This is where you can use the sound of the clap…and its closing to bring everything together in post,…by creating a marker at the sync point.…You could also assist the synchronization of your clips…by recording clear audio on each of your cameras.…In this course we'll explore two different scenarios.…A two camera interview, followed by a music video shoot,…that will give you insights…into various multi-camera workflows.…
