Re: Cs 5 vs 5.5

Pluraleyes does indeed sync the footage looking at the wave forms. Ive had lots of success with it. I was told over at the adobe forums that CS5.5 doesnt do what Pluraleyes does, but rather some type of timecode syncing.....whatever that is???

Yes, you can use timecode to sync up your clips. For example, if your video timecode matched your audio timecode, then you could merge them with that timecode, rather than lining them up manually.

Re: Cs 5 vs 5.5

In CS5, this doesn't work with m2t clips from a CF card, as from the MRC1k recorder, although it works fine with tape imports. With m2t files from cards, the timecode option is greyed out.

Has this been fixed in CS5.5?

Re: Cs 5 vs 5.5

I bought PluralEyes a few months ago and have come to depend on it. It is not a cure-all for audio sync. It has been fooled by one of my projects returning junk but it did the job the other 95% of the time where I would have worked hours on it. In addition, it enables synching that an ordinary person cannot do. One of my projects had two cameras running independently on and off during a wedding reception. The DJ's music in the background was all that was needed to synch up various clips where each videographer was working independently of the otherr.

The sync is more than matching up frame-for-frame. It does a sub-frame synchronization for a lot of precision.

On the failed project I probably could have worked with it to get success but that project was so simple that a manual sync was pretty easy to do. It's just that I gave up with the first attempt because I knew that in another ten minutes I would have it manually.

At $150 it was a no-brainer to buy. They have a full-featured trial version you can test it out with.
