Multicam - Cropping the camera
on Apr 16, 2013 at 2:51:34 am

On an interview, the cameraman on one of the cameras has composed the shot badly, and I want to zoom in and recompose it. If I do this after the multicam edit, I will have to copy and paste the attributes of the transform to all the clips from this camera (that is tiresome).
Would it be best to crop and transform this camera first, "share" it to a new file and re-import it. (Then do the multicam)

Or is there a better workflow?

Not a multicam wizard, but I think you can open the multicam clip in the angle editor (right click on it for the menu), apply your transform to the clip, close the angle editor and then just proceed.

That is correct. Any corrections that you want applied to all instances of the camera should be done in the angle editor, and it will update throughout the project(s).

Thanks guys.
Much better solution than cropping, sharing and re-importing

You can also simply copy the transform applied on any clip in the storyline (highlight the clip and Command C copy it's attributes) - select multiple other clips, then and use Paste Attirbutes to apply the same crop across multiple scenes. Might be harder or easier depending on how far along you are building your timeline.

It makes sense to make these changes upstream in the Angle Viewer if you want the correction to persist, but if you just want to change a bunch of clips already on your storyline, cut and paste attributes works just fine.
