Red Giant today announced the release of Shooter Suite v13.0, which features the brand new PluralEyes v4.0, one of the (if not the) most popular and effective tools for syncing audio to multiple video streams. The standout new feature in v4.0 is the ability to sync with PluralEyes directly in Premiere Pro, without having to leave the application. Red Giant also has added Smart Start capabilities, automatic drift correction, vertical track scaling, integration with Red Giant Offload, and more simplicity and automation.
What’s New in PluralEyes 4.0
Syncing audio and video clips in PluralEyes is now easier than ever, with flawlessly synced media just a click away thanks to under the hood enhancements that allow PluralEyes to analyze footage and automatically choose the the best possible options, so the user doesn’t have to. Sporting a completely updated look, additional new features include:
Adobe Premiere Pro Panel
All the power and simplicity of syncing in PluralEyes without ever leaving Adobe Premiere Pro – just hit the sync button in the Premiere Pro Panel and PluralEyes takes care of the rest. Giving users ease of mind, PluralEyes in Premiere Pro offers the same color coding capabilities as it does in the standalone version, so editors will know which clips, if any, require attention.
Importing media is easier than ever with PluralEyes’ Smart Start feature. Drag and drop an entire folder of media into PluralEyes, and during a sync it will automatically detect which device the media came from. Your files will be sorted so that media from the same device are on the same track.
Automatic Drift Correction
When syncing long clips, sound and video can tend to stop matching up perfectly. PluralEyes can account for this and export a perfect sync with Automatic Drift Correction, announced in version 3.5. New in version 4, when drift is detected, PluralEyes will automatically fix it, then give editors the option to toggle between the drift-corrected sync and the original audio for comparison.
Color Coding for Unsynced Clips
An essential feature from the PluralEyes beginnings, color coded visuals show editors the progress of the sync, making it easy to make adjustments. Now, export from PluralEyes to Premiere Pro features a color coding option for clips that don’t sync properly.
Red Giant Offload Integration
Red Giant Offload performs a checksum during media transfer from camera card to hard drive, giving filmmakers the peace of mind that footage was backed up with no loss. PluralEyes 4.0 is able to detect Offload events and bring footage over, for a seamless workflow from Offload to PluralEyes to the host-app.
- PluralEyes now has the same keyboard shortcuts as Premiere Pro for a more intuitive, familiar timeline and playback experience.
- Vertical Track Scaling in PluralEyes 4.0 allows users to see more detail in the waveform when inspecting media.
- Users can easily compare tracks and verify the sync by selecting which audio waveform is shown next to the video track
- A brand new look that modernizes the application, keeping in line with the entire line of Red Giant tools.
