PluralEyes premiere pro

Features

Simpler. Faster. Smarter. Better.

Syncing just got even easier. In previous versions of PluralEyes, there were over a dozen different sync combination possibilities (Try Really Hard, Change Clip Order...etc.), which meant you might have to run the sync several times before getting it right. In version 4.0, PluralEyes analyzes your footage and automatically uses the best possible options. Just hit the Sync button, and PluralEyes does the rest.

Instant Feedback

Watch as your footage is being Synced. Color-coded visuals show the status of your footage so that you can easily identify any problems that might need some attention on your NLE's timeline.

Premiere Pro Panel

Get all the power and simplicity of syncing in PluralEyes without ever having to leave Premiere Pro. Just hit the Sync button in Premiere Pro, and PluralEyes does all the work. PluralEyes will even color code your footage based on the results of the sync, so that you know which clips, if any, need your attention.

Smart Start

We’ve made importing media easier than ever. 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

In long clips, sound and video can stop matching up perfectly. Unlike any other sync tool in the industry, PluralEyes can account for that and export a perfect sync. New in version 4, if drift is detected, PluralEyes automatically fixes it, and gives you the option to toggle between the drift corrected sync and the original audio without correction applied.

Music Video Workflow (NEW)

The latest version of PluralEyes includes a workflow for music videos, where talent has recorded with the same background audio in multiple takes or even in multiple locations. During the sync, PluralEyes can automatically consolidate takes on their own track, muting all audio but the master track.

Clip Spanning (NEW)

In order to overcome file size limits, some cameras can give a longer recording time by recording on multiple files or even multiple camera cards. PluralEyes can detect this, and consolidate spanned clips into a single clip, making working with the file much easier. New to the latest version of PluralEyes is spanning support for GoPro Cameras.

Vertical Waveform Scaling

PluralEyes 4.0 adds the ability to scale audio waveforms vertically so that you can see more detail in the waveform when inspecting your media.

Track Comparisons

Select which audio waveform is shown next to the video track, making it easier to verify that the clips have synced properly.

Offload Integration

Red Giant Offload performs a checksum during media transfer from your camera card to your hard drive, giving you the peace of mind that your footage was backed up with no loss. New in PluralEyes 4.0 is the ability to detect Offload events and bring the footage over to PluralEyes for a seamless workflow between Offload to PluralEyes to the host-app.

Keyboard Shortcuts

PluralEyes now has the same keyboard shortcuts as Premiere Pro for a more intuitive, familiar timeline and playback experience.

Color Coding

Export from PluralEyes to Premiere Pro now features a color coding option for clips that don’t sync properly. This is also part of the Premiere Pro panel experience, but also happens if you sync in PluralEyes and export to Premiere Pro.

Reasons To Buy

  • Eliminate the pain of manual syncing. Turn what used to be hours or days of data wrangling into seconds. Free up time, budget and resources to focus on the creative art of visual storytelling.
  • Pays for itself in minutes. Now a part of the Red Giant family, PluralEyes includes DualEyes functionality for one price, on all hosts, in one package. Wow.
  • Less gear for more creativity. Hang that clapper on your office wall as an antiquated objet d’art. Shoot with a revitalized, lighter footprint.
  • Works with your favorite cameras. PluralEyes works fluidly with native file formats from DSLR cameras like Canon, Nikon and GoPro, and supports a broad range of other cameras, file formats and codecs. Learn more
  • Export to the NLEs you need. Thanks to integrated DualEyes features, PluralEyes exports its timeline directly to Final Cut Pro and Premiere Pro, and exports media files for use in every host application.

What's New

PluralEyes 4.1.3

  • NEW: Support for FCPXML 1.6 which was introduced in FCPX 10.3
  • Resolves an issue in macOS 10.12 that caused the PluralEyes 4 video player to freeze up.
  • Improved support for multi-channel audio recorders including Zoom, Tascam, Roland and Sound Devices
  • Improved the performance of PluralEyes 4’s panel for Adobe Premiere Pro
  • Improved handling of network drives on Windows

Red Giant Plural Eyes 4.1.2

  • Support Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2017
  • Support for MAGIX Vegas Pro 14
  • Support for RED WEAPON and RED RAVEN .R3D media
  • Better support for multi-channel media (previously if the first channel was silent, PE4 would show a silent clip)
  • New Track-level Sync Options – Two new options have been added to the the track context menu to provide better manual control of sync behaviour when needed: “Allow Sync to Change Clip Order” and “Allow Sync to Split Tracks.” By default they are set automatically based on PluralEyes’  analysis of the files, but the user can override the automatic setting.
  • Better support for audio recording file naming, which can include a suffix that specifies the audio source e.g. The ZOOM H4N will add an “I” or “M” character to each file when recording in 4 channel mode, to indicate which of the two stereo inputs the file comes from.  PluralEyes 4.1.2 now detects such cases during the sync, and splits them onto separate tracks.
  • Better support for audio recorders that place each audio clip in a separate folder (e.g. Roland R26, ZOOM H5, ZOOM H6). Previously PE4 would incorrectly split these into separate tracks, with one clip per track.
  • BUG FIX: Fixed an issue where PE4 shows a grey screen upon launch

Red Giant Plual Eyes 4.1

Red Giant Plural Eyes 4.0.4

Bug fixes and changes:

  • Updated playhead interaction so that clicking on a clip won’t reset the position of the playhead.
  • Fixed an issue in the .xml file created by PluralEyes that could cause an import fail in Premiere Pro if there was a symbol (such as “&”) in the media file path.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause PluralEyes 4 to crash while importing files with a long digit sequence in the file name.
  • Resolved installation errors that could cause an “installation failed” message.

Customer Reviews

Great Software, takes all the tedious mind numbing self syncing out of the picture leaving you with the joy of editing your project without worrying if your files are unsynced. also corrects audio drift instantly which is a godsend as in the past I've had to correct/completely cut parts out with audio drift

PE3 on Sony Vegas not reliable - Use PE2

I can't vouch for other NLEs however PE3 on Sony Vegas has not worked well since it's release. The general consensus on the Sony forums is to use PE2 (5 stars) - it works very well, which has always been my experience.
