Red Giant Ships PluralEyes 3 for Mac OS X
New Version of Audio/Video Synching Software Features a Faster Timeline-Based Interface
Red Giant has begun shipping PluralEyes 3 for Mac OS X, which the company says brings with it 20 times faster processing for preparing edit-ready footage. The new version was demonstrated during NAB and automates audio/video synchronization in mere seconds.
PluralEyes 3 for the Mac, the first standalone version of the product, combines elements from DualEyes to give the synching software support of a much broader selection of camera file formats, including DSLR. It also introduces a new timeline-based view. Following Red Giant's partnership with Singular Software, the development team integrated features from DualEyes to give users access to a more robust package in one version with a single, convenient serial number.
The company says that new visually-based tools, including a "Test & Tweak" feature with a Two-Up View and Snap to Sync, vastly accelerate the time it takes to lock down your sync and head into the edit.
New PluralEyes customers can buy PluralEyes 3 for the Mac for $199. Existing PluralEyes 2 and DualEyes owners can upgrade for only $79. There is no Windows version or support for Avid Media Composer yet, but the new package does bundle a copy of PluralEyes 2 and DualEyes, both of which run on Windows and support a wider range of NLEs. If you're on Windows and decide to upgrade now, you'll receive free updates when the Windows version and MC support become available.
