Choosing music for clips?

Postby Tcrumpen on 02/3/2015, 2:25 pm

OK so as i'm thinking about possibly doing AE more than a hobby should i decide i like doing i need to get a few things sorted, one of which is deciding on music

Now am i right in thinking that Royalty Free music is ok to use, if so can anyone link/recommend some good sites, as i'm also done with my title screen and would like to get some music in the background so it isn't just quiet

Royalty-free basically means an individual or an organisation can use a clip in a production without having to pay ongoing fees based on how many times it's shown, or heard, or how many copies of the production are sold or rented. It doesn't automatically mean that it's 'free' to use or that you can just go ahead and use it. You'll usually have to pay a license fee to use it and it might be limited to certain uses etc. Audiojungle is a good one, affordable and plenty of decent sound effects too....

Hope that helps.

My list of recommendations is as follows:
taketones.com
premiumbeat
musicvine
On each of the sites collected really cool and original music, it is a little different in nature from each other, it's still different sites)
