  • Now Supports Drift Compensation

Now featuring Drift Correction, PluralEyes 3.5 from Red Giant is an electronic download of software for automatically syncing double system audio with video. This is the academic version and is only available to academic institutions, professors, students and 501-C non-profits. PluralEyes 3.5 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 3.5 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 3.5 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.

Academic Version
This is the academic version and is only available to academic institutions, professors and students. 501-C non-profits may also qualify for the academic version.

What's New in 3.5?

The algorithm has been further refined to improve speed and accuracy.
In long clips, sound and video can stop matching up perfectly. Unlike many other sync tools, PluralEyes 3.5 can account for drift and ensure audio and video stay in sync for the duration.

General

OS Support
Supports Windows 7 & Windows 8 64-bit as well as Mac OS X 10.8 & OS X 10.9.
Feedback and Touch Up
Watch as your footage is being Synced. Color-coded visuals show the status of your footage so that you can easily identify and tweak any problems, after.
Preserve Original Clips
PluralEyes 3.5 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 3.5 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 3.5 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

PluralEyes 3.5 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 3.5 exports Quicktime, AVI, AIFF, and WAV files.
PluralEyes 3.5 interfaces with Final Cupt Pro and Premiere Pro, so you can have both your edit system and PluralEyes 3.5 open at the same time, and syncing done in PluralEyes updates in the NLE timeline.
PluralEyes 3.5 also works as a plug-in within Sony Vegas.

    PluralEyes is a synchronizing software that allows you to import project files with your footage in it and matches the video up to the audio. I've used PluralEyes in the past and I loved it so I decided to purchase it on my own. Plural eyes works really well and very quickly it aligns the audio with the video on dot. although the software works really well no software is complete without bugs. PluralEyes has a glitch between Avid media composer and itself. footage that's under a certain amount of time won't sync It might be a safety feature or my mic levels not so sure but it worked with premiere. but overall PluralEyes Delivers as stated with their Rapid speed Synchronization capabilities that shortens my work flow by 2 -5 hrs.

    Specifically got this product to sync audio with video on an Indie Film project. Because I purchased about 1/2 way into the project, I discovered the hard way that it works best to sync prior to editing footage. Dang. However, moving forward, it works like a charm. Drop in your video, drop in your audio files (don't need to organize at all), and hit go. Even if you have more audio files than video files, it syncs what is there. Amazing how fast it was too.

    Then export to your favorite NLE format and import into your NLE, and it just works. Pretty awesome.

    Drift correct was simple and automatic, at least seemed to be. I've only been using it for about a week, but completely sold. I wish I had purchased about 4 months ago...

    PluralEyes, and all of Red Giant's products, are amazing. If you do any video production this is a must have. Syncing audio recordings over video used to consume hours, even days, on each project. With PluralEyes I can import multiple video files and my audio track then like magic PluralEyes syncs the audio with all of the video clips to be exported in a single file... And, it does all of this in literally a few seconds. PluralEyes is saving me significant time in post production, thus saving me lots of money! PluralEyes paid for itself after only one single project. I would recommend this to everyone working with audio and video files needing to be in sync.

    It is a blessing to be able to take my audio recorder, and DSLR files, and auto sync them together. Especially when my video is in multiple takes, but I left the audio recorder going the whole time. Definitely cuts down on time spent in post.

      PluralEyes' video syncing works well with premiere creative cloud. It's quite fast. You use it to create a Multi-Clip sequence and import that to Premeire. It's an amazing time saver.
