So some things, like for instance Adobe Premiere, come well recommended because you can do some fabulous things with it. Like for instance you can cut and paste between Premiere and AfterEffects. And you sure can do that -- if you have a short or maybe a commercial. But with a feature? Not so much. Some segments simply do not come over in the AfterEffects version of the project (and relying on something that might do that can be very dangerous for your post-production path).
I do understand the companies which make this software have a problem -- where the heck are they going to get the data just to stress-test their products under actual feature conditions? They'd have to bring a 2TB drive to my studio (or to someone's studio who happens to have a feature on a drive with unsynced dual-system audio in a Final Cut Pro project.) It just ain't a-gonna happen.

So... meh. PluralEyes seems nice and all but after 6 hours of it analyzing data we could have synced all the takes by hand and been 5 hours into an edit. Which is what we're going to do.
