hello, a while ago i uploaded a video to youtube with music in it and you tube cut the audio and told me i cant use that music due to copy rite issues, i am wondering how i am suppose to know what music i am allowed to put in a video and what music i am not.

but then a few days alter i saw a video with that music i wanted to use on it. So i am just a bit confused now haha

Yeah they do some funky stuff over there it seems.
If you don't pay for the rights to the music then you don't have a right to use the music in your video.
There seem to be variances in how much of a song you use, if the song has voice overs (so it can't be copied), and if you have an ad/link to encourage people to purchase the song.
But I have no idea where the line is drawn about play length time or to go about getting one of those ads.

Your best bet is to look for royalty free stuff.

afair , TheirTube has some free and audio clips ( several genres ) from which to chose and attach to your video ...

Vimeo will not track copyrighted music. I've gotten past youtube's song recognition by upping or lowering the pitch (which of course ruins the song.) Observe:

write your own music!
it's fun and quite rewarding just like 3d is!
...if you have a mac and so garageband you'll find it pretty simple to get some stuff together yourself.

if your only on a windows machine then i'd reccomend

killerbean's music track were written by the animator...so could you then!

Cool .... :)

A friend has made some real nice sound trax with no vocals
I asked him if I could use them in some animations and he said no problem
Just credit the music to his name
And that is so cool.....

free sound traxs ..... hmmmmmm ...... searching while LW is busy busy ....

if your a non musican, i'd go with the same software as Jeff Lew chose - Acid Pro.

there's several versions out so try the cheapest first such as ACID Music Studio 8 for 45

Yes, I recommend Acid 7 too! I use the Pro version but even the 'consumer' version works very well. Both are easy to learn and use. (If you can use a video editor, you can use this program.)

i have Reaper , Orion + Fruity .

at the beginning , one of the reasons i got 2nd and 3rd was just this prob ( audio tracks for video-uploading ) , while the 1st i got for work , but use for fun too .

i didn't had much time , but once i start my own web ( soon maybe ) , i'll upload some audios available for free to the People .

making music for your own curiosity and pleasure is funny =) , helping should be a plus .


( i'll post a link when ready )

there's a little hack for getting music onto YT ,YT uses very clever software which efficiently listens to the track and recognizes the audio , if you have an audio editing package you add "ghost noise " which gimps YT :rock: see google for more info

what file UPLOAD size would you consider big enough for your demo reel .?
vague question , but I am working on something which enables users to upload media , thinking about server and max file upload size ?

demo reels are usually less than 180 seconds long and if your target audience is studio's for jobs they mute the audio 9 times out of 10 when viewing, the 1 out of 10 would be for any lip sync'd demo sections.

if your demo reel is for general consumption then yup..music can really help set the tone.

regards the start and end...get your reel going quick..don't type a novel's worth of text before it rolls...title, year, name...GO!
end> contact details.

regard's any lipsync...remember we live in a multi language world so lip sync whilst important is not THAT important compared to poses and emotions in your characters.

100% crack on English lipsync will do nothing for the french/german/italian/russian/japanese/korean dubs....:D

I use SONAR X1 from Cakewalk (http://www.cakewalk.com) to make the music for The SoundTraxx Music Library.
