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!

    1. Thanks Izzy, I can see this working in well with a video of a funfair trip that is planned with the grandchildren.

  1. Hey Izzy,
    Thank you for the Light Spiral Animation Loop. I have downloaded and will install it into FCP X in the next few days.

    Thanks again.

  2. Thanks Izzy
    Now if I can figure out an ingenious way to use it in vacation video from a Viking River Cruise ….


  3. Dank je Izzy, ik zou graag meer van je werk willen gebruiken maar kan het tempo van deze ontwikkelingen niet bijhouden. Ik werk nu een jaar of 6 met fcx, niet dagelijks maat wel vaak. Ik probeer steeds meet toepassingen uit. Je doet goed werk, daar ben ik erg blij mee maar heb al problemen om dat allemaal te lezen (in het Engels). Nu staat alles netjes vertaald in het Nederlands, fijn. Ik heb nu nog wel een brandende vraag. Waarom moeten de video bestanden eerst naar MOV geconverteerd worden? Wij werken met AVCHD MTS bestanden, met de camera’s van de lokale omroep. Wat is daar mis mee?

    1. Hi Piet, I had to put your comment into a Dutch-to-English translation on Google to understand it. :)

      The short answer to your last question is that you don’t *need* to convert AVCHD footage to ProRes if your computer handles it without a problem. It just makes things work more smoothly.

      The reasons I transcode to ProRes first come down to three items (off the top of my head):

      1) I like to catalog my clips, and my cataloging software can recognize ProRes but not AVCHD.
      2) I like to archive my footage in a format that I think will be easily used in the future (20 years in the future for example), and I think Prores will be good for that. But of course, I don’t have a crystal ball, so I could be wrong.
      3) It’s simple to move Prores clips around on hard drives because they’re stand-alone clips.

      Anyway, I hope that helps! :)
