Thread: Switching Between Video Sources

    Default Switching Between Video Sources

    Hi,
    Recently I filmed an event with 6 cameras. The filming lasted for about 3 hours, so that's 18 hours of footage. Now I need to edit the footage from each camera into one 3 hour video (for different angles). And rather than cutting pieces out of each source (which would take a long time) I was wondering if there's some kind of software where each source plays at the same time in a window, then I just hit a key to send which source I want to be using to a "master output"? So say I wanted to have angle A currently being shown then cut to Angle B, I could just hit a key and then that would happen on the master output which is being recorded into the 3 hour video.

    Sorry if that doesn't make sense to anyone, I'm new to this.
    Many thanks,
    Dylan

    You can do it using a multicam tool in an NLE, the only NLE I know how to go about doing it with is Adobe Premiere, it has a very elegant way of synching your clips ready to begin but it is restricted to 4 cameras.

    Sony Vegas would allow you to do your 6 cameras, but I don't know how well it does it. A quick search brings up this I havn't watched it so if it's no good I'm sure youll find others.
