I edit with Premier Pro and Smartsound has a special plugin version for PP that allows you to open it up from within PP and generate your music that way. I have to say that this was one of my better decissions in regards to the music end of things. It is so flexible and versitile and the quality of the sound adds that much more quality to your projects. You need to buy a good cross section of the sound pallets and you will always be able to come up with the right music for the situtation in your video. What attracted me the most was that you can dictate the length and it will re-conform the music to fit the length you want.
Unfortunatly I’m pretty sure that they don’t have plugins available for the software you’re using. That’s not the end of the world for all that means is that you would have to buy the the whole Sonicfire Pro package and create you music outside of your current editing software. You still have the ability to create the different styles and lengths of music but I believe you have to import your movie file into it and from there you can start putting together the musical end of things on a make shift timeline they use. It’s pretty intuitive and I think you won’t be disappointed. Everyone that watches my work always comments on how professional it sounds. Believe it or not, the hardest part for me regarding this software is deciding what music to use during editing.
They have neat demos on their website that explain how it all works way better than I can. All I know is the results are outstanding. It does get a little expensive when you start adding more pallets to your collection but you can do that over time so it won’t hurt as much.
