That was really good.
The only thing is the ending was abrupt, but I'm sure your final will fade out.

Hey, what was the bright keys you used. Those sounded cool.

Thanks gabgar!

The keys are from the Kontakt factory bells, celesta and Granduer (Granduer not part of factory library). I used the tubular bells (chimes), too. I also used marimba.

Like you said, some of the transitions not quite on the change of picture. So I fixed that, kinda. I must admit, I really don't know what I'm doing when it comes to writing for picture. This is a first.

Wow, now that's good except for the cymbal at :33 seconds. Let it fade out, it played then stopped too quickly.

Regarding your one comment about adjusting to scenes.
If it can be done great, but don't try to focus on that too much because when I do that, I never get anything done because I get frustrated at not handling the transitions between scenes.
It got to the point with me that I developed some software to convert video to midi to get the transitions, then I worked off that midi.
It's a work in progress with that software, right now it's based on the color of the video, that's how I can detect the scene changes.

So true! lol. I was thinking the same thing. I wanted something, but a cymbal choke is strange. I'm going to change that and repost. Thanks gabgar! Also, thanks for the tips.
