I do two camera shoots and


I do two camera shoots and edits for all events. Ideally, a live switcher would save time, but you’re screwed if it’s not perfect. I load both cameras tapes into the Applied-Magic editor(real time capture) and drop A camera and B cameras footage onto the storyboard with the A/B roll transition between them. Next, find a visual or audio frame common to both A and B to synch to. Once you have a common synch point, you can play the footage and do a "live A/B switch, or shuttle to the next transition point and do the switch. You can go back and fix mistakes or change the transition properties. When you are happy with the A/B roll points, simply select generate.(about 5 or 10 seconds to generate) This replaces the two original footage clips with a new storyboard layout showing all the consectutive A and B clips with the transitions between them. Drop bars, some black, titles, and your done. There isn’t any rendering, so it’s ready to master out to the DVD. Way easy!
