Okay, i'm about 95% finished, but I have one logo where it looks like the shadow is cropping it, there is a hard edge on the shadow that is very noticeable when I blur the shadow. The logo is an oval, and the left and right edges are flat. It also has words underneath it, and those have a hard edge on the shadow as well. The original file is cropped to the very edge of the logo, so do I need to remake the file with room around it, or is there a way to give it more room from Action?

Here is a screenshot of the logo in Action with the cropped shadow.

Also, is there a way to hear my reference audio when I'm in action, or would that not even be accurate because it won't play back the video in real time due to rendering, etc?

Also, in reference to my earlier question about extruding a logo, I know that photoshop will do that, will smoke accept 3d files from Photoshop, or do you know if photoshop will export in a file that smoke accepts?
