New Software for Double-System Sound

Posted on by Larry

Philip Hodgetts has created an amazing utility (I saw it demoed recently at the LA Final Cut Pro User Group) that speeds the entire process of sync’ing double-system sound.

It’s called Sync-N-Link, and Philip describes it this way:

Sync-N-Link for FCP takes away the time-consuming chore of synchronizing dailies or rushes by processing projects or bins of unsynchronized clips exported from Final Cut Pro. Sync-N-Link for FCP will save days ahead of editorial and opens new flexibility in editing dual-system sound with Final Cut Pro.

Sync-N-Link for FCP supports two different workflows:

• Pre-edit sync — Bins of video clips are synced to multi-track audio before editing;
• Cut first/sync later — an edited Sequence with camera audio has the audio replaced with the full audio tracks.

With a pre-edit sync, Sync-N-Link for FCP gives you the option to retain camera audio along with multi-track audio from the separate system recording, or only use channels from the multi-track. With the cut first/sync later workflow, the edited sequences can be exported (via Final Cut Pro XML) to Sync-N-Link for FCP. The camera audio will be replaced with the full set of channels from the multi-track recording. Sequences are processed one-at-a-time so that lock off can happen per sequence or reel.

The retail price is $495, but I’ve talked Philip into providing you a discount to $395 for the month of February. When you order, tell them “Larry sent you.”
