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 software.
- If purchasing a full-on switcher seems a bit out of…your price range, there are many different software tools…available that allow you to actually do switching…and encoding on a laptop.…Now, you will need some hardware, because computers don't…have video input devices for the most part.…Some sort of breakout box or device…that will make it easy,…and that's what I've done here.…I actually have three video sources running into one…laptop, and it's pretty amazing that we can pull this off.…Now, in this case, I'm using devices from two different…manufacturers to show you some of the different…options that are out there.…
First up, this is the UltraStudio lineup from Black Magic,…although lots of different manufacturers make these,…and this is called a mini-recorder.…On this side, it has an input.…You could take either SDIN, and this is the HD/SDI…option, so not 4K, but you can pull in a high definition…video signal, and that signal can also have audio embedded…on it, or you could bring in an HDMI.…It's one or the other.…
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.
