After the Final Cut Pro X software, it’s the turn of PluralEyes to support footage from multiple cameras. The new plug-in lets video editors synchronize multiple video and audio tracks by analyzing each track’s sound.
The latest update of Final Cut Pro X added new multi-camera editing features, and these are now fully supported by PluralEyes, Singular Chief Executive Bruce Sharpe in said a statement. He said:
We created this update in response to many requests from FCP X users who are familiar with our automatic synchronization products from other platforms, said Sharpe. The built-in sync feature in FCP X is a start, but PluralEyes works across the entire range of projects that people want to edit in FCP X, without the need for timecode, markers or any special preparation. And it’s fast too.
In addition to creating synced projects and multicam clips, PluralEyes offers a Replace Audio capability that is especially handy for dual-system audio projects. PluralEyes also offers an alternative interface that some people prefer for getting the sync done–you work in a timeline rather than in an event with added metadata.
PluralEyes is the robust application that it is because it has been refined based on the feedback and data of thousands of editors using it every day for real-world projects for the three years that it has been on the market, Sharpe said.
The PluralEyes plug-in also works with Adobe Systems’ Premiere Pro, Sony’s Vegas Pro, Avid’s Media Composer, and Grass Valley’s Edius. The software costs $150.
