What Are CapCut Templates?

CapCut is a free video editing platform best known for its viral TikTok templates.

From memes to AI transformations, CapCut has a pool of free templates users can recreate for their own content — including ones from popular TikTok creators.

However, it's important to note that CapCut templates are only available in certain regions.

This could be due to restrictions (or bans) of the TikTok app where you reside.

Tap “Preview” to load the template with your clips. 

Then press the pencil icon under the “Video” tab to edit the clip by replacing, cropping, photo editing, or adjusting its volume.
