2.0

March 26, 2019
  • Completely redesigned sync engine with new settings
    • Drastically improved the synchronization of projects with non-original sources (proxy, recoded, modified, downloaded via the Internet)
    • Improved automatic order of clips after synchronization. Now the files with the modified dates are sorted in alphabetical order, which eliminates the earlier disorder on the tracks in such cases
    • Minimized the number of additional tracks added in complex projects
    • Improved synchronization quality by 5-10% for projects with original sources. In projects with non-original sources, on average, 10% fewer files are synchronized due to the lack of metadata
    • Improved sync accuracy
    • Increased sync speed
    • Reworked and improved quality-speed levels of synchronization. Now there are 7 of them: Approximate, Very Fast, Fast, Advanced, Optimal, Thorough, Utmost
    • Added mode of instant approximate synchronization by recording date and time stamps with an accuracy of 0-1 seconds
    • Added a level of thorough synchronization, when the program does not stop the synchronization until each file has been compared with all remaining files
    • Added setting to keep the chronology of clips: automatic, by date and time, by name and “as is in the XML”
    • Added the possibility to set color labels for synchronized and non-synchronized clips
    • Added the possibility to change the name of the sequence when exporting
    • Added reading of the recording date saved in the metadata by some cameras. In some cases, this further improves the quality of synchronization
    • Muted audio or missing audio are now immediately blocked before synchronization. This accelerates the sync process
  • Report the problem tool. Now, if you are not satisfied with the synchronization results, you can send a report directly from the software to the server. Syncaila will automatically send all the necessary data. This will allow to solve problems and improve the quality of synchronization much faster.
  • Redesigned sync toolbar and the rest of the Syncaila interface
