Use templates overview
There are two kinds of templates in Motion: composition templates and Final Cut Pro templates. This section discusses composition templates. For information on Final Cut Pro templates, see Final Cut Pro templates overview.
Composition templates are premade, royalty-free projects that you can customize. They’re intended to simplify the process of creating professional-looking titles and graphics, especially for recurring projects such as television series. Using composition templates, you can:
Create placeholder layers (called drop zones) for easy placement of custom video or graphics.
Customize placeholder text without overriding effects or keyframes already applied to the template text.
Modify animation already applied to a template to suit your own timing needs.
