One of the software programs I use the most in my post workflow when working with the Canon 7d and Zoom h4n is DualEyes by Singular Software. This Great program Allows me to┬áimport audio and video clips from my camera and field recorder, sync them, then export them as a single video file. The only work for me is selecting the correct files to sync. If that’s not your favorite work flow, DualEyes will also cut to length,┬árelabel audio, and generate an xml file for you to use with your NLE software.

The nice thing is that it doesn’t transcode video files. DualEyes simply replaces the audio in the video clip with the proper audio from the field recorder. This saves me at least an hour every time i sit down to edit footage.

The reason I bring all of this up is that Singular Software has just released DualEyes for Mac. As part of their release promotion you can get a copy of DualEyes (for mac osX) for a very reasonable $119. My copy for windows was $149. That’s not a huge savings but $20 could buy you a nice remote control for your Zoom H4n. The offer ends February 21st so if you think this is something you could use, I would buy a copy now before the price goes up.

If you haven’t heard of Singular Software’s programs, swing over to the site and check them out. They have plugins for Final Cut Pro, Premiere Pro, and Sony Vegas that preform similar tasks (although I prefer to sync my audio outside the timeline).

I don’t get any kick back for recommending this. It’s just a peace of software I love.
