Where to Find Free Final Cut Pro Templates, Plugins & Effects

A  list of Free Final Cut Pro Templates, Plugins & Effects list for you!

Many times we want to create a video with more wow, but do not want to spend a lot of time or money to achieve it.

Well, fear not!  I have created a growing list of where to find amazing, beautiful, and well crafted free animation templates for Final Cut Pro.  The list below are templates I have used in the past, and/or created by people I know and follow or recommended to me by the Final Cut Pro community.



MotionVFX is run by Szymon Masiak, I believe that this site is the most popular place to find templates for Final Cut Pro and Motion.  Their quality is top-notch and he has been in business for a very long time.  I have been a fan of the website for as long as I can remember and it was also the inspiration for me to start my store.   Szymon Masiak is a super nice and extremely talented gentleman.



Final Cut X Free is a depository of all free templates you can find anywhere on the web, it is run by the very talented Roger Bolton from Core Melt.  This website helps you find almost every free template out there. Also please make sure to check out Core Melt to see some very powerful Final Cut Pro Tools.


Stupid Raisins

This site is run by the delightful Dylan Higginbotham.  I had the great pleasure of getting to know Dylan early on in the beginning stages of his store and it amazing to see how popular it has become.  He is a very cool guy and super helpful in sharing his knowledge.



BretFx is run by my buddy Bret Williams, I got to meet him and his family in person as part of my U.S. road trip.  He and his family are super nice and down to earth.  His store is pretty new in the market, but I believe he is making some very useful and great templates for Final Cut Pro.  Make sure to give them a try.



Alex Gollner is a legend in the industry.  He has shared powerful and useful Final Cut Plugins for a very long time.  I would highly recommend you follow him as he is always ahead of the curve when it comes to new features and predictions for Final Cut Pro.



Leno Porto is the owner and the lead motion graphics artist here.  We had a very informative online meeting in the very early stages of the site and I super impressed on how far he has gone.  He is from Brazil and has Brazilian kindness and he is also very talented and very hard working.  Make sure to visit his site and be impressed with some beautiful work.


FCP.CO Forum

This is a great website forum run by the very talented Peter Wiggins.  This forum section includes templates by professionals and hobbyists.  Here you will find a full range of free templates and effects for your Final Cut Projects.  Also, make sure to visit the mail site for the latest news and updates about the wonderful world of Final Cut Pro.


Idustrial Revolution

Another great site by Peter Wiggins with a high number of Final Cut Pro Free Effects.  Peter Wiggins has been in the industry for a very long time and his work reflects this. Make sure to check out the wide selection of paid products as well while you are there.



This is a powerhouse collection of Final Cut Pro plugins and effects from a wide variety of talented creators and artists.  FxFactory is run by the super nice and friendly, Niclas Bahn.
FX Factory is a downloadable App that allows us to easily install all of their products.  In addition, we can also test out their paid products for free with a watermark and after we purchase, the watermark is removed.  They have a wide collection of Free and Paid plugins and effects for Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere, and Adobe After Effects.



Here is a link for Free Final Cut Pro Templates and Lightroom Presets by Vlogger Ryan Fredericks.  Also, make sure to see Ryan and Stacia’s vlogging adventures here. Great work, you two!



Here is a nice collection of Free Effects, Transitions & Generators for FCP X by Luca Bonomo.  Also, a bonus is that we can find a collection of legacy effects for Final Cut Pro 7 as well.  It is amazing how many people still use Final Cut Pro 7 which is an amazing tool.  I still remember when I first used Final Cut Pro version 01 it was so way ahead of its time. Fun times!  🙂


Jon Belew

Here is a new and upcoming website by Creative Director and Editor, Jon Belew, whom I have met in the Facebook world.  Currently, he has 3 free final cut templates and we can find them Here, Here and Here.  I have not had a chance to use these templates yet, so please let me know what you think of them in the comments below.


Tapio Haaja

I just came across this free list by Tapio Haaja.  He has been super friendly in the Motion community and has some very nice free templates.  The free templates can be downloaded by clicking on the link in the video descriptions.



I was just recently contacted by MixKit to let me know that they also have free Final Cut Pro Templates.   I have not used them before and they are new to me.  However their website looks very well made and it seems that MixKit is made by Envato Elements which I have used before and they have been around for a long time.  If you do use them, please let me know your experience.
Thank you, Bianca, for contacting me and letting me know about this Final Cut Pro Resource


Motion Master Templates

I have to mention my store because well because I am very proud of it. 🙂 I have been creating templates for the store since 2010 and I love it and I also love all my customers.  I offer single purchase templates and also yearly memberships to instantly access all the templates in the store.  At this time I have 15 free Final Cut Pro Templates for you to download.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to let me know in the comments below or by sending me an email.
