SmartSound Software Inc. has announced that Avid Technology has integrated technology from SmartSound into its
new Avid Liquid product line. This integration allows users access to custom-fit musical compositions for their soundtracks using SmartSound’s technology without leaving their Avid Liquid workspace.
Drawn from editing products formerly developed by Pinnacle Systems Inc. (including Pinnacle Liquid Edition), Avid Liquid is the company’s new nonlinear editing software and hardware offering for event videographers, government and corporate video producers, and high-end enthusiasts. The new release of Avid Liquid shows that SmartSound’s technology is rapidly becoming an essential component of any major nonlinear editing system’s audio solution.
SmartSound’s technology gives Avid Liquid users multiple arrangements of every track in SmartSound’s royalty-free library, precisely edited to fit the length of any scene without altering the tempo. The arrangements are complete musical compositions, with true beginnings and endings. This gives filmmakers enhanced flexibility and productivity when working with music throughout the editing process.
