I am very excited to announce that Red Giant has acquired Singular Software’s audio synchronization products and technology.
Andrew Little and I started Red Giant in 2002. Over the last 10 years we have grown from a small team with a couple of great plug-ins, to a fast-growing company with dozens of plug-ins, artist-driven presets, stand-alone apps like Magic Bullet Looks and Grinder, and even iOS apps that tens of thousands of users rely upon every day.
When talking with Singular Software, we realized that we share a similar culture and vision. Our companies are both spread out geographically, with many team members working remotely but efficiently using Google Docs, Skype and other tools to refine ideas and build products. Bruce Sharpe and his full product team are partnering with Red Giant, and will continue their laser-like focus on PluralEyes®, the best tool for synchronizing video.
With PluralEyes 3.0, we see a fantastic product that makes media preparation faster and easier for users. It also makes production simpler. PluralEyes fits naturally alongside our Magic Bullet Looks to make video productions come together faster. Version 3.0 is coming soon and will continue to support a variety of video editors on Mac and Windows.
Beyond PluralEyes 3.0, our companies have a shared vision for media production. We think that too many tedious tasks get in the way of real editing, and we want to help our users focus on the creative parts. We’re excited to include Singular Software’s technology in future Red Giant products.
