PluralEyes 3 from Red Giant Finally Gets Windows Support

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.

Here is Red Giant on their blog about how much it will cost you if you haven't already given version 3 a shot:

IMPORTANT: Anyone who purchased DualEyes 2 or PluralEyes 2  (Windows or Mac) after March 17, 2012 is eligible for a FREE upgrade. A coupon code will be emailed to you shortly. Also, anyone who purchased PluralEyes 3 (Mac) gets Windows compatibility in this free PluralEyes 3 update – Get the free update HERE. That’s part of our Red Pledge Guarantee.

PluralEyes 3 on Windows works with Sony Vegas 10-12, Avid Media Composer 5.5-6.5, and Adobe Premiere Pro CS5-CS6. PluralEyes 3 added a number of improvements over version 2, including a standalone sync application, here are some tutorials for using that software (this should be very similar to the Windows version):

Of course, many more are familiar with the plugins, here's how to get started with Premiere CS6:

I'm sure this will be welcome news for many who've been looking to speed up their syncing in post, but only have Windows machines at their disposal. I also think it's great that they are giving free support to Mac users who've already purchased the software -- I'm sure that will help save quite a few headaches in post switching between platforms.

Head on over to the Red Giant site to learn more and get a copy (or update the one you already have).

Red Giant's promise to give free versions to both Windows and Mac OS X has been a huge influence when I've bought plugins before. They make killer stuff, but their support has won out for me over many other options.

Great to see this long awaited software update, however I am told that the support for Edius is not even as good as the older version 2 of PluralEyes. Lets hope the giant can see down this far and get it sorted or the long awaited version 3 for me is a dead duck :(.

Bought it for Win-7 and didn't work, had bugs in it...
I wonder if I have to pay for upgrade for a package never worked as advertised?

Let's not forget the Plural Eyes was NOT created for a backward platform like a MAC. It was created for and resided solely on Windows for the first 4 years of it's life. In fact it was created specifically to use on Sony Vegas and take advantage of Vegas' superior scripting engine. It still works best on Vegas. When Red Giant bought the company (called Singular Software) for some strange reason they choose to release a Mac version 3 before a Windows version, That certainly angered Pluraleyes owners like myself and made me question their commitment to the superior Windows platform. It sure took a long time for this to come out, far, far, too long. Version 2 works great, I think I will stick with it, and keep my money. I have used this product for about 4 years and it is a significant time saver.
