Believe it or not I think tiny little PluralEyes 3.0 is the NAB 2012 product I’m most looking forward to using.
One of my favorite products being shown at NAB 2012 is the upcoming PluralEyes 3.0 from Singular Software. Many of use have been using PluralEyes for a lot of years now in all of our NLEs but when PluralEyes 3.0 ships, probably this summer, you’ll see a totally different and cleverly redesigned application.
People often call PluralEyes a plug-in for the various NLEs it supports but it has always been a standalone application that integrated with its host application by import/export of timeline data. Create a timeline, stack up your video and audio angles and PluralEyes will use an XML or AAF from your host NLE depending on what you’re using. It sends a new XML or AAF back into the NLE that is the timeline in sync.
It works quite well but for version 3.0 of PluralEyes they’ve remade it into a totally different application. That means PluralEyes is more than just a dialog box with a few settings. It now uses its own timeline, it’s own viewing window and all your syncing, slipping and adjusting can be performed right in the application. When you’re done then export to the desired NLE. read more...
