Digital Clapper is a ultimate synch tool for creating time snapshots on a film production sets with multiple cameras and sound devices. It features customizable Countdown timer with sound beeps and custom frames-per-second Timecode generator together with scene, take and date display. A Shots Report was added in version 1.1.0. The Report can be uploaded to server exported to PDF format or shared online.
Enter scene and take number. Hold Digital Clapper in front of the cameras and make sure your audio recording device is capturing beeps. If the environment is too loud and your mic can't pick up beeps use jack cable from Digital Clapper and attach it directly to the camera or external sound recorder inputs. Press the big button with rotating arrow and the countdown will begin. Once in post production synchronizing captured sources on any edit platform (FCP, Avid, Premiere) is fairly straightforward. Simply trim audio and align "beep" to white flash at the end of countdown sequence and your are done. Now you have perfectly synched audio and video.
