Free Slideshow Template and Matching Music: “In Your Heart”

I have a surprise for you today. I’m releasing another free template and this one has matching free music. Here is a demo of what the template looks like:

This template will work in Final Cut Pro X. (That said, I recommend using templates in Apple’s Motion directly if you have it because you can customize them a lot more.)

Anyway, this is a slideshow-style template. You can use video clips or still photos in the Drop Zones to quickly create an animated slideshow with the matching music, “In Your Heart”.

CLICK HERE to download the template and music bundle!

I’m releasing both the template and the music under a Creative Commons license, which gives you a lot of freedom on how you can use these elements. The details of the license are available by clicking on the link below:

Another important note: Please make sure you install the font I’m including in the download before opening the template on your computer.

  1. This template and music are just perfect to use with some fresh footage of my granddaughters. Thanks, Izzy!

    1. That’s great news! Thanks! :)

  2. Bonjour Izzy,

    Love your template. Unfortunately I will not upgrade beyond Mac OS 10.6.8
    as many of my softwares won’t work anymore. Everything works well so
    why fix it. Your course on Final Cut Pro 7.03 is the best and I am glad
    I took a membership with you. The question is …where will all this technology
    take us.
    With best wishes and thanks always,

  3. Thanks Izzy,
    Some of the element of your download are just what I have been looking for.
    You FCPX Tutorial helped me make the move from Final Cut Pro 7.
    Thanks Allan

    1. Sure thing. Happy to help… :)

  4. Thanks This Title is great. One question though, where do I install the Font?

    1. Thanks, and the good news is that on a Mac, all you need to do is double-click on the font files and they’ll install themselves.

      You can also use a built-in app called “Font book” to manage and browser your fonts. Here’s a link to the Font Book info page on Apple’s site.

      I hope that helps! :)

  5. Thanks for all the good information you always make available, however when I attempted to download and install the latest FCPX template, it did not agree with the instructional video that accompanied it. I have installed previous items that you supplied, I’m lost as how to proceed.

    1. Hmm… I’m not sure what the cause would be.

      To get the template to show in FCPX, the trick is to make sure it’s in this location:

      (Your User Account) > Movies > Motion Templates > Generators > Izzy Video > In Your Heart Slideshow

      If it’s in that location, it should show in FCPX in the Generators Browser. Also, you’ll need to be using the current version of FCPX, 10.2.3.

      I hope that helps.

  6. Hi Izzy, thank you for the nice surprise. Can you please tell me how to install the music?
    I have all my other music in iTunes on an external drive. In the Motions folder there is no Music folder so i must be doing something wrong. Many thanks. Paul

    1. Sure thing, Paul. I think this video should answer that question for you:

      You might want to create a folder called “Izzy Video Music” inside your Music folder to keep save this piece as well as future pieces I’ll release. Of course, you can do whatever you want. You’ll see from the video that you have complete freedom. :)

      1. Thanks Izzy but in my Music & Sound in FCP I have iLife Sound FX and FCP Sound FX but not in folders. A folder with these titles are displayed, but all appear as there is no disclosure triangle. As such, I have a very long list with each sound FX listed individually that makes it very cluttered. ( iMovie sound FX is there too, with no disclosure triangle, but reveals the contents when I click on it.) Can you please tell me how I can put these into folders as shown in your tutorial? Many thanks.

        1. Hi Paul,

          I’m not sure why your system doesn’t appear to be showing things correctly. Hmm…

          Anyway, here are the steps for storing music:

          1) In your Finder, create a new folder in your user’s Music folder. I’d recommend calling it “Izzy Video Music”.
          2) Using the Finder, copy or Move the music file from the template download into the new “Izzy Video Music” folder.
          3) In Final Cut Pro X, open the Music and Sound Browser
          4) Drag the new “Izzy Video Music” folder from the Finder into the Music and Sound Browser in Final Cut Pro X.

          After that, you should have access to the music easily from inside Final Cut Pro X via the Music and Sound Browser.

          Those are the steps. Hope that helps. :)

          1. Great, thanks heaps Izzy this solved my problems.

          2. One more silly question Izzy, do i leave the ‘Izzy Video Music’ folder on my desktop?

          3. Personally I see the Desktop as a temporary place to keep things, but it’s up to you. I would probably move the “Izzy Video Music” folder inside your User Account’s “Music” folder.

  7. Thanks. The ‘install video’ was perfect. Love learning new things for my video editing hobby and you are a great go-to-guy. I’m embarrassed to say that I’ve not started the Motion course I bought from you but will soon!

    1. Thanks for the kind words and for being a customer. Motion is incredible. I hope you enjoy the tutorial! :)
