The makers of the awesome PluralEyes software have just released a new standalone application called DualEyes. The new DualEyes software offers the same automated-syncing results that you get from PluralEyes, but because it is a standalone application, you can use it with just about any video editing application, including Premiere Pro, Avid Media Composer or Sony Vegas.
DualEyes retails for $149, but is up for grabs at a 20% discount (for $119) through October 30. You can download a free 30-day trial of DualEyes here.

DualEyes Press Release
Vancouver, British Columbia – September 30, 2010 – Singular Software™, developer of automation applications for digital media markets, is pleased to announce the availability of DualEyes™ for Windows®, an audio synchronization application developed for video production. Designed to work alongside almost all video editing applications, including Adobe® Premiere Pro®, Avid® Media Composer®, and Sony® Vegas Pro®, DualEyes employs the same advanced automatic synchronization technology as PluralEyes® to streamline the otherwise tedious and time-consuming process of syncing dual-system recordings with the corresponding video.
“DSLR cameras are being used everywhere for video, and their image quality keeps improving. To obtain audio at the same level of excellence, the preferred method is dual-system audio: capture sound on a separate recorder and substitute it for the camera audio during post-production. However, this can be a very laborious process when done manually,” says Bruce Sharpe, CEO, Singular Software. “Unlike PluralEyes, DualEyes works as a standalone application, with an emphasis on the dual-audio workflow. No more of the ‘hunt, trim, hunt, trim’ steps required by manual synchronization; DualEyes is quick and easy, and can incorporate the highest quality audio for any video production.”
DualEyes is extremely versatile and can be used with software ranging from entry-level consumer editors to comprehensive professional production suites. Users need simply capture audio on a separate high-quality recorder and import it along with the video clips. DualEyes then automatically synchronizes the audio to match each video clip in both start time and duration. Its sophisticated technology recognizes audio and video files, so no special layout or organization is needed. DualEyes magically replaces all original in-camera scratch audio files with the separately recorded high-quality audio.
