Shooter Suite's automated audio/video sync tool updated
Red Giant announced today the release of its updated audio/video sync tool for Shooter Suite, PluralEyes 3.5. Able to analyze the audio from a variety of devices and automatically sync it to multiple video tracks, the editing tool aims to save days of work in the usually-tedious process of unifying unsynced audio and video. The latest version of PluralEyes offers improved and expanded support for more media types, and support for AVCHD camera that include support for spanned clips.
PluralEyes 3.5 integrates with BulletProof, Red Giant's footage backup and preparation tool. BulletProof sends imported footage to PluralEyes when one is ready to begin file syncing, and allows footage to sync immediately and in an organized way. Soon available in a beta format, PluralEyes 3.5 is due to be released during the second quarter of 2014 for $200, and those seeking to upgrade an existing version will pay only $80.
