    Multi Camera Mode - 1. Just a glance

    Not everyone is interested in the Multicam mode of MC, and those who are can find things a little difficult.
    I was quite familiar with Avid Liquid's Multicam mode...... but when I began to test MC I found that the implemenation was quiote different.

    There is an excellent chapter on the Multi Camera Mode in Avid Advanced Guide for MediaComposer and Symphony.


    (Url to Guides updated Jan.12.2010)    The Advanced Guides can now be found as follows:

    Avid Advanced Guide for Media Composer and Symphony, V3.0
    http://cdn.pinnaclesys.com/SupportFiles/attach/MCAdvancedGuide.pdf

    Avid Media Composer Advanced Guide for release v3.5
    http://cdn.pinnaclesys.com/SupportFiles/attach/MCAdvancedGuide_v3_5.pdf

    Avid Media Composer Advanced Guide for release v4.0
    http://cdn.pinnaclesys.com/SupportFiles/attach/MCAdvancedGuide_4.0.pdf


    For us newcomers reading Advanced Guides before we know the basics can be frustrating.

    My tutorial here doesn't even mention timecodes or multigroups or sound TC's or source-orientated controls.......................................

    It should be used as a prelude to getting down to reading the manual.

    I expect the simplicity of my tutorial will cause a deluge of comments and suggestions.
    I welcome them... That's one of the purposes of these tutorials - to stimulate and provoke reactions that will benefit us all.
    Good luck!

    Regards,
    Douglas

    @ Douglas

    I have a personal request, if at all possible...

    I am already trying for hours to see your tutorial of multi cam editing....but the internet here in Mali (West-Afrika)
    is so slow, that I only manage to get to a 38% of the total clip.

    Could you make a downloadable version of this one to help me out here? Then I can use my download manager to get it in more easy ...

    Tell me what is possible, thanks!

    Re: Multi Camera Mode - 1. Just a glance

    I have been following this tutorial to do a multi-cam edit. My clips use a mark-in point to sinc. I got a as far as adding the multicam sequence to the time-line. When I try switching cameras, by clicking on the muticam window, the green line moves but i get gonged and the edit point does not transfer to the time line. I am missing a step somewhere but can't figure what? What should I look for and check?

    Re: Multi Camera Mode - 1. Just a glance

    MAC,

    Last week I did a multicam edit session.
    First time since I made the tutorial, so I actually watched my tutorial first - to remind me.

    I used the Mark-In as described. However I had only 2 cameras involved.

    Everything worked as I described.
    My experiences with Multicam are few and far between, so I am sorry I have no ideas as to what might be wrong.
    Are you using 2 clips or more?

    Regards,
    Douglas

    Re: Multi Camera Mode - 1. Just a glance

    Thanks Douglas, Your tutorial was spot-on - I had gotten confused about Sync-point, and the multi-cam settings. Once I got that sorted out in my head it worked like a charm. I was using two cameras, both with audio. I really like the option for picking which audio tracks go to the timleine - that saved a lot of time
