Join James Ball for an in-depth discussion in this video Logging the footage, part of Multi-Camera Video Production and Post.
- Alright, it's been a few days since we had our shoot,…and I'm ready to move on to post-production.…Now, one of the first things I need to do…is get the footage ingested.…This can involve copying or logging.…In this case, I've got a bus-powered drive…that came out of the field,…and this is just simply a transfer drive,…we've already backed this up in two other places…within our office,…we use Drobos in the office with some redundancy storage,…but really any solution is going to be great.…We also archive the raw footage eventually…to LTO, which is a tape-based archive…for storing of large amounts of data.…
But, what I need to do, since I'm going to be…working with multiple angles,…is use a drive that's actually properly rated for this.…So, in this case, I need to get it off of…the bus-powered drive,…onto something a bit more robust.…Here, I'm using a small portable RAID,…this is a Drobo Mini with four discs striped together,…using a USB 3.0 or a Thunderbolt connection,…so that should be fast enough for the editing I need to do,…
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.
