  • Deleting multiple texts. It is possible to remove a texts selection with only one operation.
  • Texts option changing. If you want to change texts common parameters (to show the name of actor, to change font...), a window allow you to do it on a texts selection.
  • Adjustable layers transparency. The transparency of texts can be tuned layer by layer.
  • Audio waveform memorised. Synchronos save the audio waveform of your project. The project opening is considerably reduced.
  • Increased performances. Application start 25% faster, openning project 5x faster, memory consumption 4x lower.

Detection work is essential for quality dubbing, which is why two layers have been dedicated to it in Synchronos. Detection can be done using a graphic pen or typed text.

Efficient video management

Synchronos takes advantage of the possibilities offered by professional digital video. Because users work with professional digital formats, they enjoy high quality images and full control of video.
