    Pluraleyes & multicam

    Any good current workflows for using Pluraleyes to make multicam clips?

    We have a mixture of 5D clips (yuk) and Canon XF clips.

    So my 5D clips have TOD in the Aux 1 but nothing useful in the start timecode (all start at 0)

    However we can drop the 5D clips on a sequence by AUX1 code and then drop the XF clips on V2 and A3-4 also in timecode order.

    Send the AAF out to Pluraleyes and re import the result and we do get all the clips lined up by the audio (lets forget the 5D audio offset...)

    But what's the easiest way to make multicam clips from the sequence? I can make subsequences and make subclips from those but they aren't multicam clips.

    Thanks

    I use the method of ordered sequence "Match Frame" and now "Find Bin". Math frame, create a straight-In point. Subsequently, in the bin marked clips create Multicam, according to In point. Math frame and Find Bin I have mapped to the keyboard.

    I say double-checking the sync results from PE is time well spent. lock your Sequence trks.Then accept the one at a time grind or compromises such as mixdowns or auto sync clips.

    I also use Vilem's method, match framing from the sequence to the master clip then find bin to open the appropriate bin, dragging the clip to a new work bin, then grouping by inpoint. If I want to cut the resulting multiCam clip back into the synced sequence (or better yet a copy of the synced squence) I load the muliCam into the soure monitor, pick an inpoint in it, then reverse match frame to get the inpoint in the sequence.

    Re: Pluraleyes & multicam

    If a 3rd Party company can create a winning product (PluralEyes) that allows an easy AAF export of a timeline to return back into Avid in minutes, with clips now in sync with each other, can folks INSIDE AVID create an add-on utility that can do the same AAF Export/Import idea-- with one simple job: return GroupClips from an already synced timeline.  I think it would sell like H O T C A K E S if priced like PE.
