Hello Andy, your tutorial was excellent and got me through most of my question but I ran into a problem today and wanted to see if you could look here (http://forums.creativecow.net/thread/344/15176#15176) and see if you had any suggestions.

Thanks in advance and have a wonderful day

Please help anyone? Multicam help!

My multicam I am attempting is 4 cams.

1 cam -29.97 fps
2 cam 30fps
3 cam 30fps
4 cam 30fps

Cams 2-4 are all synced fine.
Cam 1 appears to be off.

When I view my Multicam 4 viewer with timecode overlay I notice that cams 2-4 all match, however Cam 1 timecode is not in Sync with the rest. It appears slightly off.

How can I adjust it to match?

When you create a multiclip, it has to conform to a particular frame rate. It sounds like it's conforming to 30fps. Cam 1 is 29.97 which is not the same frame rate so therefore the TC will be slightly off.

FCP X conforms the TC of non-matching sources to the multiclip frame rate. So a clip that might have different TC might still be in sync.

If you synched the sources using TC, then Cam 1 will probably not be synched properly. You can adjust its sync in the angle editor manually, or resync using audio which will ignore TC when syncing.

Very weird but I Got everything to Sync.

I recreated the Mutliclip and used the default settings and checked sync audio.
The new mutliclip conformed to 29.97 and not 30 which I had set to with custom settings before.

The timecode for Clip 1 is slightly off but appears to be in Sync for some reason.

Thanks for your wonderful Tutorial.

Andy thanks for the tutorial. I Would like to know what system you were using. I edit a weekly public access show that is shoot with 5 (JVC GY-HM100) cameras, although some times we use as many as eight (the other 3 are Sony EX1, but usually 5) and I will be updating my system this week. I had been planning on a new MacPro, but am now considering a top of the line iMac with a SSD Drive and 32mb of ram and a Promise Pegasus 6 disk Thunderbolt drive. Now that you have worked on 13 stream I am hoping you can shed some light on this decision.

Well Keith, the tutorial video was recorded on my MacBook Pro with the footage playing off the system drive. As you can see in the video, it pretty much choked on 13 HD clips in their native formats, but in proxy, I was able to play them fine.

I had a similar experience when practicing the tutorial on my Mac Pro which is a 8 core Xeon 2.26ghz with 24gb RAM. The issue is one of hard drive speed for full rez clips or clips being played in their native formats. I would suspect that a thunderbolt RAID would fare much better under similar circumstances than just a little 1TB SATA drive.

Sorry Kevin. I was speaking to someone named Keith earlier today and juxtaposed his name for yours.

Andy -

Thanks for the tutorial, it was very thorough and detailed. I'm looking forward to part 2.

At the risk of seeming ungrateful I know it's X but you are allowed to use the word "tracks" - calling them "rails" was really pretty silly.

Sorry if I'm being a dick, I did appreciate the tutorial, I found it very helpful.

LOL. I thought that word was forever abandoned. ;)

Also, I hope you saw part two as well. I posted them both at the same time. I didn't want you to think that it was coming out down the road.
