Company Profile

PluralEyes automatically synchronizes audio and video recordings without the need for timecode, slates, clappers or other traditional techniques. Instead, it analyzes the audio waveforms to find sync points. No special preparation is required while recording—the scratch audio from built-in camera mics is good enough. And if you have recorded high-quality audio separately, that can be synced in as well. Were the cameras turned on and off during the shoot? No problem, PluralEyes will find the right timing for them all.

THE RESULT is drastically simplified production, with no need to route microphone and synchronization cables to cameras. The time savings in post production are dramatic. Common uses for PluralEyes include:

  • multicamera productions such as weddings, concerts, presentations and corporate events
  • dual-system audio techniques, for example, to get high-quality sound for video recorded on DSLR cameras
  • multiple takes of repeated events such as music videos, dance and theater

PluralEyes integrates with video editing software and fits in naturally with the workflow. Versions are currently available for Apple Final Cut Pro and Sony Vegas Pro.

Learning to Love Final Cut Pro X
Scott Strimple | Apple has taken the time to reimagine Final Cut Pro in particular and the NLE user interface in general, which was based on the analog tape-to-tape model. Naturally, you cannot re-create 15 years of product development in just 2 short years without delivering a version 1 release that's missing some features of a mature NLE such as FCP7. Apple pretty much needed to take this leap if it wanted to continue to remain a player in the editorial world, and we have much more to gain than to lose from taking the leap with them.

Greg Lam | We've all seen the dazzling work of our peers who have taken the DSLR plunge, and thus have a good idea of what migrating to DSLR can do for our films and our businesses.
