PluralEyes

Fast, Accurate & Automatic
With a touch of a single button, PluralEyes analyzes the audio from your cameras and audio devices and syncs them up, in seconds. No clapboards or timecode are needed.

What’s new:

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.

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.

Vertical Track Scaling
PluralEyes 4.0 adds the ability to scale tracks 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.

What is Red Giant Universe?

Red Giant Universe is a community that gives members access to fast and powerful free tools for editing, filmmaking, visual effects and motion design.

What is a Premium Membership?

We’re trying something new with Universe. While many of the Universe tools are free, there are a lot that are available as a part of Premium membership – paid for via monthly, yearly, or lifetime subscription plans. With premium membership, you get access to more tools and the absolute best Universe has to offer. Most of these are brand new tools and we wanted to offer them to you with the option of paying for them at a low initial fee. However, for those who want to just pay outright, and avoid subscription, we offer a pay-once-only lifetime option.
