since you ask for step by step instruction, go here
I am not sure what the video says, but Maxim is great.
and in Step #5 - to enable the multicamera monitor - when it says 'from the pop-up menu' - click the wrench icon
You imported and sync'd - you are half-way there
Thanks for the reply dummergold. I've watched that video but it doesn't help with the problem I have. Because the footage plays in the program monitor, not the source monitor, I can't crate the clips in the way I usually would from the source monitor i.e. select the section I want to use from the original footage, create a clip, and then insert that into the master programme. That's what I'm struggling with.
Thats how I edit multicamera, in the Program monitor, using the 'multicamera source sequence' and enable multi-camera with the program monitor wrench
Ok but how does that work when I've got 4 different lots of footage which I need to intercut?
I am editing a basic interview shot on two cameras and cutting away to some still images.
The rushes are 4 lots of film about 10 mins in length.
I inputted the footage from the two cameras and created a new sequence for each using the multi camera audio synchronisation method (which worked great).
So how do I go about creating my edit? Something tells me I'm going about it in the wrong way.
Do I need to create my edit using single camera shots and then create multi camera sequences for each individual clip? It seems so laborious as its all already synced up for two cameras.
humm, sounds like your 4 lots do not overlap in time, and that there is space between each lot. So would that be 4 multi-camera sequences with the two cameras?
If so, why even multicamera edit that? and just set up to Video tracks, sync the audio and opacity keyframe between the two tracks.
Good to get your multi-camera edit workflow going proper though.
Sounds like you need to multi-camera edit your 4 sequences separately, unless you sync each lot with its corresponding clip and put on the same timeline, then do one sequence and one multi-camera edit
Ok...after more tutorial watching things area little clearer....but I still have a problem.
I've managed to organise the rushes into 3 lots of two-camera sequences, synced together using the audio option.
I now see how I can cut between the two cameras and create the edit. The problem is I don't want the interview to play consecutively. I want to be able to edit back and forth using different sections of the hour long interview over the three sequences I've synched. However I don't seem to be able to do this as I can't create subclass from the synched sequences. It looks like I can only create my subclass from the original footage (single camera) and then synch each individual clip. Is this correct or am I missing something?
*subclips....not subclass :/
Sounds like you want to add the 'razor cut' the interview, insert a still, return to the interview, razor cut, insert,,,
if so, copy your multicamera edited sequence, rename the copy, and edit as above
