November 1, 2012 Free PluralEyes 3 software with VMP & SVMP this November & December
‘Dual-System’ audio for filmmaking has never been easier this November and December, thanks to RØDE Microphones and Red Giant Software.
Every purchase of a RØDE VideoMic Pro
or Stereo VideoMic Pro
microphone from an authorised RØDE dealer worldwide during November and December 2012 qualifies for a free copy of Red Giant Software’s award-winning PluralEyes
audio and video synchronizing software. Valued at US$199, the software will be supplied free to the customer via direct download upon online registration of their microphone’s free ten year extended warranty.
The RØDE VideoMic Pro and Stereo VideoMic Pro have become the DSLR microphones of choice due to their high-quality audio, ease of use and compact form factor, and are a ‘must-have’ for getting the best results both in single and dual/multi-system audio setups. This practice involves recording ‘scratch’ audio direct to camera as well as capturing close-miked or boomed audio to a separate recording device.
By synchronising audio and multi-camera video automatically, PluralEyes has revolutionised this post-production workflow for filmmakers and video editors. Prior to PluralEyes, filmmakers would have to use a slate, clap or similar sound to create a spike in the audio signal that they could use to painstakingly align multiple tracks by eye.
Accelerated to up to 20 times the speed of previous versions, PluralEyes 3 now makes it easier than ever to integrate multiple audio and video into your production.
For more information on the offer, or to claim your free copy of PluralEyes 3, please visit www.rodemic.com/pluraleyes
