SmartSound has released a set of three video tutorials showing a new royalty free music workflow for Adobe After Effects CS5 users.  

SmartSound’s Sonicfire Pro 5.5 Scoring Edition offers several workflow options designed to make it easy for an After Effects user to create compelling soundtracks that are synchronized to their visuals. The free video tutorials can be watched at SmartSound’s web site (

In addition to automatically delivering music in custom lengths, SmartSound enables control of the music arrangement and instrument mix for a customized end result.  All of these features are available in a roundtrip workflow that allows unlimited fine-tuning of the music without the need to save any project files in Sonicfire Pro.

The video tutorials were created by Jeff Foster, an video producer and author/educator on video topics including Adobe After Effects. He’s an Adobe Certified Expert and has served as an instructor and featured speaker at many video industry conferences.
