    Workflow - Multicam edit 3 Cams synced w/Pluraleyes

    Been trying to figure out the smoothest workflow. I have shots from 3 cameras, each camera stopped and started several times so there are multiple clips for each camera.

    Here's what I came up with. Anyone got a better way? The biggest pain about this method is that each mixdown must be done separately so there is a lot of waiting aroiund for one mixdown to finsih before starting the next. Wish there was a way to automate that function.

    1. Using AMA linked clips, create a timeline with all clips from all cameras and sync with Pluraleyes. I now have a sequence with 3 video tracks, all in sync. Using audio from Camera 1.

    2. Mark in and out at beginning and end.

    3. Select Camera one track and do a video mixdown. Do the same for camera 2 and 3.

    4. Select the audio track and do an audio mixdown.

    5. Autosync all mixdown clips and use to create a multicam timeline.

    This seems most efficient but I'm wondering if anyone has a faster method.

    Avid, can't we get a simple function where we can just use a timeline with multiple clips from multiple cameras in multicam mode? Instead of being limited to single clips.

    It depends on how many times the cameras were stopped altogether.

    Mostly I use pluraleyes to create a synchronization channel by then the "match frame" (created automatically mark in) and "Find Bin" features original footage that I join the group. I'll do it at all recording pause. When cut, when one disappears from the camera multicamu, go to the next group.


    A little awkward in the beginning, but the advantage is that splicing is linked to the original material for possible reconstruction.

    Do you ever plan on reconforming using the camera masters as sources?
