The PluralEyes Process for “Drag and Drop”

As with most editing sessions, you’ll always want to start your synchronization efforts outside of your dedicated NLE
(i.e.- before going into iMovie, FCP 7, Adobe Premiere Pro, etc.)

If you go into PluralEyes, you’ll notice that dragging and dropping all of the clips in will not produce the same results as it would inside of DreamSync.

The reason for this is because inside of PluralEyes you actually have to make a separate been for every individual camera angle.

Thankfully, PluralEyes DOES recognize audio files for what they are and places them into a default bin called “Audio Recorder”.

The downside is that if you were to click sync  at this point, the software will treat all of these angles as ONE SINGLE CAMERA ANGLE, causing the synchronization to fail or result in false positives.

To avoid this issue in PluralEyes, we must place each camera angle into its own separate Bin.

That’s an extra step that you’d have to do in order to synchronize in PluralEyes.

The EAISER Solution: Woowave DreamSync

Inside of Woowave DreamSync; the process of “preparing clips” into bins before clicking “Sync” is easy:
Just drop all of your clips into the bin, click SyncAnd that’s it.
