Red Giant PluralEyes 4 Overview

Red Giant PluralEyes enables you to sync video footage with externally recorded sound at the press of a button in just seconds, as long as you simultaneously also recorded the sound in-camera. It does this by matching up the waveforms of the external recording to the in-camera recording.

PluralEyes 4 is standalone software, not a plug-in, and therefore imports video and audio data directly from your computer and can export the synced up file to virtually any editing system. It's also capable of importing timeline sequences directly from Premiere Pro and Sony Vegas and then exporting them back out to these editors after you've made your syncs. The application has a feature called the Premiere Pro Panel, which allows you to export to PluralEyes, sync, and then import back into Premiere right from Premiere. The Premiere Pro Panel opens up PluralEyes for you and lets you work from inside Premiere.

During the syncing process, you can watch as your footage and audio are being synced, and color-coded visuals show the status of your footage so you can easily identify any problems that might need some attention on your NLE's timeline.

1) Your download will provide you with the latest version of PluralEyes 4. 2) PluralEyes is currently not fully compatible with Final Cut Pro 10.6 and later.
What's New in Version 4?

Syncing Is 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, 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. The Premiere Pro Panel allows you to export timeline sequences to PluralEyes, perform your syncs, and then import back into Premiere - all right from Premiere. Additionally, 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
Importing media is now easier than ever. Drag-and-drop an entire folder of media into PluralEyes, and during a sync PluralEyes 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, the sound and video can get out of sync. PluralEyes has always been capable of accounting for this problem and exporting a perfect sync. But now, in version 4, if PluralEyes detects a drift, it will automatically fix it. And you get the option of toggling between the corrected sync and the original audio without correction applied.

Vertical Waveform Scaling
PluralEyes 4 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, and you'll be able to more easily 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 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 4 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.

pluraleyes was the best program for syncing audio and video clips. It was hands down the best. fast forward a few years and it was bought and sold then left on the shelf. Now it's unusable full of errors and not supported. hasn't been updated in a long time.

Simply amazing software

I just got into the wedding video business not long ago and I use FCPX for editing videos, even FCPX has a multican function, but it will take me a long time to sync all the videos I recorded from the wedding. After doing some research, I decided to get PluralEye 4. After first time use, I was blown away, it only took less than a few minutes to sync all my videos, and I have 4 cameras with 7 hours of wedding coverage, that's a lot of videos. If you need software to sync your videos or you are in the wedding video business, I highly recommend this software, you won't regret it!

Thoroughly impressed by this game changer of a software!

Why oh why did I wait so long to buy this software? As I ventured into wedding cinematography a year ago, I have been slaving away to try to sync all the audio and video files together, having several lavs, a ZOOM H5 and a zillion short clips capturing every detail of the wedding, guests and settings. A FULL DAY'S SHOOT worth of it. Now with a click of a button, PluralEyes does everything for me. I am a VEGAS PRO user and I was not altogether convinced when I first downloaded PluralEyes. But since they offer a fully operational trial version I figured all I had to lose is a little time, right? But I didn't have to invest ANY time to learn how to use it as a very concise and helpful video showed me step by step how to use this software with Vegas. I found myself installing and using it from minute ONE like I had used it all my life. So far so good. No brains required, the software does EVERYTHING for you. One click and you are done. So far even better! PluralEye does take a little time to analyze all the clips to prepare them for sync, but once that is done the sync itself is fast. I synced an entire day worth of footage and audio in less than 10 minutes, the time it took for me to walk away and go make myself a cup of brew :) while PluralEye did my all work for me hehehe... I have used it on several projects now and it has not yet failed me (no erroneous syncs). Sometimes it can't figure out where a clip should go, but that's rare. Usually it is because there aren't enough distinct sound waves in the video clip to be matched (example: indistinct crowd murmur, car traffic, complete silence, etc). The only thing I wish they would add is the ability to have the software place all the un-synched clips on a different track above the exact location they initially were on my timeline.... Instead of shlapping them at the end of the track. At least I don't think the option is available but I honestly haven't looked into it yet. I'm gonna contact them and see if they will add it in a future update (if it is not already available as a user option) CONCLUSION: if you are like me, shooting events, or projects with lots of takes and audio captured separately, THEN THIS ONE IS A MUST HAVE. My only regret: I didn't buy it sooner!!!

Ive had this product for a while now and have yet to have it work in syncing a recorded audio track (from the sound board) to the in-camera recorded audio but ONE time.  I have written a number of service requests to the Red Giant folks, but have had no success in getting a resolution. As a point to note, Premier Pro has worked for that purpose perfectly hundreds of times during that same period of time. B&H has amazing customer service...Red Giant, not so much.

The download came to my inbox immediately and I got to use my B&H credits towards it, so it cost me half the price. Understand that it's completely different than the sync feature in premier pro. I line up cam A on one track, cam B on a second track, the sound and visuals are perfectly synced so I just edit by jumping back and forth between the two cameras. Saves SO MUCH TIME.

If you need to sync audio and video... you need this.

Not much else I can say other than the headline, but this tool is amazing. I shoot weddings so I have several camera angles/audio recording devices that need to be synced. With just a few drags and clicks I can get everything I need done within a matter of minutes. My ONLY negative is that the download process could be a bit smoother.

Easy to use and works great
