You’ll wonder how you ever survived without it If you ever record dual-system audio or multiple camera angles without synchronized timecode, you’ll wonder how you ever survived without PluralEyes added to your editing software. Users of Premiere Pro CS5 for Mac who are aware of PluralEyes for other editing programs will be happy to know that a version of PluralEyes is now available for their preferred app too. This article will go over PluralEyes’ general features and then illustrate the specific workflow used with Premiere Pro CS5 compared to the way it works with other video editing software.
PluralEyes in a nutshell
An old adage says that a picture is worth a thousand words. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then I suppose we could calculate the value of a video clip by multiplying the duration (in seconds) * the framerate * 1000. The following video (courtesy of Singular Software) has a duration of 2:18 (two minutes and 18 seconds… or 138 seconds). So if we multiply the duration (138 seconds) * the framerate (29.97 per second) * 1000, we can conclude that this video is worth 4,135,860 words. I am only playing with numbers because I know that PluralEyes’ creator —Bruce Sharpe of Singular Software— is a revered mathematician. So don’t pay attention to my math and enjoy the video, courtesy of Singular Software: read more and watch the video...
