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:
The current Premiere version only works in Windows. While Macs make up only 10% of the U.S. market, over 50% of No Film School's visitors are Mac-based, so the fact that it's available for Premiere Pro is perhaps less helpful given it's only available for the PC version. Still, if you're an Adobe-based editor working on a PC, Singular's got a very handy plugin for you:
PluralEyes is available for purchase on the Singular Software website. An introductory discount of 20% will be applied to the original price ($149 USD) if purchased before September 17, 2010. Students and instructors can also benefit from Singular Software's academic discount of 50%, which can be applied to individual purchases of PluralEyes. PluralEyes for Premiere Pro is compatible with Windows® XP®, Vista® and Windows 7®. A version for Mac OS X users will be released at a later date.
