PORTLAND, OR — Red Giant (www.redgiant.com) has released Shooter Suite V.13.0, which features the brand new PluralEyes V.4.0 audio/video syncing tool. Topping the list of new features in PluralEyes 4.0 is the ability to sync with PluralEyes directly in Premiere Pro without having to leave the host app, Smart Start capabilities, automatic drift correction, vertical track scaling, integration with Red Giant Offload, and more simplicity and automation.
Syncing audio and video clips in PluralEyes V.4.0 is now made easier thanks to under the hood enhancements that allow PluralEyes to analyze footage and automatically choose the the best possible options so the user doesn’t have to. The tool sports a completely updated look and many new features.
The Adobe Premiere Pro Panel provides all the power and simplicity of syncing in PluralEyes without ever leaving Adobe Premiere Pro. Smart Start makes importing media much easier. Users can drag and drop an entire folder of media into PluralEyes, and during a sync it will automatically detect which device the media came from. Files are sorted so that media from the same device are on the same track.
Automatic Drift Correction accounts for variance on longer clips. Initially introduced in V.3.5, the new V.4 release automatically detects drift and fixes it, then gives the editor the option to toggle between the drift-corrected sync and the original audio for comparison.
Also new, when PluralEyes exports to Premiere Pro, color coding notes any clips that don’t sync properly.
Red Giant Offload performs a checksum during media transfer from camera card to hard drive, giving filmmakers peace of mind that footage was backed up with no loss. PluralEyes now has the same keyboard shortcuts as Premiere Pro for a more intuitive, familiar timeline and playback experience. And Vertical Track Scaling in PluralEyes V.4.0 allows users to see more detail in the waveform when inspecting media.
The Red Giant Shooter Suite is a set of purpose-built applications that give directors of photography, videographers, shooters and filmmakers the ability to bring footage from set to post. With powerful automation and workflow capabilities, creatives can offload, analyze, touch up and synchronize digital media destined for post with confidence and ease.
Additional Tools in Shooter Suite V.13.0 include Offload 1.0, a simple & reliable way to backup footage in the field; Instant 4K, which upconverts video to 4K resolution and other high-resolution formats; and Frames, which deinterlaces older footage and converts it to 24p.
Shooter Suite V.13.0 can be purchased for $399 ($99 upgrade) through Red Giant.
