Syncaila

MULTI-CAMERA AUTO-SYNC TOOL

Syncaila is a professional tool for video editors, which performs a fully automatic synchronization of video and audio footage from multiple cameras and recorders. No timecode needed.


Highlights

Save your time and energy on creative tasks

The purpose of Syncaila is to free the editor from the manual synchronization when dealing with multiple takes from cameras and audio sources.  It saves a lot of time and effort for maximum concentration on the creative editing tasks.

3 Simple Steps

  • Open – Export XML from your editing program and import it into Syncaila
  • Sync – Click the Synchronization button in Syncaila
  • Save – Export XML from Syncaila and import it back into your editing program

The most advanced level of synchronization

Quality

  • Human logic simulation – Unique algorithms that simulate human logic and the working process of the video editor
  • Attention to chronology – Maximum accuracy in the clip order of the synchronized project. Four chronology types to choose.
  • Great for big projects – Processing of multi-hour footages from multiple cameras and recorders of various models and formats
  • Unsynchronized clips placement – Even media files that do not have an audio track will be placed with a very small inaccuracy – less than a second!

Speed

  • Fast processing – The highest synchronization speed in the world
  • Speed-Quality Shifter – Seven modes of operation and the choice to prioritize quality or speed
  • Accelerated re-sync – Accelerated processing of sequences with the same footage. Almost instant re-synchronization!
  • Resource saving – Optimal consumption of computer resources. Light install package. Very light cache files in one place

SPECIAL INTERFACE

Syncaila presents a user-friendly, streamlined and informative interface specially designed for synchronization purposes.

DEVELOPED BY A VIDEOGRAPHER AND VIDEO EDITOR

Dear Filmmaker! After getting a degree in IT, I had been working for 10 years in video production, so I know all the nuances of the work of the videographer and video editor. Faced with the problem of synchronizing multi-camera shoots, when existing tools could not cope with the needs of my project, I wanted to get rid of the arduous and tiresome task of syncing manually, so I developed Syncaila. Powerful enough to synchronize multiple-hour-long edits with many different sources and cameras, while providing a speed which is unparalleled, Syncaila frees you from the challenges of manual synchronization and saves your time and energy so you can focus more on a pleasant creative process!

FAQ

What does the “number of tracks” means in the license description?

If you do not need to sync very large multi-camera projects, you can save money with a smaller license, sufficient for your tasks.  A track means a complete audio track (including all channels) + a video track from the same source.  For example, a license for 3 tracks is suitable for a 3 camera project, or 2 cameras + recording from an audio recorder, or 1 camera + 2 simultaneous recordings from an audio recorder.

Can I use a single-user license on my laptop and computer?

A single user license allows you to use Syncaila, for example on your desktop and laptop but does not allow you to run it on both computers simultaneously.  A multiple user license allows running the software on more than one computer simultaneously.  As a single user license, a multiple user license adds one reverse computer for the non-simultaneous run.  A multiple user license adds only one reserve computer to any number of users.

How to upgrade a license?

If you have already purchased a license key and want to make the upgrade to increase the number of tracks, you need to send the key to sales@toolfarm.com (from the email address that was specified when buying the key).  Write about the intention to make the upgrade.  In response, we will send you the payment instructions.  The cost of the upgrade will be the difference between the current prices of your current license and the license you wish to upgrade to.  After completing the payment, we will send you a new license key.

Is there a discount when purchasing a multi-user license?

Yes, at the moment there is the discount when buying a full or ultimate license for several users.  For 2-4 users: 10%. 5-9: 15%. 10-19: 20%. 20-29: 25%. 30+: 30%.  The discount will be automatically calculated upon purchase.  Discount does not apply when buying a limited license.

Please note that the multi user license is intended for a company.  The license key is given one common for a company.  If you are going to unite for a more economical purchase of licenses, then you lose some important advantages of a single user license, that is:

  1. Additional Computer: A single user license allows you to use one license key on a pair of your computers for non-simultaneous use.  A multi user license adds only one additional computer.  It does not double the number of additional computers!
  2. Exclusive technical support: Technical support is provided to a company, not to its individual editors.  Use the e-mail provided during registration.
  3. No Risk: If someone from the multi user license violates the terms of the license agreement, (in the main, this can be distribution of the key), the key will be blacklisted, then other users will not be able to use the software.

Editing software compatibility

  • Adobe Premiere Pro
  • Final Cut Pro X, Final Cut Pro 7
  • DaVinci Resolve

With conditions:

  • Vegas Pro
  • Edius

Adobe Premiere Pro

Syncaila provides correct interaction with Adobe Premiere Pro CS 5.0, CS 5.5, CC 2014-2019

We recommend: Adobe Premiere Pro СС 2014-2019

Adobe Premiere Pro CS 6.0 and CC 7.0 incorrectly interpret audio channels when importing and exporting XML, and are not recommended for Syncaila.

Adobe Premiere Pro CS 5.0 and CS 5.5 split stereo tracks into mono tracks while importing and exporting XML. This creates a cumbersome sequence.

Final Cut Pro X

Final Cut Pro X and Syncaila can work together by export/import to Final Cut Pro X XML (*.fcpxml).

Final Cut Pro 7

Final Cut Pro 7 and Syncaila can work together by export/import to Final Cut Pro 7 XML (*.xml). Tested with last Final Cut Pro 7 version.

DaVinci Resolve

DaVinci Resolve and Syncaila can work together by export/import to Final Cut Pro 7 XML (*.xml) or Final Cut Pro X XML (*.fcpxml). Tested with 14 and 15 version.  Use the Final Cut Pro X XML (*.fcpxml) format to avoid the problem of converting stereo to mono after importing XML to DaVinci Resolve.

Vegas Pro

From version 12 and higher.

Vegas supports both Final Cut Pro 7 XML (*.xml) and Final Cut Pro X XML (*.fcpxml) formats, but with some limitations.

Vegas Pro 12-15 writes to XML the file names instead of absolute file paths, so when you open XML from Vegas, Syncaila can’t detect locations of all media files. Starting with Vegas Pro 16 this issue is addressed, but there is a new issue when exporting to Final Cut Pro 7 XML (*.xml) if a project has files with the same name.

If you use Vegas Pro 12-15, then there are 2 options:

  1. Starting with Syncaila 1.3. Uncheck the Include Media option during the export to XML. Vegas will export the XML file only. You can fix all file paths in Syncaila.
  2. Up to Syncaila 1.2.5. Leave the Include Media option enabled during the export to XML. Vegas will copy all media files to the directory root with the XML file. Syncaila will check this folder and open the files.

We recommend to use Vegas Pro 16 with Syncaila 1.3.3 and above, import and export to Final Cut Pro X XML (* .fcpxml) and uncheck the Include Media option. Thus, you will not need to wait for the sources to be copied or to fix the invalid file paths.

Also, Vegas splits stereo tracks to mono tracks when importing Final Cut Pro 7 XML, and unlink audio and video when importing Final Cut Pro X XML (*.fcpxml).

EDIUS

Edius does not support the export to Final Cut Pro 7 XML.

So, if you want to import a sequence to Syncaila, you should use another editing program, that supports export to Final Cut Pro 7 XML.

Edius splits stereo tracks to mono tracks when importing XML.
