Synchronized Playback - Simple and Powerful
product features

Video Sync offers seamless playback of movies in sync to MIDI Timecode & MIDI Machine Control. It works with all major DAWs including Pro Tools®, Logic Pro X, Nuendo, Cubase, Ableton Live!, Bitwig and Studio One - or any other device that can generate MIDI Timecode as a source. 

Enjoy the tightest possible sync integration with Pro Tools|Ultimate™ & Pro Tools|HD™ using Satellite Link - for incredibly accurate scrubbing, selection, looping & moving in any direction in the timeline, or within Pro Tools® - while the picture constantly updates.

Video Sync's sync engine provides stunningly fast lock-up times and guaranteed tight sync - in many cases, better than the video engine built into your DAW.

Playback engine with GPU-supported rendering
product features

Leverage the power of Video Sync to playback all the most commonly used codecs including ProRes, H.264, and AVC Intra; & the most supported container types like QuickTime MOV. Stop wasting time transcoding movie clips to a format preferred by your DAW. Just drop the video clip into Video Sync, and it does the rest. Video Sync gives exceptional video playback and saves you valuable time.

Video Device Support with Unique Flexibility

Don't be tied to simple playback through your computer monitor. Video Sync also supports a range of Blackmagic Design devices including their DeckLink, UltraStudio and Intensity ranges.

Customisable Movie Export

An essential part of any sound-for-picture workflow, is the ability to export a variety of movies. Ever needed to export a movie excerpt with an added piece of music for the Director? Or needed to export the whole video file with your programmed visual cues - to send to the scoring stage?

Now you can - with Video Sync's flexible movie exporting features. Video Sync offers you the flexibility to select video and audio codec output options, include or remove audio tracks, and export a range based on the timeline selection.

Video Sync 5 in real-life scenarios

Card image cap
Christopher Doucet
Composer for film and TV

I think there are certain things that just make sense, and end up becoming the industry standard. [...] Video Sync is kind of the same thing for me; I personally think it’s going to be a must-have if you’re working to video. Especially with all the different file formats and video encoding; all the different variables that can happen."
