Join Jeff I. Greenberg for an in-depth discussion in this video Multicam sync, part of Final Cut Pro X Guru: Sync Sound Workflow.
- Sync Sound's first cousin happens to be Multicam.…They both use some of the same techniques,…with Multicam really more focused on…video than audio, although you can use…different audio tracks as an angle, if you want.…There's some great stuff here on lynda,…including my friend Nick Harauz's training…on Final Cut X's Multicam that I should…absolutely recommend you would check out.…Meanwhile, let's take a look on my system.…Let's do a little bit of basic Multicam here.…I'm going to go ahead and take these two shots,…and I'm going to go up to the File menu…and say, New Multicam Clip,…I could have also have done that as a right-click.…
With this up, you'll see when I'm on…Automatic Settings it's as easy as Sync was,…but with Custom Settings we have…the ability to go in and do the…same sort of angle synchronization.…We can do it based on a marker, based on time code,…and you're going to probably want to…use the audio for synchronization.…With that being said, I'll call this First Multicam,…and I'll say OK.…And it builds my Multicam clip.…
