Join James Ball for an in-depth discussion in this video Technical matching of cameras, part of Multi-Camera Video Production and Post.
- So, whether you've done this…aesthetic assessment of the cameras…before or after, at some point you're…going to have to turn to the tech side of…things and actually try and dial things in…on a technical precision-based evaluation.…- Yeah, one of the things…that's going to become critically important,…particularly with multi-camera post production,…is that the cameras match up, now, of course,…getting a camera to aesthetically match is…a lot easier when you're using the same…frame rate and some of the same menu settings,…but what I'm talking about is just the sheer…technical backend, it becomes incredibly…difficult to do a multi-camera edit if…the footage isn't matched, now many older…systems required that it was actually the…same codec, and everything was exactly the same.…

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.
