Red Giant releases PluralEyes 4.1

The new release of Red Giant’s 4.1 update to PluralEyes not only makes syncing multiple video tracks automatic, but does it for more NLE’s and even spans long takes across multiple files.

“The greatest feature of Red Giant’s latest 4.1 update to their PluralEyes audio/video syncing tool is time,” Aharon Rabinowitz, head of marketing at Red Giant told The Broadcast Bridge . “The time it saves from one of the most tedious chores in cutting music videos.”

With this latest release, an editor simply has to dump all the clips from a music video session into PluralEyes, audio and video, and tell PluralEyes software that these clips are music video takes. The software will automatically separate the video clips into separate tracks and will sync them all together to the master audio track.

“In addition, once you have identified the takes that will be used in the final cut,” Rabinowitz said, “You can select multiple leftover clips and delete them all at once before exporting the project to an NLE. Again, a tremendous time saver because nothing comes into your edit session that is not needed.”

Red Giant's PluralEyes 4.1 update can span multiple files of a GoPro recording. The red arrow marks the break.

PluralEyes 4.1 can also solve the problem caused by some cameras that record longer recording times on multiple files or even multiple camera cards by detecting the interruption and consolidating the spanned clips into one. This will be especially useful with version 4.1’s support for GoPro cameras.

Also, adding to its growing list of supported NLE’s PluralEyes 4.1 can now export a synced project as an FCP 7 XML file to Grass Valley’s EDIUS Pro 7.5 and 8.

Finally, as Rabinowitz tells us,“Version 4.1 gives you the option of turning off sync drift correction in cases where it’s not needed,” he said. “Sync drift correction is only available in PluralEyes.”
