Greenscreen and Multicam

Hey Guy's, what's the best workflow for making a multicam clip with greenscreen footage.
I have 2 camera's both are greenscreen, do I first key them out export them an reimport the keyed footage for a multicam?
Or do I just make a multicam of the original footage and then key them in the multicam clip?

I'm asking this for obvious performance issue's when using and a key and a multicam clip?

Thanks in advance & greetings
Michel

When are you planning to do the final composite and what application will you be using for that?

Hey Jeremy,

I'm doing everything in FCPx so composite and keying all in FCPx

I think it would be best to do each composite in the timeline, and not the multiclip, although it's an interesting idea.

Without knowing the specifics of the composite, I would imagine that would be the most flexible way to keep the composite looking its best.

If the background remains the same for each angle, then I guess you could try and key each angle in the angle editor, but you'd have to finish the composite clip by clip in the timeline.

That's what I thought to, I have a different background for every angle. So it would be best to key and composite them first and afterwards make a multicam of the exports. I think performance wise this would be the best option. And keeps me flexibel while switching in the multicam without forgetting to switch the background as well afterwards. If anybody knows a different way?

Thanks Jeremy

That's the workflow I've come to use. Key first, then create the multiclip, then edit. The nice thing is that if you need to re-key for any reason, you just need to replace the footage in the multiclip to update the edit.
