Join James Ball for an in-depth discussion in this video Matching footage via transcoding, part of Multi-Camera Video Production and Post.
- In a shoot, it's very easy to end up with…multiple file types.…Now, in this particular shoot,…we were in a professional studio.…So, the studio cameras and the Blackmagic…pocket cameras were both recording…the flavors of ProRes, but we were using…ProRes LT on the smaller cameras…and for the overhead angle and the chase cam,…and we were using ProRes on the other angles.…What this meant is that while both…of those are compatible, they're not identical.…Some multi camera tools are going to…want you to have the exact same codec.…
Now, ProRes flavors usually mix together,…but we did have that angle from GoPro.…Well, it might be necessary to…transcode everything to line up.…Let me show you an example on how…to transcode that GoPro footage into ProRes.…I've launched Compressor, this is a program from Apple…that'll make it easy to convert things.…So we'll go to the current project here and click Add File.…Now, I can navigate to those GoPro clips.…So let's go to that Transfer drive, locate the GoPro angle.…
You won't have these files because they're too big…
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.
