Take the easy route and forget about the rest in this thread.....
Here is a step by step instruction how to install the Video and Slideshow Templates.
This applies to the free templates as well as for the PRO-templates.
1.) In Lightroom go to Edit -> Preferences
2.) On the tab "Presets" click on "Shot Lightroom Presets Folder"
3.) Open a second Explorer / Finder Window by double clicking on the downloaded archive with the templates, than drag the containing folders "Slideshow Templates" and "Video Templates" onto the "Lightroom" folder you located before.
If the templates folders not exist the will be created, if not you might get a message if you want to incorporate the new files into the persisting folders, say yes.
4.) This is what you get when finished:
Now close and reopen Lightroom and check if the templates are there:
1.) The Slideshow templates:
You will find them in the Slideshow modules under "User Templates"
2.) The Video templates:
Please note that the video templates do not appear under "User Templates"! -
You will find them inside the Drop-Down-Box of the Video-Export-Dialog after cllicking on "Export Video":
I hope I could help you with this detailed instructions.
TIP: If after installing the templates like described above they still don't appear in Lightroom, there is a trick: just "create" one template in the slideshow module on your own by clicking on the "+" beneath "Template Browser" - name it "test". Then close Lightroom and open again, now the templates should be visible. You can now delete the test template again (right mouse button).
