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. ;)

After 25 years as an editor, compositor, and VFX artist, frequent Creative COW poster and tutorial author Simon Ubsdell knows what he needs from a keyer -- and knew he wasn't getting good enough results from FCPX or Motion. Discussions in COW forums led him to create the highly regarded Hawaiki Keyer for Mac users using Apple Final Cut Pro X, Apple Motion, and Adobe After Effects and Premiere Pro on Mac as well. Enthusiasm expressed by COW members for its latest release led us to ask Simon for a tour of the even more advanced Hawaiki Keyer 3.0.

Using Apple FCPX for A DocumenTree

After 25 years of working on other people's documentaries, commercials, feature films, filmmaker Michael Angelo's first original project is the inspirational story of the Treeman of Venice Beach, a singular creation of a singular man whose combination of costume, body paint, live foliage, and 10-foot stilts is gently beguiling and deeply inspirational. With over 1000 hours of footage in a crazy number of formats over a period of years, collaboration among a far-flung team of volunteers with varying degrees of expertise (including none at all), A DocumenTree seemed like the ideal project for Michael to jump into Final Cut Pro X. Michael's longtime experience in a variety of disciplines has nevertheless allowed him to come at the issues of media management, metadata, offline-online workflows, and a variety of complex technical issues in some unusual, and, dare we say it, organic ways.

Managing FCPX Media Labs for Maximum Sanity & Minimum Chaos

Managing a shared storage environment for Apple FCPX is one thing. Now add 100+ students who are still learning the rules, and the challenges skyrocket. Fortunately, Andrew Gash's experience at Lakeland Florida's Kathleen High School has given him some great ideas for you that promise to make things as foolproof as possible, maximizing sanity and minimizing chaos. Even if your shared editing environment is in a post house or broadcast environment rather than a school, Andrew's advice is well worth heeding!
