Audio/Video Syncing Software Delivers 20x Speed Increase and New Timeline-Based Interface for Edit-Ready Footage
Portland, OR (September 27, 2012) – Red Giant today announced the release of PluralEyes® 3 for Mac OS X, a major new upgrade to the industry’s most trusted audio/video syncing software. PluralEyes 3 automates audio/video synchronization in seconds, giving videographers and filmmakers edit-ready footage without clappers or timecode, and delivering up to a 20x speed increase over PluralEyes 2.
PluralEyes 3 now ships in a simple delivery of one package for one price and with one serial number. With this release, Red Giant has integrated features from DualEyes to create a standalone PluralEyes application that supports a broad range of filmmaking workflows including native DSLR, along with other cameras, file formats and codecs. A new timeline-based interface displays the syncing process for real time visual feedback, while new ‘test and tweak’ features give quality control and greater confidence in the sync.
To showcase PluralEyes 3, Webby Award-winning filmmaker Seth Worley has released his third short film for Red Giant, called Form 17 — a high-tension thriller about a bomb technician facing his most hazardous situation yet: Take Your Daughter To Work Day. With several cameras shooting at once and tons of fast-paced dialog, Seth puts PluralEyes 3 through its paces. Watch the film here http://redgiant.com/form17 and a Behind the Scenes video here http://www.redgiantsoftware.com/videos/redgianttv/item/331/.
Renowned director, DP and filmmaker Philip Bloom has been testing the new features in PluralEyes 3. “PluralEyes 3 is a massive improvement over the previous versions. A terrific new UI makes syncing sound to video not only a simple task, but it’s also fascinating to watch it at work as it shuffles things around visually.”
PluralEyes 3: What’s New
PluralEyes 2 revolutionized the post-production pipeline for audio and video syncing, allowing editors to finish their sync in seconds, rather than hours or days. Now PluralEyes 3 is blazingly fast, getting the sync done up to 20x faster. Other features include:
- Sync features all in one place. Red Giant’s integration of DualEyes features has created a standalone PluralEyes application, taking audio/video syncing out of the NLEs and into its own work environment.
- New interface with visual feedback. A brand new interface offers more confidence with a timeline and visual feedback. Users can identify sync problems and monitor the sync in real time.
- Bring quality control to the edit. New ‘test & tweak’ features offer important quality control options like Two-Up View and Snap to Sync, along with a visual timeline, for finished footage that’s ready for creative editing.
- Pays for itself in minutes. PluralEyes pays for itself in saved time on the first project, and is backed by Red Giant’s Red Pledge guarantee, giving support for all hosts for one price.
System Requirements, Pricing and Availability
PluralEyes 3 for Mac is available immediately and priced at $199.00 for new customers, and as a $79.00 upgrade for Plural Eyes 2 and DualEyes owners.
For added convenience, PluralEyes 3 also includes a copy of PluralEyes 2 and DualEyes, which provide support for Mac, Windows and all NLEs. For new customers, these tools give instant access to syncing on every platform and OS until the free PluralEyes 3 for Windows update is available.
