Product Highlights
  • Picture/Audio Sync Application
  • Syncs 20x Faster Than PluralEyes 2

PluralEyes 3 from Red Giant is an electronic download of software for automatically syncing double system audio with video, and features a speed increase of up to 20x over PluralEyes 2. PluralEyes 3 is compatible with both Mac and Windows platforms. The software imports your footage into its own timeline and automatically syncs the video from a single or multiple cameras to simultaneously recorded audio. Automatic syncing is accomplished by the software lining up the audio waveforms of the audio and video files, so for PluralEyes to work you must record an audio scratch track with your video footage. PluralEyes is able to import/export timelines from/to Final Cut Pro, Premiere Pro, Media Composer, and Vegas Pro. You can also export .mov or .avi media files for use in other programs.

PluralEyes works with references to your original clips, so even though the clips are synced up, the workflow itself is non-destructive; your original media is unaffected. Even when exporting your clips as .mov or .avi, PluralEyes 3 is creating new media, and not adjusting the original files. Manual adjustment tools allow you to tweak the sync if you feel it needs adjustment, as well as work with PluralEyes tools to sync problematic clips. The new "Do it for me" workflow option allows you to let PluralEyes establish sync points, without your organizing the footage beforehand. PluralEyes 3 comes with two licenses so you can load the software on a workstation for when you are in the office, and a laptop for location work. Red Giant provides free support, and is available during business hours by email, chat, and phone.

General

OS Support
Now Supports Windows 7 & Windows 8 as well as Mac OSX 7.5 & OSX 8.
Speed Increase
PluralEyes 3 is up to 20x faster than version 2 and features intuitive quality control and playback/display options.
Preserve Original Clips
PluralEyes 3 only works with references to your original clips in a non-destructive workflow that preserves your original media files.
Fast Automatic Sync
PluralEyes automatically syncs picture and audio, saving you time and sparing you the frustration of slipping picture and audio tracks trying to align waveforms manually or matching lip sync.
Resolve Sync Problems
PluralEyes works with a default setting for fast results that works for most footage. However for footage that is difficult to sync up using the default settings, settings such as "Try Really Hard" and "Level Audio" provide more in depth processing, although the process will take longer.
Test Your Sync
After your sync, you can employ Two-Up View, flexible timeline scrubbing, and other quality control features 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
Also after the sync, quality control tools like Snap Clip to Optimal Location and Synchronize Pair of Clips, will let you test, tweak, and refine your sync.
"Do It For Me" Workflow
This feature allows you to import clips and let PluralEyes find the sync relation between them. You don't have to organize your footage before having PluralEyes work on it.
Broad Camera & Format Support
PluralEyes 3 supports footage from a wide variety of cameras, including Canon, Nikon and GoPro, and formats support including MOV, MXF, P2, and XDCAM.
Batch Processing
Sync multiple projects fast with batch processing and syncing in the background as you work.
Multi-Clip Precision
PluralEyes 3 excels when working with multiple clips and audio sources with extended durations. The more clips you have, the more accurate results will be.

Standalone Mode

PluralEyes3 functions as a standalone application with its own timeline and sync tools. This frees you from having to open your editing program, import the footage and sync. You can sync your footage before you start the editing process, even before you've hired an editor.
Once your footage is in sync, you can import the PluralEyes timeline into Final Cut Pro, Premiere Pro, Media Composer, and Vegas Pro.
You can even export your clips as .mov or .avi media that can be imported into most NLE systems as well as high end finishing systems such as Quantel and Smoke, or even imported into iMovie. PluralEyes 3 exports Quicktime, AVI, AIFF, and WAV files.
PluralEyes 3 interfaces with Final Cupt Pro and Premiere Pro, so you can have both your edit system and PluralEyes 3 open at the same time, and syncing done in PluralEyes updates in the NLE timeline.
PluralEyes 3 also works as a plug-in within Sony Vegas.
Additional Software
Your download of PluralEyes 3 also includes both PluralEyes 2 and DualEyes. You can have both versions of PluralEyes open at the same time.

        Keeps you moving

        By Joe Lav

        from Lynbrook

        Comments about Red Giant PluralEyes 3 (Download):

        I like it except the audio on all cams should all be very similar and at the same level to get accurate sync. ..If not it's problematic. It crashes as well when you push it too hard other than that it does what's advertised...quick and efficient sync when planned out correctly during production.

        Comments about Red Giant PluralEyes 3 (Download):

        We use this product for syncing DSLR scratch audio tracks with separately recorded, multitrack audio WAV files.

        The software generally does a good job of matching the two up, and you can tweak what it did after the fact.

        The only shortcoming we found is more of a "wish it did..." feature request than a true complaint, but buyers should be aware that the software does not take timecode into account in any way. Even if you had timecode which would guarantee a perfect sync, the software will ignore it and try to sync by audio waveforms alone.

        Aside from that, it's doing the job and doing it much faster than could be done by hand.
