One of the great things about multi camera editing in Premiere Pro, is the ability to easily correct any mistakes you've made. So when I did this switch. Sometimes, I might have been a little bit early, or a little bit late in a cut, or even cut to the wrong camera. And I'm not worried about that because I can use all the same editing tools that we learned to do in non multi-cam editing to help refine this edit, as well as, some additional options. So, let's watch the last few edits that I made, and see if they were smooth enough or I made any mistakes. >> And cheesy.
So, go ahead and put that flour right into the mixer. >> Oh look, that dust of smoke I created. >> So, I, I think instead of cutting to me, I should cut back to a wide shot right here because it's much more interesting. As a matter of fact, you can look over here and see in the wide shot, the flour is still going everywhere. So all I need to do is park the play head above the area where I chose the wrong camera angle, and click on the right camera angle, and Premiere will simply swap those two clips out.
So, here we go to the wide shot, it's as simple as that. And if we look down here at the time line, and I'll zoom in We're looking at the wide shot instead. Now while I'm down here I'll show you another way that you can swap out one angle for another. If I right click on any clip I can simply go up to where it says multi camera and I can choose which camera angle I might want to switch to. So, maybe we should take a quick look at Vanessa's reaction which is camera 3 versus the wide shot. >> That dust like smoke I created.
>> Yeah. Great job (INAUDIBLE) . >> so either way, if I didn't like I can go back by clicking undo, and we're back to the wide shot. Now, what if I cut a little bit too early or a little bit too late? Well, you can easily do a roll edit between any two clips. If this isn't working for you, we learned in an earlier video, that it's important to switch your preferences for trimming to allow selection tool to choose roll and ripple trims without a modifier key.
Let me go back and hit Okay, and that's why I can put my cursor right on any of these edit points and go immediately to the roll tool without having to use a modifier or a keyboard shortcut. So if I wanted to, I could actually do a roll edit and I can make the cut exactly where it needs to be. Another way I could do this is simply select the edit point. Position the play head with the cut should be. And press the e key for an extend edit. So refining exactly where an edit happens, very easy with multi camera and premier pro.
What about situations where you missed switching camera angles? I, for instance, want to make a cut here instead of swapping this out. Well, I don't have to go to the cutting tool. I don't have to hit C to go to the blade tool. And I don't need to use any keyboard shortcuts. All I need to do is choose. Where I want the cut to be, hold down a modifier, the Cmd key in this case, and click on the shot right where I want the cut to be. So the first click, creates the cut, and the second click actually switches the angle.
So it's a simple Cmd click, click, and we have added an edit and switched our angle. I'll do that one more time just so you can see it. I want the edit to be here, hold down the Cmd key and go click, release it, click again to do the switch and, as you see, we've now switched from the wide shot to the close up. If you mess up while you're editing on the fly, you can always go back and refine it using a lot of the same tools and techniques that you already know.
