If you are going to do a multicamera production, you are going to need to switch between multiple camera angles and video feeds. This is going to require a production switcher. Which one is best for you? In this video, Richard Harrington discusses how to switch a live video feed with hardware.
- If you're going to do a multi-camera production,…you're going to need to switch between multiple angles.…This is going to require a production switcher.…There are many different manufacturers out there…that make these, from older traditional ones…that were just pieces of hardware…that had physical inputs to something here…that's sort of a hybrid that uses a computer…but some hardware devices.…In my studio, we have a production switcher…from a company called Black Magic Design, but again,…there are many different alternatives out there…that you can try, and in just a moment,…I'll even show you how you can use a laptop…and some capture devices to do the same thing.…
Now ultimately what happens in the environment…is that different angles are going to be running…into your switcher.…In this case, we're on location in the studio…and I've got three cameras hooked up.…You can see that when I'm looking here,…I can see Camera 1, 2, and Camera 3.…Now this is pretty straightforward,…but it'll be easy to switch between these in real time.…
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.
