A lot of the time we face problems with managing our project multimedia files. Sometimes, we lost the files or misplaced them, or confuse them with other projects files. But you don’t have to worry about it anymore since the Wondershare drive is cloud storage from Wondershare to manage and store your files on. So let's move in towards the knowledge and how of this drive.
1. Find Templates
To go to templates on Filmora, you will have to go to “My Media”, where you will see a list of options. Click “Preset Templates”. You will end up with further options: Custom and All Templates. The custom templates contain the ones which you will create in your projects. So far now let's stick to the ready-made templates of Filmora. So click on “All Templates” to see the existing Filmora templates as can be seen in the photo below.
2. Edit in Timeline
You can choose any of the templates from all templates. Let us choose the first one. To make it work, you just need to click and drag it onto the timeline. Once it's pasted on the timeline, you will see it contains three audio tracks, a video, and the title. You can play it to check what's in there as shown below.
Drag Template to TimeLine
3. Edit Template
As we can see that we have three types of tracks on our template. Suppose we have to edit it. Since we are interested in the graphics but we can replace the video with our version. So, delete the video track from the timeline and add your one from media but here for an example we will add another one from the Filmora as shown below.
Edit a Template
Once you deleted the track you can now another video on it. So select a video, drag it to the timeline and crop any additional part of the video, and bingo you will have your video on the template.
Crop Additional Part
You can also edit the text on the template. For that, you have to select the title track. After that hover over the title text on the video and double click on it to edit it. Upon doing that a new window of the text editor will open up on the left side of the Filmora. Type in your text from the text field of the new window. You can even change the font, color, and size and apply effects on the text as shown.
You can do the same for any text on the video. After the edit, you can play the video and enjoy it. That’s not it but you can do this method with all templates to have fun. Another thing to have in your mind is the more graphics the template has, the more it will have the tracks on it. Let's say we add another template: a Minecraft template. This can be added similarly by dragging and dropping to the timeline from the templates menu. You will that it will have a lot of editable tracks as shown below.
You can double-click on any of the tracks and edit them to your liking. Let's say we want to replace the background and apply some effects. To edit the existing video, double click on the track and its settings and effects menu will open as shown.
To replace the background video and apply the settings you just need to drag and drop another video to the timeline over the existing one and click replace. It will be replaced with the previous one, for effect double click on this track and go to the effects menu and do your effects.
To keep the old effects in place for the new video. You will have to select the video old video track and while dragging the new video, hold “Ctrl + Shift + Alt” for windows or “Ctrl + Option” for Mac, and then click and drag down the video to the timeline as shown. It is very important to have the original effect settings in place.
If you are also interested in modifying the effects, just double-click the track, head towards the animation, and modify the settings for more animations as shown.
For changing the title and symbols, you can follow the same method of double-clicking on it and editing it. You can even add more animation, suppose we want to edit the flower and heart on the screen. Select the flower and heart track and choose one from the animation as shown. During pasting make sure you have pressed the shortcut keys for default settings.
Animation in Template
Every track on the timeline is either the graphics, video, or titles that can be replaced with exact settings by pressing the hotkeys and paste. Once you are satisfied with all the settings and modifications on a template, it's time to save it as a template. You can do that by going to the File Save Project as Template and clicking as shown below. You can show the saved template in Custom Templates now.
Once it's saved, you can rename the custom template by clicking right and clicking rename as shown.

Double-tap the titles on the new template and start editing it for your project as shown. You can customize other titles like this too. So, using the templates on Filmora you can very quickly edit a template according to the needs of your project in just a few steps. Isn’t it great?

You can also create your template from scratch all you need is to delete all the tracks from a current template. Then go and select a random video like we did a car video. After that add a music track. Crop the additional music. Fade it out the audio like we learned how to.
