Web based online tools provided by Sight-Creations/FCPXTemplates

Font Inspector: a tool to display the character maps of font files. Especially useful if you have a shapes font for 3D model development in Motion.

Motion Template Backdater: developers usually have to use the latest version of Motion. As it turns out, FCPX “reads” template files to find out which version of Motion made the template. This tools can change that information so older versions of FCPX can use your Template. *(You must be aware of the features used in any given template — you cannot simply backdate any template and have it work in FCPX. For example, you cannot backdate a template using 360º video or 3D Text to versions of FCPX that did not utilize those features.)

Create Filler Text: Lorem Ipsum up to 13 paragraphs worth. Options are “regular” Latin and Gaelic languages if you don’t want to be stuck with Lorem Ipsum — be different!

Motion Template Backdater

Use Motion Template Backdater to backdate your Motion Templates to be compatible with the version of FCPX you are running. You should research the types of features in your template to make sure your version of Final Cut will be “aware” of those features. Expect that if the template you’re backdating requires certain dependencies, it may not work. That won’t break FCPX, but you should remove templates that don’t work from the Motion Templates hierarchy and keep your downloaded file as a backup until you can upgrade.

If you have not done so before, please read the Instructions & Notes below. It will toggle to display when you click the button.
