First Look: Red Giant PluralEyes 4

How PluralEyes 4 Works
Basically, PluralEyes 4 will automatically ingest, organize and sync your media files and export them to your NLE project synced and ready to edit. Using the specular audio data, PluralEyes will match up the raw video and audio clips from your production and sync them. Then you can chose to export directly to FCP X or Adobe Premiere Pro or save the video and audio files out to work with any NLE, such as Sony Vegas Pro.
Of course, all your video must have some kind of audio track to perform the sync, but in my tests, even GoPro footage was easily synced with both DSLR and EXCAM clips along with a mixed audio track in a 5-cam multicam production with ease.
The PluralEyes 4 Three-Step Sync Workflow
Red Giant really streamlined PluralEyes 4's UI and workflow and ease of use, while providing greater performance of sync capabilities of multicam productions. Simpler single cam and audio recorder shoots such as multi-clip DSLR interviews with an audio recorder can all be synced quickly - often in just seconds.
When you start PluralEyes 4, its main window appears. This simplified design takes you through the step-by-step process of importing media files, synchronizing them and exporting the synched clips. While there are three tabs across the top of the top of the window, only the Add Media tab is highlighted until your project has media imported to it and ready to start synchronizing. You simply drag-drop your media folders or files onto the window and PluralEyes 4 will begin ingesting and organizing the files into separate tracks, ready to sync. - See more at: http://www.provideocoalition.com/first-look-red-giant-pluraleyes-4#sthash.LvFn3xg4.dpuf...[continue reading]
