Hey folks – today we’ve released PluralEyes 3. If you’ve already used previous versions, then you know how fricktastically awesome it is. If you’ve never used PluralEyes, here’s the elevator pitch: (BTW – You can check out our film Form 17 HERE, and an expanded behind the scenes video HERE.) The long and short of it is this: For videographers and filmmakers with audio and multi-camera recordings, PluralEyes revolutionizes the workflow of films, weddings, events, music videos, commercials and documentaries. The new PluralEyes 3 takes the tedium out of syncing audio and video footage, accomplishing in seconds what used to take hours or days. Though it’s version #3, this is Red Giant’s first release of PluralEyes, since we acquired the technology. Today’s release is Mac-only, but Windows support is coming soon. Here’s what’s new in PluralEyes 3:
  • Serious Speed Boost – Syncs in seconds. Version 3 is 20x faster than Plural Eyes 2. Seriously.
  • New UI and Timeline – Have more confidence with a timeline and visual feedback. Users can identify problems before they happen, and watch the sync occur in real time. But don’t blink, because it will happen FAST!
  • Test and tweak –  New quality control options like Two-Up View and Snap to Sync, along with a visual timeline.
  • Get sync functionality in one place – Red Giant’s integration of DualEyes functionality has created a standalone PluralEyes application, taking audio/video syncing out of the NLEs and into its own consolidated work environment. The new standalone application supports a broad range of filmmaking workflows including native DSLR, along with other cameras, file formats and codecs. More info HERE.
  • All Hosts and OS’s for One Price – Previously, you purchased PluralEyes by host app. But… As a part of our Red Pledge, when you purchase PluralEyes 3, you get it for ALL host applications supported by PE3 – not just one. And PE3 supports a lot of apps! Users get exactly what they need with one simplified purchase.
And of course the big question… What’s it going to cost you? You know, I’m glad you asked. Pricing and Availability
  • New $199 (includes ALL supported host apps)
  • Upgrade $79 – for ANY previous PluralEyes or DualEyes customer
  • As a part of our Red Pledge Guarantee, customers who bought PluralEyes 3 AFTER 3/17/2012 will get a FREE UPGRADE to PluralEyes 3. A coupon code will be emailed to you shortly.
  • Mac only. Support for Windows and other host applications is  coming  – PluralEyes 3 owners will  get a free update, when released.

  5. Hi,
    When you say “windows support coming soon”, how “soon” do you mean? next week, next year…

  6. Please hurry up with a windows version – I have a use for it in November! 🙂

  7. Does this version of Plural Eyes work with 4 channels of audio (as in 4 individual files from separate mics of the same shot)?

    1. I’m not quite sure if it will work with this set up.
      Please go ahead and try the demo of the product:
      redgaintsoftware.com/getsoftware

      Contact our support team if any issues occur.

  9. Sorry, but I’m either confused, or dense. Your PE3 promotional info says:
    “As a part of our Red Pledge Guarantee, customers who bought PluralEyes 3 AFTER 3/17/2012 will get a FREE UPGRADE to PluralEyes 3. A coupon code will be emailed to you shortly.”

    Did you mean “customers who bought PluralEyes2 AFTER 3/17/2012…”

    Much thanks.

    1. David,

      Yes, I’m sorry for the typo. You are correct it should say PluralEyes 2.

      Thank you,

  10. Hi, i’m stuck as the pluraleyes 3 has an issue with changing sequence settings, changing the scale/aspect ratio of mixed footage in CS6 prem pro, basically making it un-useable. It was in the forums of singular software but has not been fixed ( http://www.singularsoftware.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=911)
    Where can we send log files or support? We have 6 editors working here and it we all have the same issue… please help??

    1. Sam,

      Please send those log files to our support team:
      http://www.redgiantsoftware.com/company/contact-us/support/
      They will be able to look further into this issue.
      Thank you,

  11. I purchased a copy of Pluraleyes 2 on June 22nd, 2012, but I have yet to receive a coupon for my free download of Pluraleyes 3. Will my current serial number just work? Or do you have to send me the coupon.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    1. Mike,

      We will need to provide you that coupon code. I will email you this information.
      Thank you,

  12. All excited…yes! Plural Eyes 3….oh wait I run Windows….pity 🙁

    1. Clint,

      We are currently working on the compatibility for Windows and PE3. This will be a free update to PluralEyes 3 customers. Your current purchase also includes PluralEyes 2 and DualEyes, the original tools that support Mac, Windows and all NLEs.
      Hope this information helps!

  13. Would be greate if you would give us an ETA on the Windows version of PluralEyes 3. Need it soon, or else have to do something else. (Surprisingly, there ARE professionals who don’t use Macs…)

    1. Doc Benson,

      We are currently working on compatibility for PE3 and Windows. If all goes well, we are hoping to have this released some time after the new year.
      Unfortunately, since we are still testing, we do not have an exact eta on this release.
      Thank you so much for your patience.

  14. Is there an email list that we can fill out to be notified about the windows version being released?

  15. Thought you might want to know about what some guy has on craigslist and on eBay…

    Just another sound mixer who appreciates not having to keep using my timecode slate on everything anymore.

    1. Jerry,

      Thank you so much for the heads up. We hope that our customers understand the risk of purchasing our products off of sites like Ebay. More then likely the serials they are provided are pirated which makes it difficult for our team to troubleshoot any issue they may come across. It is always safer to purchase directly from us or from one of our trusted resellers.
      Thank you so much!

  20. Hi,

    I don’t understand how the trial version works. Is it full-featured or with limited functionality? Also, can you tell me a little about what is required for Academic purchase? I work for French National Science (CNRS), but have no specific ID associated with this. I do have a pay sheet (fiche de pay) and a photo ID.

    Merci, Frame

    1. Frame,

      PluralEyes 3 is a 30 day full functioning trial. Here is a link to our Academic Buyers guide:
      http://www.redgiant.com/support/buyers-guide/academic-pricing/
      Your pay sheet and ID would be enough information to qualify for this discount.
      I hope this helps!
