Leading us into the weekend on a high, Red Giant have announced their “blazingly fast” new release, PluralEyes 3 for Mac OS X. Available for £115 ex VAT for new users or as a paid upgrade for PluralEyes 2 or DualEyes users.
The new features
Red Giant have gleefully announced that PluralEyes 3 is possibly the fastest audio/video syncing automation solution of all time, apparently clocking in at speeds 20 times faster than PluralEyes 2. They’ve also added support for new cameras and codecs, including many new DSLRs, and Media Composer compatibility is set to arrive as a free upgrade to PluralEyes 3 soon.
Red Giant have also been hard at work on a new timeline-based interface, which gives you realtime feedback on all your syncs, and a ‘test and tweak’ feature that’s designed to give to you more confidence in your sync, inluding Two Up View and Snap to Sync controls.
Responses so far…
You can get the inside scoop on the update over at RedGiantTV, where Seth Worley has made a short film, Form 17, and accompanying making-of. Director, DP and all-round video guru Philip Bloom has been testing PluralEyes 3 too, and has given it a cracking reference.
“PluralEyes 3 is a massive improvement over the previous versions. A terrific new UI makes syncing sound to video not only a simple task, but it’s also fascinating to watch it at work as it shuffles things around visually.”
