If I haven’t mentioned it yet, I basically live my life through Evernote. I discovered it in late 2011 and it changed my workflow for not only taking notes, but my entire writing process. Organizing ideas has become a whole different game, one that for me has increased my productivity tenfold. If you met me at party, Evernote and my advocation of its use would undoubtedly end up in our conversation. With Evernote’s recent security scare, it made me realize: I don’t actually even have files on my computer anymore — they’re all in the cloud. Well, what if the cloud goes down? I scrambled to find a solution to create a redundant backup of my Evernote files (i.e. all the notes on a screenplay I’m writing, audio interviews, photo references, etc) and I discovered cloudHQ.

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.

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.

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 »

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 »
