Editors in film, TV and video post production, music and multimedia, now have more control over any required audio alignment editing. They will be able to target the alignment of the replacement signal (Dub) to the Guide where it is required, by using the new Sync Points feature and can keep sections of the Dub from being edited by specifying Protected areas.
These features will be invaluable for certain types of noisy or reverberant Guide signals and especially useful for foreign dialogue replacement.In addition, the new Preview Controls allow much more detailed examination of parts or all of the two signals, together or separately, both before or after alignment to confirm the quality of editing and alignment.
Advanced features and functions in VocALign PRO
- Increased alignment accuracy:- achieved with a new and more sophisticated pattern recognition algorithm.
