New Features in PluralEyes 4

 

SIMPLER. FASTER. SMARTER. BETTER.

Syncing just got even easier. In previous versions of PluralEyes, there were over a dozen different sync combination possibilities (Try Really Hard, Change Clip Order...etc.), which meant you might have to run the sync several times before getting it right. In version 4.0, PluralEyes analyzes your footage and automatically uses the best possible options. Just hit the Sync button, and PluralEyes does the rest.


PREMIERE PRO PANEL

Get all the power and simplicity of syncing in PluralEyes without ever having to leave Premiere Pro. Just hit the Sync button in Premiere Pro, and PluralEyes does all the work. PluralEyes will even color code your footage based on the results of the sync, so that you know which clips, if any, need your attention.


SMART START

We’ve made importing media easier than ever. Drag and drop an entire folder of media into PluralEyes, and during a sync it will automatically detect which device the media came from. Your files will be sorted so that media from the same device are on the same track.

AUTOMATIC DRIFT CORRECTION

In long clips, sound and video can stop matching up perfectly. Unlike any other sync tool in the industry, PluralEyes can account for that and export a perfect sync. New in version 4, if drift is detected, PluralEyes automatically fixes it, and gives you the option to toggle between the drift corrected sync and the original audio without correction applied.


MUSIC VIDEO WORKFLOW

The latest version of PluralEyes includes a workflow for music videos, where talent has recorded with the same background audio in multiple takes or even in multiple locations. During the sync, PluralEyes can automatically consolidate takes on their own track, muting all audio but the master track.

CLIP SPANNING 

In order to overcome file size limits, some cameras can give a longer recording time by recording on multiple files or even multiple camera cards. PluralEyes can detect this, and consolidate spanned clips into a single clip, making working with the file much easier. New to the latest version of PluralEyes is spanning support for GoPro Cameras.


VERTICAL WAVEFORM SCALING

PluralEyes 4.0 adds the ability to scale audio waveforms vertically so that you can see more detail in the waveform when inspecting your media.

TRACK COMPARISONS

Select which audio waveform is shown next to the video track, making it easier to verify that the clips have synced properly.

OFFLOAD INTEGRATION

Red Giant Offload performs a checksum during media transfer from your camera card to your hard drive, giving you the peace of mind that your footage was backed up with no loss. New in PluralEyes 4.0 is the ability to detect Offload events and bring the footage over to PluralEyes for a seamless workflow between Offload to PluralEyes to the host-app.

KEYBOARD SHORTCUTS

PluralEyes now has the same keyboard shortcuts as Premiere Pro for a more intuitive, familiar timeline and playback experience.

COLOR CODING

Export from PluralEyes to Premiere Pro now features a color coding option for clips that don’t sync properly. This is also part of the Premiere Pro panel experience, but also happens if you sync in PluralEyes and export to Premiere Pro.

Sync that’s faster than a cup of coffee
Filmmakers and editors can lug the expensive, complicated gear of time code, a DSLR mic adaptor or a circa-1950s clapper—and then slog through synchronization manually. Or they can open PluralEyes, hit SYNC, and walk away. PluralEyes 3 is up to 20x faster than PluralEyes 2 and hundreds of times faster than the manual slog. Now you can create an audio/video sync in seconds, before that cup of coffee is even brewed.

Retrofitted to beautiful brilliance
PluralEyes 2 was a black box, simple but indispensable. PluralEyes 3 took all those brains and made it beautiful—and up to twenty times faster. With an interactive timeline, intuitive quality control, and playback/display options, our entirely new interface is easier to use, with visual feedback to move you confidently into post-sync creative editing. It’s the ultimate ‘fix it in post’ tool.

 

Freedom to focus on your film
PluralEyes 3 supports all kinds of work environments, from importing a native DSLR workflow to exporting media files for use in any NLE. Thanks to newly integrated DualEyes features, PluralEyes now works in a dedicated, standalone interface. This lets you set up faster and get solid footage with less gear and hassle, and enjoy using camera configurations that weren’t possible before. Remove the biggest barrier to focusing on your film: synchronization.

 

Give sync a speed turbo boost
PluralEyes 3 is up to 20x faster than PluralEyes 2. For the past three years, our team has worked with thousands of customers and looked at hundreds of real world projects to make PluralEyes 3 smarter and faster.

Enjoy the freedom of a new timeline
With its own timeline and NLE-independent features, PluralEyes 3 no longer relies on host apps to do the heavy lifting of post-production. Work with complete confidence knowing that your sync is perfect before you enter the editing process.

Watch audio and video sync in real time
Watch the sync unfold before your eyes—along with some geek excitement—as the clips rearrange themselves on the timeline as they sync. PluralEyes’ new UI also offers color-coded visual feedback that shows what's finished and what needs tweaking.

Take control of difficult syncs
For those truly stubborn sync problems, you can suggest a sync point and let PluralEyes do the rest. The Try Really Hard and Level Audio options are even better than before, giving PluralEyes another way to make decisions and find the sync.

Test your sync with confidence
Post-sync, a new set of quality control features include Two-Up View and flexible timeline scrubbing to compare audio and video waveforms simultaneously. You also get detailed Audio Waveform Display and Audio Gain/Zoom Controls to ensure precise sync results.

Tweak your sync to perfection
Also after the sync, the timeline offers new ways to refine with features like Snap Clip to Optimal Location and Synchronize Pair of Clips. This new range of quality control tools let you test, tweak, and move to your host app with confidence.

Export to the app that’s best for you
Thanks to newly integrated DualEyes features, PluralEyes exports its timeline directly to Final Cut Pro and Premiere Pro. The sync also exports media files for use in high-end systems like Smoke and Quantel or prosumer apps like iMovie.

Get more done with batch processing
PluralEyes 3 syncs multiple projects fast with batch processing and syncing in the background as you work. You’ll spend more time behind the camera than in front of the computer.

The more clips, the merrier
PluralEyes 3 works best with context, so it really excels when working with multiple clips and audio sources with extended durations. In fact, the more clips you give to PluralEyes 3, the more accurate its results will be.

Preserve your original clips
Even with all its new controls, PluralEyes 3 only works with references to your original clips. Just like PluralEyes 2, this amazing workflow is always non-destructive, so the sync preserves the original media files, projects and sequences.
