Why is my CapCut Template Not Showing?

Below are the possible reasons why your CapCut templates might not be showing:


Unstable or Weak Network Connection

As far as making use of the CapCut and TikTok apps concurrently is concerned, you cannot do so without a good internet source.

CapCut templates will not be displayed on your TikTok account if you do not have access to a good and stable network connection.


Unsuccessful TikTok to CapCut Connectivity

If your TikTok is not successfully linked to your CapCut, you are likely to have issues with the usage of the two apps.

You may see the TikTok template option, but you will not have access to the page even if you click the option.

So, not installing and connecting your CapCut and TikTok is a major reason why your CapCut templates are not showing on your TikTok.


Outdated CapCut App

The outdated CapCut app is likely to have compatibility issues with your mobile device and Synchronization issues as well.

This is because outdated apps are susceptible to bugs and cannot sustain optimum performance.


Location Compatibility

Not all locations permit the use of CapCut and TikTok.

Therefore, if you are staying where there’s a ban or a form of restriction on either of the apps, especially CapCut, then you are not going to enjoy the perks that come with using the app, like making use of CapCut templates for creating your TikTok videos.


Scrolling Wrongly

Sometimes, CapCut/TikTok users make the mistake of checking for CapCut templates from the wrong place.

If you check for your CapCut templates from those videos that have been imported to the camera roll instead of from CapCut, even though you will find the videos, you will not be able to use them as a template on TikTok because the option will be missing.

While there are other reasons why you may be having difficulties accessing CapCut templates on TikTok, the ones explained above are the most common.

To cater to this problem, there are suggested fixes explained as you read further.

You can try one or a combination of these fixes depending on the factor influencing your CapCut templates not showing:


Good Internet Network

The first point of call for a fix will be to make sure your internet connectivity is strong.

If you are using a weak internet source, you should change your mobile connection source or get connected to Wi-Fi.

CapCut and TikTok Update

If any of your apps is not up-to-date, quickly fix that by updating your app to the newest version.

Getting this done is easy. For Android users, users visit your Play Store and check for notification updates.

When you do, the app will appear and below the app, you will find the Update option in place of the Install option.

Select the Update option and wait for the updating process to be completed.

After installing CapCut on your phone, do the following to connect the two apps for ease of access for both apps:

  1. Go to the “Me” icon at the bottom of the homepage and select the icon.

Then, go to your Apple Store and install the latest version of the app. When you log into your account, the cache and data will have been wiped off.


Grant Needed Apps Permissions

  1. Go to your Settings.
  2. Check out the App Management or App Permission section depending on your device.
