25 Camera Angles in 25 Minutes
Multicamera Editing in Final Cut Pro X
By Mark Spencer | February 05, 2012
Steve Martin (Ripple Training) and I just completed a tutorial on multi-camera editing for the Final Cut Pro X 10.0.3 update. In that tutorial, we used 5 camera angles from a 5-camera music video greenscreen shoot we produced, plus two other angles: one for clean audio, one for some motion graphics.
But we actually had more material than that. A lot more. We had 5 good takes of a particular song, each shot with 5 cameras - so 25 total creative options to choose from. What if I wanted to build an edit using all of these at once? Could I edit what was essentially a 25-camera shoot?
It turns out that it's incredibly fast and easy to do in FCP X.
Here's how I did it.
