PE35_Pre-SyncEarlier in the month, Red Giant software introduced Universe, a new plugin platform that is also its own community. The biggest thing about Universe is that it is free to sign up, so you can get an idea of what it’s all about before committing any hard-earned cash. Now Red Giant is back with some updates to some of their most popular software, including PluralEyes, which is now integrated with BulletProof, and a new version of Magic Bullet Looks, which is now GPU accelerated and completely rebuilt on the Universe platform.

Red Giant - PluralEyes 3Though it’s been available on the Mac for some time, there has been quite a bit of demand for a Windows port of PluralEyes 3. That support is now a reality, as Red Giant has finally announced the Windows version of the popular audio syncing software. It contains all the same features and fast syncing of previous versions, except, of course, it now works on the PC. Click through for more on compatibility and pricing information. More »

When you hear the term “bullet time,” you probably can’t help but think of The Matrix. And if you’ve taken a gander at the behind the scenes footage from that film or similar productions, then you know that’s it’s an effect usually done in large warehouse studios, with a multitude of cameras on a huge rig, and run by a sizable crew, which all adds up to being quite expensive. Even renting a bullet time rig will more than likely be cost prohibitive, but with some elbow grease you can put together your own portable rig at a more indie friendly price: More »

It’s very surreal to waltz through my local big-box store and think “Wow, I could make a real movie with that Canon.” It was even more surreal to see some of that same gear in the Black Friday ads. As we’ve seen with the “DSLR Revolution,” the democratization of filmmaking comes from amazing imaging devices becoming accessible (cheap) to the masses. Well, this year the revolution continued, as they say, as there were a lot of filmmaker-relevant deals going on for Black Friday. But what about a roundup of (still ongoing) Cyber Monday deals? Griffin Hammond of Indy Mogul provides a nice video of his “MEGA DEALS” after the bump: More »

After Red Giant took over PluralEyes, the popular syncing software, it wasn’t clear what they would do with the program or how they would support it. With the newest software update, 3.1, it looks like they are committed to making it as easy to use as possible, and bringing it to as many computers as possible. While Windows support will be coming in version 3.2, the current update addresses a few of the remaining concerns for current users. Click through to check out what they’ve done in this update.

As I said in my previous post on the Great Wireless Mic Shootout, great location audio will make your film shine. To ensure a proper sync with any second-system audio however, you need great source audio on an external recorder and from the camera. Luckily for us DSLR shooters there are plenty of options for on-camera mics out there. And if you’re not a fan of all that second-system syncing in post, you’re in luck — now through December 31st, RØDE is packaging PluralEyes 3 — a $200 value — with the purchase of their Stereo VideoMic Pro or their VideoMic Pro. Hit the bump for an informative video from Aahron Rabonowitz of Red Giant/Creative COW fame: More »

PluralEyes has been around for quite some time, and with the increasing popularity of DSLRs and recording dual-system sound, it’s been a necessity. Even though newer NLEs like Final Cut Pro X (and not Premiere Pro, unfortunately) have the ability to sync audio, a third-party application like PluralEyes should be able to do it faster and more efficiently, and that’s certainly the claim made by Red Giant about the new PluralEyes version 3. This is the first version of PluralEyes since Red Giant acquired the software, so it will be interesting to see what direction it takes from here.

It looks like Singular Software isn’t sitting on its laurels when it comes to its popular audio synching software, PluralEyes.  They’ve announced version 3.0, and with a new version comes faster synching speed, greater accuracy, a more informative interface, and less of a plug-in feel: More »

This is a guest post by Alexander Fox, founder of CrewOfOne.

Trying to sort out the best way to handle audio on a microbudget DSLR shoot can be a real challenge. Ideally, you’d hire a professional audio operator with a high-end field mixer who would adjust microphone levels on the fly, and record all the audio to a hard drive. Unfortunately, for every one of those shoots I get, I have ten one-man-band shoots. If you’re in a similar situation, you may be interested in the DSLR audio system I’ve developed: More »

If you’re more confident in your ability to shoot with a DSLR and audio recorder than you are in dealing with the resulting clips in post, the good folks at NextWaveDV have put together an audio post-production tutorial. Here, they demonstrate a manual audio synching approach using Premiere Pro, as well as using the great, massive time-saving plugin Pluraleyes. As evidenced by the “HDSLR 101″ moniker, this is pretty basic stuff, but it should be valuable for those getting their feet under them. Here’s the tutorial: More »

Singular Software’s PluralEyes is the go-to plugin for editors who need to ingest footage from a dual-system shoot. When the audio was recorded on a separate recorder, and the recording medium lacks proper timecode (like, say, any HDSLR), PluralEyes analyzes the on-camera (low quality) audio and automatically syncs it to the audio recorder’s (high quality) files. Voilà! To date, this software has only been available as a NLE plugin on the Mac, because DualEyes — the same technology in a standalone software package — was only available on Windows. Now Singular has released DualEyes for Mac, which lets you sync your files and bring them into any NLE (Final Cut Express or iMovie, for example). It’s also discounted for a limited time (since expired): More »

Miracle-working automatic synchronization software Pluraleyes is the absolute best way to sync sound in any less-than-ideal situation (where you don’t have perfectly synched timecode — or any timecode at all, for that matter). If you’re shooting on an HDSLR and are recording audio to a separate device, this is a must-have. Now PluralEyes has finally come to the Mac version of Premiere Pro, and Singular Software is offering this version at a 20% discount until December 11 (since expired). More »

Since I’m currently building a Hackintosh with the express intent of switching from Final Cut Pro to Premiere Pro — and all systems are go, so far — it’s nice to know that Singular Software’s amazing sound-sync plug-in PluralEyes is now available for Premiere (it was previously restricted to Final Cut and Vegas). The plugin, which automagically syncs dual-system audio, is currently available with a 20% discount (since expired). However, there’s a caveat attached: More »

Daniel Plym shoots for the online entertainment mag Buzzine, and as a result he shoots a lot of red carpet interviews — on a DSLR. He’s responsible for both video and audio as a one man operation, and he manages to shoot dual-system without an audio guy. Here, he breaks down how he’s able to do this via the combination of a 5D Mark II, Sennheiser wireless mic, Zoom H4n, and the Pluraleyes plugin for Final Cut Pro. His tutorial is clear and concise — perfect if you’re not yet shooting dual-system but are thinking about doing so: More »
