use pluraleyes to create merged clips?
on Jul 10, 2010 at 10:16:44 am

Hi! Is there a way to do this? It works flawlessly to sync audio and video, but I need the results to be merged clips. I tried to do it manually by matchframing, setting an In point and merging that way, but Pluraleyes seems to create a subclip for its sequences, not master clips, so it doesn't work.

How do you creeate merged clips with Pluraleyes? Tx

Merged clips and Multiclips just aren't the same animal. Plural eyes was designed to sync cameras not audio to video per se... without audio for sync purposes between two clips, Plural eyes won't work... so don't think there's a way to make a merged clip with it...

There is software though that will. Phil Hodgetts has something that does this. http://www.AssistedEditing.com/Sync-N-Link/

We will be adding merged clips to the version 1.2 update, which is currently in beta. In the meantime the beta has a Replace audio feature that does something similar in the timeline.

Hi Bruce,

I'm using PluralEyes 1.2 --- could you explain where the "merge clip" feature is? This would greatly increase my productivity.

Best,
Phil

If you choose the sync option Replace audio, PluralEyes will create (1) an additional synced sequence with the audio replaced and (2) a set of merged clips in the Browser.

I thought this would be an amazing discovery, but a majority of my shots don't sync. Tried only three shots the second time and it synchronized two, but created havoc in the browser. Strong usage, but I wonder can you bypass the creation of sequences? And possibly isolate everything to a single bin and not the browser? I would like an assistant editor type solution, creating only merged clips in a single bin...

I guess ill have to continue to do it manually with narrative projects. Unless there is another product out there anyone?

You should have better sync success than that. I suggest you contact support. There is probably something simple that can be done to get it going.

PluralEyes will always create a sequence, but you can just delete it if you don't want it.

Not sure I understand the bin versus browser question. The merged clips are stored in a single bin in the browser.

If you've already synced your clips using pluraleyes and did not use the function to create a merged clip from that process, can you do it after the fact?

To create merged clips after a sync, you can do it manually. For each pair of clips you want to merge, trim them in the timeline so that their in points match. Then drag them to the browser, select them and choose Modify > Merge clips. Synchronize based on in points.

There is a faster easier way: if you already have the clips synchronized in the timeline, link the right video to the right audio (Cmd+L), then just drag it to the browser. (You might have to unlink the original scratch audio first)
FCP will automatically created one merged clip in the browser.

Yes, I synced a bunch of sequences, and then found that what I wound up with was good, accurately-synced audio and video, with the old (camera) audio still there, on its own timeline. I could not find a way to place these into a clip bin without the resulting "clip" (actually a sequence) still having the old audio playing on it. so, if I understand this correctly, I should re-synch this footage, choosing the "replace" audio function when doing so, and I'll wind up with a new set of clips that I can then edit with in a normal function...have I got this right? And, the version of Pluraleyes that I'm working with is the "academic"; will this work with this version?

I have synced a bunch of footage using Pluraleyes (academic version) and find that I wind up with synced sequences that are just that -- sequences as opposed to "clips". when I try to move them to a clip bin, what I wind up with is still sequences, and the old "camera" audio continues to play along with the new, synced audio. So, if I'm understanding this correctly, I should re-sync these sequences, choosing the "replace audio" option, and then I'll wind up with both 1) synced sequences and also 2) a set of clips in that have the new audio only, and which I can then edit as with any other clip. Do I have this right? (forgive me, I'm new at this).

I have this issue too, I used the replace audio function and have a 'synced replaced' sequence now, however if I drag these supposedly audio replaced files out into the browser they seem to lose the replaced audio and have only their old audio. It is causing me some real problems, I've emailed support but have had no response yet...
