Public beta program announced
Video software makers Singular Software, fresh on the heels of an update of their PluralEyes companion to Final Cut Pro, have announced a public beta for PluralEyes for Adobe Premiere Pro for Mac. The software works with input from either the CS4 or CS5 versions of Premiere Pro.
The program, which works outside corresponding video editing programs on both Mac and Windows, does the work of synchronizing multi-camera, multi-take or dual-system audio with video clips automatically, providing both a master track and a secondary collection of clips that remain in sync with the master audio. The beta for Premiere Pro currently works only with video formats supported by QuickTime (and QuickTime plug-ins such as Flip4Mac WMV Player and Perian).
PluralEyes is also available for Final Cut Pro for Mac, and Sony Vegas Pro and Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 on the Windows platform. It has won rave reviews in the video community for its ability to sync audio from multiple sources or takes without any special preparation.
The current beta version is 1.2.0 (3801) and requires Mac OS X 10.5 or later, along with Premiere Pro CS4 or later.
