Free Download: Photo Slideshow Template and Music – A New Season

I have another fun surprise for you today!

It’s a photo slideshow template for Final Cut Pro with matching music, and it’s free. :)

This is a very simple template, but I think it could be useful in many situations.

For example, sometimes you need a simple photo slideshow with music, but you don’t want to spend a lot of time adjusting the Ken Burns effect in Final Cut Pro X, selecting and timing music, etc.

This template should help with that problem. It’s a slideshow that’s already animated and is already timed to a specific music track. All you have to do is drop the template into your project, drag the music in, and then click to select each of the photos for the template’s fifteen drop zones.

Everything else is already set.

The included music is a simple piece of gentle music that I composed, and it matches the template’s mood and duration.

I hope you enjoy the template and matching music and that you’re able to get some use out of them. :)

Thanks for being a subscriber!

How to Install and Use the Custom Template

This video demonstrates how to install and use the template:

Template Sample

Here’s an example of the template’s final results:

Please note that the template is designed to use landscape (not vertical) photos. Also, you’ll need at least version 10.4.3 of Final Cut Pro X for the template to work.

You might have noticed some changes

If you’ve been looking around my website and it seems different, well, I’ve made some changes. :)

I’ve finally done something I’ve been wanting to do for years: I’ve merged my courses and membership into one website. (Woohoo!)

Why did I do this?

I did it for several reasons, but the biggest one is this:

I wanted my members to have one login for both the membership and the courses.

In the past the members needed two separate logins because the membership and the courses were on two separate platforms. That’s no longer the case.

Because I was moving platforms anyway, I decided to use this opportunity to make a few other changes:

The membership program has a new name. It’s called The Mastery Group. And it has a small monthly fee instead of a larger annual fee.

But the biggest benefit to the membership is that it now qualifies you for automatic discounts on my training courses/tutorials. (And that’s in addition to any coupon codes I send out).

The free version of my Final Cut Pro X Tutorial has a new location. (If you’ve linked to it, please update your links to reflect the new location).

Also, there’s a new page called My Courses (with a link at the top of the page). This is where you can find your courses that you’ve registered for.

(By the way, I had to transfer most of the course enrollments by hand, so if you find something missing from your account, please send me an email so I can get it fixed for you.)

As I was transferring folks over to the new platform, I noticed many customers that have been with me for 10+ years. This means so much to me. Thank you for sticking with me through the years!

And if you’re new to Izzy Video, welcome! I hope you find the resources here useful.

Anyway, the items I listed above are probably the most significant changes. It was a big undertaking for me, but I’m happy to have completed it.

I have more exciting announcements coming soon, so please stay tuned. :)

EDIT: Please note that the new system will require you to reset your password. Passwords from the old platform won’t work. The good news is that resetting your password is a simple process. Just use the “Lost your password” link on this page.
