to work with multiple drop zones in one template, how to add photos to a drop zone, and how to change placeholder text.

I hope the information helps!

    A little surprise for you… :)

    Here’s a little surprise for you…

    This is a small bundle of three different animation loops which you can use directly inside Final Cut Pro.

    They’re seamless loops so you can make them as long or short as you want in your Final Cut Pro projects, and they show up in the Generators browser so you can just drag them into your projects as needed.

    Click here to download the free animation loop bundle. (about 443 MB)

    Oh, and the animations are 4K so they’ll work in projects of any size up to 4K.

    The installation instructions are just like other themes. If you need a refresher on how to install them, check out this video for instructions on installing themes.

    (An instructional video is also included inside the download).

    Anyway, enjoy the animation loops!

    Free Download: Light Spiral Animation Loop

    Today I have a free gift for you. It’s an animated video loop for Final Cut Pro.

    I’ve embedded the demo above so you can see what it looks like.

    Here’s the link to download the animation:

    CLICK HERE to download the animation loop. (about 1.5 GB)

    Why is the download so large? Well, it’s a 4K animation in ProRes format, so it’s high quality and ready to use in your projects.

    Once you have it installed, it will show up in your Generators Browser inside Final Cut Pro. And you can just drag it from the Generators Browser into your Final Cut Pro project to use it.

    By the way, you’ll need at least version 10.4.6 of Final Cut Pro (which is the current version as I write this). Also, I’ve included a video inside the download that demonstrates how to install themes and templates in case you need a guide.

    I’ve seen single animation loops like this sell on stock video sites for more than $100, but I’m giving this to you as a way of saying thanks for being a subscriber!

    I hope it’s useful to you. :)

    Edit: For the template to work, you’ll want to make sure you have it in a “Theme Folder” called “Animation Loops”. I’m re-uploading the file with the fix. If you’ve already installed it, here’s the fix. Make sure you have it structured like this:

    “User Account > Movies > Motion Templates > Generators > Izzy Video > Animation Loops > Animation Loop 011”

    If you have the folder set up like that, it should show up inside the Generators browser in Final Cut Pro without a problem. I hope that helps!

    This collection marks the first time I used 3D graphics and animation in the themes. This gives the themes added visual interest, but you still have customizable drop zones and customizable text.

    And they work in up to 4K projects.

    Also, to celebrate the collection’s release, I’m discounting the collection, including a bonus, and including an extra “Fast-Action” bonus for folks who get the collection during the first 48 hours.
