- In this chapter, we're going to examine…what you would need to do if you were using footage…that was shot with multiple cameras.…It's a slightly different workflow.…Now in this case, we had footage that was shot…with two cameras in the close ups,…and then we had another take where they shot the wide shot.…So the first thing I want to do is create a multi-cam clip…for the two cameras that were shot in sync.…Now, I've already built this,…so if you have access to the exercise files,…this is already done for you.…
If you're using your own footage, I just want to go over…how to build a multi-cam clip as a refresher.…If you need more detail, go back and watch…the essential training for Final Cut Pro X.…The first thing we want to do is select the two clips…that we need to sync together.…Now I've labeled everything as I brought it in,…and in the case of these two clips,…I can see that it's scene 3a, take 2, camera A…and 3a, take 2, camera B.…
So I'm going to go ahead and select both of those,…hold down the command key so they're both selected,…
Note: This course was updated to reflect the changes to Final Cut Pro X v. 10.1.x. Although the course was not re-recorded from scratch, we updated each of the movies by adding text overlays to guide you to existing changes. We also updated the exercise files to work with the most current version of the software. Please watch the "Understanding this update and using the exercise files" movie to learn exactly what to expect from this updated course. Working with an earlier version of Final Cut Pro X? Watch Narrative Scene Editing with Final Cut Pro X 10.0.9.
