Lesson 14. Multicam Editing > Shooting Multiple Cameras

Shooting Multiple Cameras

  • Syncing the multiple camera sources is an important part of the multiclip process. There are different ways you can sync multiple cameras. On a professional multicam shoot, a master timecode generator is used to feed the same timecode to each camera or recorder. With this approach, the timecode number on each source identifies the same point in a scene or event. If this isn't an option, you can also record a visual or sound cue, such as a clapboard, an audio pop, or a camera flash, on all sources before the action begins or after it ends.

  • When shooting with multiple cameras, you often assign each camera a number or letter that identifies the camera angle. Cameras are often numbered or labeled from left to right as you look at the stage or action. As part of the multiclip functionality in Final Cut Pro, clips are organized according to angle number or letter. Take time before and during the shoot to assign angle numbers and properly label the source tapes accordingly.

    Note

    You can group up to 128 sources or angles into one multiclip.
