Join James Ball for an in-depth discussion in this video Create multicam clips, part of Multi-Camera Video Production and Post.
- Now that all the clips are loaded,…and we've taken all the time to tag…all the necessary metadata.…Which is an optional step,…but I'm going to encourage you…because it's a good idea.…We can now merge things into a mutli-camera clip.…Now, there's lots of ways to merge.…If you've got time code…or time of day date stamps on the clips…that would make it easier.…But, Final Cut Pro X can also use the audio of the clip…if you've got it.…Because we went through great care while shooting…to make sure that there was decent audio…on all the cameras,…this is going to be pretty easy.…
Let's select all these clips here in the project.…And what I want to choose is File New,…and you'll see Multicam Clip.…If that's grayed out it might be because…you don't have that panel active.…Notice how it's grayed out there.…So File New,…and it may or may not be available.…Just make sure that you actually…have everything highlighted and active.…And it'll make it much easier.…There we go.…File, New, Multicam Clip.…Now, I recommend using the audio for synchronization,…
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. By the end of the course, you'll have a thorough start-to-finish understanding of the multicamera production process.
