Join Steve Holyhead for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting up the timeline for multi-cam editing, part of Migrating from Final Cut Pro 7 to Avid Media Composer 5.5.
As a culmination of our study of editing tools and timeline functionality, we are…now going to cover multi-cam editing.…Multicam is a powerful tool that's also a microcosm of many of the things that…we've covered in the course so far.…There are two main ways that Multicam is used in production.…The first way is to use multiple cameras to capture different angles of action…on set or on location and then use those group clips to cut together a scene.…The pace and the timing of the events in the scene will be based upon the editing…of the action of dialog.…
The other way to use Multicam is to capture multiple different angles of action,…at for example a sports or music event and then cut between the different…angles as the action plays out in real time.…In Chapter 3 we mapped some multi-cam functionality to our custom tool palette here.…We have got the Quad Split button, the Nine Split button, the Swap Camera Banks…button, go to Previous in Group, go to Next in Group.…By the way, go to Previous and Next are also mapped to your up and down arrows…
