    Tutorial on multicam editing

    I have this basic mutlcam tutorial but I feel like I need more indepth multicam help. If anyone can provide links to video tutorials, I appreciated. It seems like every group clip multicamera editing creates its own sequence. I guess that means I have to sticth all those individual sequences into a main sequence, correct? If so, can someone show me how that is done? Thanks!

    Re: Tutorial on multicam editing

    4 clips for example creates a multigroup sequence.

    Lay down this at timeline and after you enable 4 (or 8) camera view hit play and choose between F9-F12 to select between the 4 clips, which one of them will be on.

    I haven't seen anything easier.

    Re: Tutorial on multicam editing

    Okay, so I guess my question should have been, what else is there to multicamera besides what's showing in that basic multcam video tutorial I just listed above? If not, then I guess I'm eqiuped. So here's what I need help on.

    1. I have seen this has been done but I forgot the exact step, will someone help me refresh my mind on this? I've made In/Out mark on the source monitor. How do I create a new set of copy from just the In/Out?

    2. How do I add all the sequences into one main sequence?

    Thanks for helping me out.

    1. Click and drag from the source to a bin to create a subclip.

    2. I don't quite get this.

    Re: Tutorial on multicam editing

    I see. Thanks. As for the second question, since multicam create its own sequence and if I have a lot of clip groups, I will have a lot of sequences. So, how do I combine all of these sequences into one main/master sequence so I can export out as QT-F?

    Re: Tutorial on multicam editing

    Every group of clips creates its own sequence (multicam sequence) that you apply on timeline and cut it there (by selecting the order of the cameras).

    The best thing is to copy (after you finish editing the multicam) all the clips of the sequence to a MAIN sequence of yours and keep going on adding other clips from other multicam sequences.

    Then you will end up with a MAIN sequence that you will be able to QT ref from.

    (take a look here for a one pic guide I made for multicam)

    Re: Tutorial on multicam editing

    Hi,

    Alcy:
    How do I add all the sequences into one main sequence?

    If you have multiple sequences (A, B, C, and D) and you want to make one sequence from them, click and drag one of them to the source monitor, mark in and out at the beginning and end and press overwrite.  This will create a new sequence (E).  You can now repeat these steps with B, C and D, adding them to E.

    Hope that helps.

    Re: Tutorial on multicam editing

    Meaning that instead of double clicking at them to load at timeline, dragging them at the source monitor first, makes them behave as a single clip?

    Re: Tutorial on multicam editing

    In Avid you can edit any sequence into any other the same way you do a normal media clip.

    Drag the sequence(s) you want to edit into the MAIN sequence into the source monitor.

    Mark your IN and Out in the source monitor.

    Make sure the correct Video and Audio tracks are selected and patched correctly from source to record

    Mark in on the MAIN timeline and use the B or V key (to Insert or Overwrite edit ) your sequence into the MAIN timeline.

     

    FWIW when editing sequences into a new sequence I find the "Toggle Source Record" button, lower left in your timeline very useful. It allows you to switch between seeing  the source (Sequence) and record Sequence in the timeline.

    Please make Enter Slip and Enter Slide mode selection available for mapping (to buttons or KB) via the Command Palette.

    Hi George,

    sverkalo:

    Loading a sequence into the source monitor merely allows you to use it as you would anything else in the source monitor; in other words, it allows you to edit the sequence (or parts of the sequence) into another sequence.  Even in the source monitor, the sequence is still made up of the individual clips that were used to create it.

    Hope that makes sense.

    adios,
    Carl

    Re: Tutorial on multicam editing

    Many thanks for all your help. The main thing is treat the multicam sequeces just like any other media. Got it! I didn't know this.

    I'll be back with more question if I encountered more multicam issues.

    Again, thanks a bunch!

    Believe it or not, even if I like and try to test every aspect of MC, never had done that one!

    Thanks you both about this Andrew and Carl.

    Re: Tutorial on multicam editing

    Okay back for more multicam question. For some reason, the Z1 footage always end up in being clip 1 one I'm grouping the clips. How do I get the EX1 footage to be clip 1 instead? The problem is, when Z1 is clip 1, MC uses Z1's audio as the default and I don't want that.

    Please help.

    Re: Tutorial on multicam editing

    Well, looks like I found the answer here already. According to that thread, it seems like the short-cut keys to change it in multi-cam mode does not change the order in the sequence. I'll stick with the renaming or re-arranging in Scrip tab.
