    MultiCam editing for PPCS5

    kaydawgy1999

      So I'm editing 3 canon 7d's and 1 zoomh2  for external audio.  I've run PluralEyes to sync up the audio and all 3 camera's onto the timeline.  Pluraleyes was spot on for syncing and now Ive created a new multicam sequence and dropped the first sequence into the timeline.  Right click enable multicamera and open the multi camera monitor.  I'm recording how I want to switch between camera's by simply clicking on each clip in sequence of how I want to see it.  Now what if I goof up completely and just want to restart the whole sequence again after I've made so many edits?  I can't seem to find a "revert" button.  Also, what if there is just 1 or 2 that I want to edit.  Can I adjust it from the multicamera monitor or does it have to be from the sequence timeline?

          You should be able to just go back in time inside the multicamera window and redo your edits.  They should overwrite what you're already done.  I say should because CS4 had a bug with this option.  I haven't tried it in CS5 yet to see if it's been fixed.

           

          As a normal part of your workflow, however, I suggest doing a "rough cut" in the multicamera window, and then going over the whole thing again from the sequence to make your "fine cut" adjustments.

            Yes, that bug has been fixed in CS5... just move your CTI on your timeline before the section you want to redo and start again! It's a really easy workflow...
