  • set layer markers according to the beat
  • generate keyframes and animate to the beat
  • stagger layers according to the beat

The composition markers can easily be imported to Premiere Pro, as Eran Stern shows in his tutorial about Beat Assistant with Premiere Pro.

No expressions
You think animation to the music involves some weird expressions magic to tie your animation to audio keyframes? No, with beat assistant, you do it the mamoworld way: Animate all properties directly using intuitive interfaces.

Robust Beat Detection is achieved with the popular SoundTouch Audio Processing Library. While .wav files are supported natively, to work with .mp3 and .aif files, you need to install the separate tool LAME.
