Join James Ball for an in-depth discussion in this video Syncing cameras with timecode, part of Multi-Camera Video Production and Post.
- Depending upon the type of environment…you're used to working in,…time code may be something that's a part of your world…or completely new.…A lot of people with more traditional video backgrounds…grew up with time code.…We used it when we were editing.…We used it on set.…Other people who are more of the DSLR generation…have no idea.…Jim, what is time code first off, before we talk about…its importance on a multi-camera shoot.…- Well, time code is really the smallest measurement…of a piece of visual imagery,…a frame of film, a frame of video.…

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.
