Free Final Cut Pro X Library Template!

Updated: May 20

Title says it all really.!


This is a Final Cut Pro X Library template I use constantly for my edits on short, commercial and feature work.


One main advantage that FCPX has over any other NLE is its ability to create and parse through mass amounts of metadata.

Although this ends up being an advantage in the long run, many editors still approach FCPX with unreasonable amounts of caution because they’re used to the old way of thinking about NLE user interfaces and workflows. It is a method that uses a plethora of bins and timelines to endlessly categorize media. Although this method works, it’s unnecessarily tedious and a bit dated.


Feel free to download it gPavloudis-Template Lib_20200430. Feel free to use this template as much as you want! Let me know what you use for your own projects, always keen on seeing how other people organise their work! You can use this email address to send me a message, or ping me on Twitter, where you’re more likely to get a quick (and much shorter) response.



🎬 Roles Template Project_v3a1


It includes already labelled and pre-established events, smart and keyword collections, as well as a dedicated event to housing a Roles setup. Clips which just have small, bite sized generators and audio clips inside them with roles assigned so when the Library opens, they launch into FCPX.


TAGS 🏷

The TAGS folder is a collection of searches that I use all the time.

💔 Unsed Favorites: It's amazing to be able to click and see all the shots you've taken as favorites and haven't used them.


🐌 Slo-Mo: Without effort and only with metadata that the Final Cut Pro X reads, we have all our slooooow moootion rushes.


🌊 Atmos: You are not tired of searching in a metadata fields for atmos per locations. Another smart collection of audiovisual material is at your service.







Click & Import ⬇️

I have created a folder with a name, which leads you to what you need to do!


During the life of a project, we receive a huge amount of audiovisual rushes from the shooting. But on a daily base, new materials are coming, such as image files, specific aerial footage, draft or final graphics and much much more, depending on the type of project.


I select a tag from the folder and then by pressing File> Import> Media I have a double score.! The imported files will receive this tag and anything else from Final Cut Pro.
