27 November 2023
In the ever-growing realm of social media, standing out from the crowd is crucial. CapCut templates are a game-changer for creating eye-catching Instagram Reels that showcase your practices personality and storytelling skills.
What is CapCut?
CapCut is a freemium video editing platform, best known for its viral templates. From memes, to AI transformations, CapCut has a huge library of free templates you can use to recreate for your own content.
How to find CapCut Templates?
You can find trending CapCut templates in a couple of ways:
- On the explore page on Instagram.
- Scrolling through your explore page, and newsfeed – is often a great way to find trending templates, and find inspiration for content that you’d like to put your own spin on. If you see the same template several times, this is a good indicator that the template is trending.
- In the CapCut app itself
- CapCut shows the number of time a template has been used (similar to the way audios are labelled in IG). The higher the number – the more times it has been used. Therefore it is not difficult to assume that template is trending.

Step 1 – Choose your template. You can scroll through the template library, search or browse by template type to find the best one for you.
Step 2 – Once you’ve selected the template, hit ‘Use template’. You’ll be prompted to to choose the video/photos depending on which template you have chosen.
