Join Nick Harauz for an in-depth discussion in this video Exploring the Angle Viewer, part of Final Cut Pro X Guru: Multicamera Video Editing.
- The Angle Viewer is where we can switch the order, and even add and sync additional clips after the multicamera clip is created. Let's take a look at it in detail. Here's my multicamera clip, and I'll only see it by itself because I'm in that Multicam Smart Collection that we created earlier. And what I'd like to do is, I wanna double-click this multicamera clip. This opens the Angle Editor I was just mentioning. And we can actually see the two angles that were used to create this multicam clip.
First, notice the two markers that we created, and how they are perfectly aligned. Now, if I wanted to switch the order of these two clips, it's pretty easy. At the top right hand corner, you'll notice that there are little grip handles. I could essentially grab one of the grip handles, switch the order of these clips, and this is gonna be reflected when we're able to see the Angle Viewer, which is gonna basically show us all our angles put together. So, at any point in time I can go in here and switch the order of these two clips.
Another thing I can do is play these two clips. And what plays is determined by these little icons right here, right? So this is called the Monitoring Angle. You can see here that I'm monitoring audio and video from it. So if I just simply played here, right? I'm only viewing this one angle. But if I wanted to, I could set this clip here with the Monitoring Angle as well as audio. And just make sure that audio stays on for the other clip.
So if I wanted to switch between the two, just to hear the audio from this clip, I could do that. - If you think about, any goal, we have to really be clear on what that is. - On top of being able to change the order of how our angles are gonna appear, you have this little arrow next to each of the clips in the multicamera clip. This arrow gives us a ton of options that we're gonna explore in the music video, but one is to Add additional angles or even Delete angles. So we could add an angle, in here and then add additional footage if we got it, and even Sync it to the Monitoring Angle.
So, we're not gonna cut our multicamera clip here. It's all about switching angles and adding angles inside this view. We're gonna set up a project and begin to cut our multicamera interview in the next movie.
So join Nick Harauz in this course as he covers organizing media, creating multicam clips for interview and music video-style projects, and working with the specialized multicam options in Final Cut Pro X. With these tips and tricks, you'll be able to pull together your multicam footage into dynamic videos that maximize the impact of every shot.
