    Multicam: sync angles with multiple clips.

    Sasha_Baych

      Good time of day everyone. I have beed working on the project that involves a lot of multicam syncing and editing.

      At first I was very inspired with Premiere CC new multicam audio sync feature. However, I suddenly realized that there is no way to sync multiple clips from different cameras (angles, bins, etc.) the way PluralEyes does it. Only single-clip angles to a given audiom or multiple clips from one bin to audio.

       

      So please, correct me if I'm wrong. Is there a way to sync angles with multple clips in Preliere CC?

          Hi Sasha_Baych,

          Check out this help article: http://helpx.adobe.com/premiere-pro/using/create-multi-camera-source-sequence.html

           

          You can place all the angles into on bin, and then select the bin.

          Right-click (Windows), or Ctrl-click (Mac OS) and choose > Create Multicamera Source Sequence

          In the Create Multicamera Source Sequence dialog box, click "Audio."

          You are now set up with angles synched by audio, similar to the way you'd expect with PluralEyes.

           

          Will that work for you? Let us know.

           

          Thanks,

          Kevin

            Thank you for the reply.

             

            I have watched about a dozen tutorials and read the user manual before posting to the forums.

             

            The problem is that I do not understand is the following: in the situation when I have multiple video and audio angles with multiple clips in each of them (all in the same format and often overlapping) how Premiere undestands which clip belongs to which angle. Otherwize, how can I let Premiere know which clips belong to which angle. Because at the moment, what I get I way much more angles than I actually have in addition to the fact that all clips are messed up.

             

            Thanks again.

              That's probably the issue.  With Premiere Pro multicam, standard practice is to have one continuous shot per camera.  Using that shooting method, the auto-features would probably work much better.  For a project of your complexity, you're probably better off creating the multicam sequence manually.

                Well, this only makes Premiere extremely ineffcient for a rather common case of multicam DSLR workflow.

                Hope they will come up with more effecient batching and sync solution, or any way to assign camera angles to clips before syncronization similarly to PluralEyes 3 and FCPX. Or for that matter a simple ability to sync bins instead of clips. 

                 

                Unfortunately for now Premiere is not a solution for me. Sad that I can't make my movie in Premiere, since I am quiet inspired about the software. It didn't live up to the expectations.

                 

                Anyway, thatks for the reply and help.

                  Is there any plan from Adobe to address this?

                  FCPX totally has this right.  They even allow you to re-sync within a sequence if things get out-of-whack. With Premiere's automatic audio-based syncing already being pretty decent, it would be really nice to have the ability to assign multiple clips to a single camera.
