    Using this as an example. I want to find an easier way to do the quick cuts that you would see in videos like this. Where there are lots of quick half second or less clips. I asked this in another forum but was told that there is no easy way of doing this. That it just takes a lot of time and patience. Wanted to double check to see if there is a plugin or a tutorial or anything to make the process easier?

    Well, if you wanted something automated, Pinnacle Studio has a feature that allows you to add some footage, then add music and then the program will analyze the music and create a music video for you. Different styles are available, and even a style that would have all sorts of super fast cuts. The downside is you have no control of exactly what each clip shows – but then again if you wanted that control you would take your time with patience and work it out!

    I believe that can be done by experimenting with the multicam feature in professional NLE. By rapidly changing cameras, cropping some upper clips and later adding a main video below the changes of the cameras. I’m not completely sure, but now I have a deep curiosity to test it out. Still, like doublehamm mentioned, if you want more control you need time and lots of patience.

    HA! Yeah you COULD lay all tracks in Vegas and play “Whack-A-Mole” with the multi-cam editor.
