Adobe has released a major release in their Adobe Production Studio. In this article, Creativecow leader, Aanarav Sareen, an Adobe Certified Expert in Premiere, gives us an overview of the new Multi-Cam feature in Premiere Pro 2.0.
In order to edit multi-camera footage within Premiere Pro 2.0, there are certain steps you have to follow. This tutorial briefly describes the process of getting to the multi-camera interface.


Step 1: Importing your footage


The first step of the process is to import your footage into the project. To import footage, do one of the following

  • File > Import
  • Ctrl + I

     

    Throughout this tutorial we are assuming that all our sources are synchronized during import.


    Step 2: Create new sequences for each of your sources.


    The second step of the process is to create a new sequence for each of your different sources. For example, if you have 4 different sources, you would create 4 sequences: sequence 01, sequence 02, sequence 03, and sequence 04.  To create a new sequence, use one of the following methods

    • File > New > Sequence
    • New Item > Sequence






       

      Step 3: Place each of the sources in their respective sequences.



      The third step of the process is to place each of your sources into their respective sequences. In other words, place the footage from your first source into video track 1 of the sequence 01 sequence and repeat the process for all the different sources.  

       

      Footage from the first source goes into video track 1 of sequence 01



      Footage from the second source goes into video track 1 of sequence 02


      Footage from the third source goes into video track 1 of sequence 03

       

      Footage from the fourth source goes into video track 1 of sequence 04




      Step 4: Create another new sequence.

      The fourth step of the process involves creating another new sequence: multicam.

       

      Step 5: Place the sequences into different video tracks.



      In the multicam sequence, place sequence 01 into video track 1, sequence 02 into video track 2, sequence 03 into video track 3 and sequence 04 into video track 4.

       


      Step 6: Create another new sequence.



      Create another new sequence and call it final.

       


      Step 7: Enable multi-camera



      In the final sequence, place the multicam sequence into video track 1. Once placed in the sequence, simply right click on the multicam sequence > Multi-camera > Enable


       


      Step 8: The mutli-cam interface



      With the multi-camera functionality enabled, go to the top right corner of your program monitor and click on the little flyout menu. In the flyout menu select multi-camera monitor.

       




       

      Step 9: Edit!



      Once you get to the multi-camera interface, you can start editing. Press ‘play’ in the multi-camera window and select the source that you want. To save even more time, use the shortcut keys 1, 2, 3 and 4. Each of these different short cut keys represents a different source.




       

      Step 10: Fine-tune!



      While editing with the multi-camera monitor, you may notice that a few of your cuts are not exactly where you want them to be. To fine tune these edits, close the multi-camera monitor and return to the final sequence. Once in the final sequence, you may notice that the cuts made in the multi-camera monitor have automatically made it down to the timeline. To change the angle of a specific cut, simply right click on the specific clip > multi-camera and select a different camera angle.

      As America's Test Kitchen enters its 15th season on PBS, they've made the switch to Premiere Pro Creative Cloud. Post-production Supervisor and director Herb Sevush has been with the show from the beginning, and confessed some trepidation moving away from FCP 7, but has found it to be a great fit for their data-intensive, increasingly 4K multicam production, and his work with remote editors. Here, Herb offers some insights into both the why and the how of their switch, with special attention to Premiere Pro CC's approach to multicam.
