SoundTrack Pro & Garageband Loop Question

Just checking, but it is ok, right, to use SoundTrack Pro & Garageband loops in films without having to license them?

best,
elmer

How would we fill out a release form for songs made in these programs? Would we even have to?

I don't think that's necessary. The soundtrack is part of the other creative properties of your video that you own. It would be the same as the video you shoot and, the titles in the video etc. Think of it like the templates that come with a DVD authoring program or a NLE ...you have the rights to use those in a commercial production. Its all part of the licensing agreement when you bought the software

Whats really funny about Soundtrack is how many commercial companies actually use it in their regional and national adds. I'll be doing something else with the TV on and hear a familiar loop and be like "hey wait a minute."

Thanks much for the info!

Here's a little flick I made with Garageband music.

http://elmerlang.com/LBL.html

Any help with a couple problems would be appreciated.

Audio:
No matter what I do when compressing for web, the audio still grumbles and pops a bit more than I like. I tried lowering the overall volume, exporting as 44.1kHz, 48kHz, arg. PS: The Zoom H4 has pretty decent sound but can't say I'm completely satisfied.

Video:
Using HV20, 60i, IAF, self-shooting, swinging the prop in an arc: no matter how slow I swing it it won't stay in focus.

thanks again,
elmer

Yup, same here. It's funny how many people gravitate towards the same loops.

You're absolutely right. Though maybe like with Shakespeare and all his tired old recycled plots, it's not who uses the materials, it's who uses them best.
