This week on MacBreak Studio, Steve Martin from Ripple Training shows us how easy it is for anyone to create a multicam edit in Final Cut Pro X.
Got a few friends and a few iPhones and/or iPads? Got Final Cut Pro X? That's all it takes to put together your own multicam video. Next time you are at a party, a musical performance, or some other event, shoot it with a couple i-devices. Or create your own spontaneous music video as shown in today's episode.
Because Final Cut Pro X recognizes iPhones and iPads as separate cameras, you don't even need to name your angles. FCP X uses the audio from each camera to automatically synchronize the angles so all you do is import your footage, create the multicam clip automatically, and start editing, changing angles on the fly as the video plays in real time. It's quick, easy, a quite a lot of fun to do, as Steve demonstrates.
