- Once your footage is imported, it's worth taking the time…to add some extra metadata about the angles.…This'll make it easier down the road…as we start to work with the footage.…With clip selected, let's just take a look…at what we have here.…Now I've got some audio files,…which I don't need currently,…but this is the host and the guest.…But here's camera one, scene one.…Over here on the right is the inspector.…If you don't see it, you can simply click this button here…to open it up, and then select the Info panel.…
Where it says Basic, click and choose the Extended set…so you see more metadata.…We're going to use the Camera Angle and the Camera Name,…as well as Scene and Take.…So this is Scene 1, Take 1.…I know that from labeling the clips earlier.…And this is going to be camera one.…And a description of that is the HOST,…which I'll put into the camera angle.…Let's select shot two.…Scene 1, Take 1.…Wide Shot is the angle.…
And the name is CAM2.…There's CAM3, Scene 1, Take 1.…HOST.…CAM3.…Let's make the Chase camera, camera four.…
You'll learn essential preproduction strategies to get the right gear and place it in the right position. You'll also learn techniques for syncing the visuals and audio captured from each camera. Rich and James offer advice for directors running shoots in the field, as well as strategies for crew members who are building sets and logging footage. Finally, in chapters 7 and 8, they share techniques for multicamera postproduction with Final Cut Pro X and Premiere Pro. In these chapters, you'll learn how to create multicam clips, apply color correction, color match angles, switch between angles, and refine and master your edit.
