Jazz Intro Music (Track 10)

I am in the middle of working on a longer song, but here is an upbeat jazz theme that you can use in video intros and outros, credit sequences or short animations. There are eight different versions of this 18-second song. The music is free for non-commercial use; just providecredit: music by longzijun (see the Terms of Use for more information.). 

There are eight different arrangements of this jazz instrumental. This is a loop based instrumental (i.e., the music is put together by combining pre-recorded snippets of the individual instruments.)

Visuals

Coming up with interesting visuals that don’t take too long to make is always a challenge for me. I would prefer to concentrate on the music.The video was produced by creating a short animation in iClone, a 3D animation programme that comes with some preset movements. You just need to bring in some 3D characters and then apply the movements to them.

I then exported the animation and ran it through various video effects filters in Adobe Premiere Pro to create a 2D effect. I used Threshold to turn the animation into a two-tone black and white video and then added different combinations of other effects such as Invert, Find Edges, Paint Brush, Mosaic, Equalize, Texturize, Emboss and Mirror. I had previously experimented with iClone to do things like opening credits sequences. If you are interested in seen what the animation looks like in 3D, you can check out my work on this page: Animation tests with iClone 3.
