Singular Software, developer of automation applications for post-production, is offering a beta version (http://www.singularsoftware.com/downloads.html) of the next release (1.2) of its flagship product PluralEyes for Final Cut Pro.
The new version will include improved workflow for dual-system audio, clock drift correction, increased synchronization control, broader coverage of media types and customer-requested enhancements. It does not overwrite the previously installed PluralEyes 1.1, and can run alongside that version. Just remember that beta software is unfinished software, so use with care.
Designed for time-conscious video professionals, PluralEyes offers workflow automation tools for analyzing media content and synchronizing audio and video clips, including DSLR (digital single lens reflex) camera images. The new PluralEyes plug-in for Vegas Pro provides an array of features for managing multi-camera, multi-take, and dual-system audio productions; including a level audio option, preserving the order of clips, and clip locking for seamless integration into existing workflows, says Bruce Sharpe, CEO, Singular Software.
The PluralEyes application accelerates the workflow for multi-camera, multi-take and dual-system audio productions, he adds. By analyzing audio information, PluralEyes synchronizes audio and video clips automatically, without the need for time code, clappers or other special preparation. Optimized for fast performance on both Mac and PC platforms, PluralEyes supports both Vegas Pro and Final Cut Pro.
PluralEyes for Final Cut Pro costs US$149. A fully functional, 30-day trial version is available for download.
