    Musical/Music Video Editing Avid v Premier Pro

    Hi Friends

    I am doing a feature length musical in a few months (La La Land, Chicago esque) and am refining my work flow. There will be about 7 musical numbers. I recently cut a music video on Adobe Premiere Pro (ugh) where it was reasonably simple to create a rather large multi camera sequence which essentially acts as a very big grouped clip and allows keyboard mapping of the shots etc. etc. . See https://helpx.adobe.com/ca/premiere-pro/how-to/edit-music-video.html and watch the movies there. it is quite simple. This stuff on the Avid forum doesn't match up sadly https://community.avid.com/forums/t/100731.aspx

    Please look at the Adobe link especially the second movie. You can sellect all the takes in your bins of a song and your master music and select "create multi camera source sequence" What this does is analyze all the wave forms and sinks every take into a sunc sequence with as many video tracks as needed. MOS stuff can be added on top of this. Once that is done you select "make sequence for clip" and it gives you a sequence with all the various video takes nested nicely in one video track. It is essentially a great big group clip. From there you do your typical add edit and trim mode type of editing as you would in Avid. If you need to ammend your sequence and add more stuff that is easy also. As I said previousy you can map the shots or groups of shots to your keyboard. I see this as a perfect editing workflow for a musical but do not want to use premiere pro. I am an Avid Editor please help me do the equivalent on Media Composer and heck i bet with an vocals only track i could use scriptsync and phrase find.

    I want to do this in Avid how do I do it ? Please note the internet is bursting at the seams with how to do stuff on all the Adobe products, not so much for Avid. It is often a real chore to find a video on how to do something on Avid.

    Thanks

    Gary

    Hi, 
    Below is perhaps the best, most authoritative, Avid insider's lesson: it may answer all your questions...

    ------

    Check out “Waveform Sync and Create Group from Sequence” from Jeffrey Lomicka on Vimeo.

    The video is available for your viewing pleasure at https://vimeo.com/314973861

    Assuming it's a Media Composer question, just put it in the appropriate Media Composer forum (i.e. Mac or PC). Most of the regular contributors check all active topics, so it won't get missed.
