LeftTurnLarry, Thanks very much for your advice, but that is what I am doing right now. What I would like to learn is Multicam editing (in Avid). In Multicam editing, all the cameras (whether two, three or four) must run simultaneously without any onestopping. Then in editing, you put each camera’s video footage on a separate video track and the audio from the main camera onone audio track. Each camera’s footage must have a sync mark at the beginning, say a flash from a still camera or if possible, from a clapper. All of these marks would be the “in” point. Then you hit play and using your keyboard you can switch between cameras, like they do on livetelevsion. That’s all I know. Perhaps if anyone knows of a book which explains this technique, please tell me. I know its easy on Premiere Pro, but I’m an Avid man. I would really like to learn how it’s done in Avid. The manual and Help explain how to go about it but I’d be better off bouncing my head against a concrete wall. Thanks again. Sham.
