Lesson 14. Multicam Editing > Preparing the Project

Preparing the Project

In this lesson, you will edit multicam footage using a different video standard than DV-NTSC, which you have been using throughout this book. The multicam footage is a music video originally shot using the HDV format, then converted to DV-PAL using the QuickTime Conversion within Final Cut Pro. (You will learn to convert media files in a later lesson.) To preserve the original aspect ratio of the HDV footage, which is 16:9, the DV-PAL Anamorphic setting was used in the conversion process.

Note

The HDV footage was shot at 29.97 frames per second with the pixel dimensions of 1440 x 1080, which has an aspect ratio of 16:9 and was converted to DV-PAL Anamorphic, which is a 25-frames-per-second format with the pixel dimensions of 720 x 576. The DV PAL Anamorphic format has an aspect ratio of 4:3, but since it is anamorphic, it will automatically stretch to 16:9.
