Now that we've learned how to create multicam clips, let's go ahead and learn how to edit them. The first thing we need to do is create a sequence for our multicam clip. And the easiest way to do that is to right click on the actual multicam clip and choose from the drop down menu, New sequence from clip. This way we know that our sequence and our clip are going to match perfectly. Now the next thing I want to do is add a button, and it's a verily useful button, and to do that I'll simply go over here to this little plus sign, and when I click on it, it opens up the button editor.
As you see, there are additional buttons that you can add below your program monitor. And by the way you can do the same thing below the source monitor, and some of these are real useful, such as this button here, which allows me to turn on and off title safe or closed captioning. But the button that we're going to work with now, is the multi-cam editing button. It actually toggles a multi-cam view on and off. Now, if you're not a button person, there is keyboard shortcut that you can use. Now, I'm going to go ahead and drag it in.
I could drag it over to the right, but because I have such limited real estate on this screen, I'm going to go ahead and put it into the second layer, into the bottom row. For now, I think that's all I need. I'm going to simply press Okay, and I'm ready to roll. When I press that button, my view changes to this multi camera view. And if I hit play, what I'm going to see is, in the left side of that screen, all the different angles. And I'm going to scrub ahead just to make sure all the cameras have been turned on and synced. So here we're doing a little bit of prep.
We're talking before it starts but whats important to note is that all of the action for multi cam editing is going to take place in this window. I'm going to be able to switch between the images In this window and see the results over here. So for the time being I really don't need my source monitor so often when I'm doing multi-cam editing, I'll go ahead and grab the center here and drag it over to the left, and that's going to give me a lot more visual space to deal with. As a matter of fact, if you want, you can go over here to Window > Workspace, and you can even save this as a new workspace, such as multi-cam, and now if we look under Workspaces, I have a choice to switch immediately to multi-cam editing. So now that we're all set up, let's begin to cut our show. Well, I know at the very beginning, we're doing lots and lots of chit chat and prep. As a matter of fact, I know that until 2 minutes and 18 seconds in, there's nothing worth cutting, so I'm going to jump ahead to that. And to do that I can simply click on this little box right here and type in two minutes and eighteen seconds, and the play handle will jump right there. So I'm going to type in 2-1-8-0-0, that's two minutes, 18 seconds, zero frames. I'm going to press the Enter key And my play head will jump immediately to that point.
And I can see by the expressions on their faces that we're about to start to talk. So I want to trim everything off at the head. We learned in an earlier video that you can use the q and the w key To cutoff the heads or the tails of a clip before or after the play had. So I'm going to simply press the q key and that's going to cut all that junk off from the head, and we are ready to listen and switch. So now we are ready to start editing, and as I watch the four different camera angles, I simply will click on the angle that I want to cut to at the moment I want to cut. It works pretty much something like this.
>> Welcome to Delight Gluten Free Eats. I'm Vanessa Weissberg, executive editor of Delight gluten free magazine. And I'm so excited to welcome you to our test kitchen. My friend Ave is here today to learn how to make a amazing gluten free main dish. So we're making one of my favorite things right now. And this is a honey barbecue chicken pizza. >>Wait a second, pizza? >>Pizza. Gluten free pizza. >>That, that, that, that's going to be awesome. >>Yes, so it's super, super says. I'm not one of those people who likes to wait for my dough to rise. >> Now as soon as I stop playback, you'll notice in the timeline, I actually have the edits, and I'm going to zoom in so you can see these edits. I'm going to press the plus key a few times.
And you'll notice that here it says master camera one, master camera three back to one then I got cut to two. And its very precise and I can go back and skim over and make sure that I did the edit at the exact precise time and picked the shot that I want. The nice thing is if I cut too early or too late or grab the wrong camera, it's very easy to fix and I can truly refine my multicam edit, and don't worry, we'll explore a little bit how you can very easily do that. But right now I want to show you another way that you can cut, so I'm going to go ahead and hit the Minus key just to back up a hair, and we'll jump later on in the program when we start doing some things.
For instance, we're going to start actually pouring in some of the ingredients and I'm going to pick up my cut at this point. But instead of clicking on the actual images, I can use keyboard shortcuts. The keyboard shortcuts in this case, of course, are one through four. And you can actually assign keyboard shortcuts all the way up to 16 angles, and Premiere, has no limit to the number of angles that you can work with. Your only limit, is going to be how fast your hard drives are to be able to handle all of that data. So let me go ahead and hit the Spacebar, and I'm going to say the number I'm switching to as I edit.
And we're starting off, of course, on angle one. >> It makes this really great crusty crust on it >> Three >> But the inside is going to be really soft and cheesy >> Four >> So I'm going to put that flour right into the mixer >> One >> Oh, look >> Four >>That (CROSSTALK) smoke (CROSSTALK) >>Two and one. >>Yeah, great job Abba. (LAUGH) >>So I counted that. I really wasn't focusing as I was trying to count and click, so I think some of my edits are wrong, so we'll explore in the next lesson how you can fix a mistake and refine your edit.
