Nearly every video can benefit from an eye-catching title. Simple text can introduce the purpose of the video and add commentary that audio just can't capture.
The best titles stick to a few key principles: quick (but not too quick), catchy, and bold. Here, we present 20 top templates, and you'll learn how to use templates to add titles to your video in Final Cut Pro.
15 Best Title Templates for Final Cut Pro
The benefit of using a template is that you don't have to reinvent the wheel: instead of learning animation and creating the titles from scratch, you can use the work of others to save hours of design work.

1. FCP Titles
With resolutions all the way up to 4K, you'd have no problem using this project for your next Blu-Ray release! Even if you'll never publish in that format, these sharp, scalable tiles are an incredibly appealing visual option.
Not only is this a solid choice of Final Cut Pro text titles, it also has the animation elements that will help you start your video with a bang. Use any of these options to start your video with a bang!

Another solid and clean option in this round-up, the Modern Titles package has a variety of visual styles for bringing text into your production. The multiple options in this pack mean you might never use the same title text twice.
Because Envato Market is a pay-as-you-go option, the best value is in elements that can be re-used without repeating the same effect. This Final Cut Pro title package fits the bill perfectly thanks to the depth of options that are included for animating bright titles.
Helpful Tips for Editing in Final Cut Pro
Final Cut Pro is a popular video editing tool with a surprising amount of features. If you want to improve your ability to create projects in the program, keep these useful tips in mind.
1. Organize With Audio Lanes
Working with audio in Final Cut Pro can become chaotic quickly. To keep yourself on track, use audio lanes. It's a way to categorize the different audio tracks you're working with.
To use this tip, click the View tab. Then click Timeline Index and select Roles. From there you can decide if you want to select an audio role to appear in its own lane or if you want all audio roles to appear in their own lanes.
2. Create Clip Placeholders
This is a neat feature that lets you work around gaps in your timeline. If you're still waiting for footage, you can create a placeholder for that shot while you keep working. Select where you want to generate a placeholder in your timeline. This Final Cut Pro tutorial from Apple explains how to get it done.
3. Find And Replace Text
It's great if you're using one of the FCP title templates from this post, but that doesn't mean you won't have any typos. Thankfully they're very easy to fix. By clicking Edit and Find and Replace Title Text, you can quickly make changes. It's a useful time-saver, especially with large projects.
