GY-HM700U multicam edit in FCP
on Aug 20, 2009 at 9:28:00 pm

Hello

We just purchased a GY-HM700U camera and love the results we are getting.

My question deals with lengthy, live-event multi-cam productions. After a two hour play or recital, typically I have about six 3.45GB .mov files. Of course, they are instantly available in Final Cut Pro, but in order to make one multi-cam clip from three camera angles, I have been exporting a QT movie consisting of the six clips dragged to the timeline and essentially merged.

This takes forever. Is there another workflow that I am missing?

Thank you,

Blake Baldwin

In the PC world, you do a simple copy file1 + file2 etc with the /b switch and it will combine them into one file.

There are also simple utilities for this also.

Not sure on the MAC.

Thanks for the response.

I don't understand what you mean by with the /b switch. Please explain.

Thanks

I use windows and open a command prompt window.
If you want to combine several binary(video) files into one by using wildcards,include the /B switch, as the following example shows:

copy /b *.mov combinedfile.mov

There are free utilities that also do this.

I found this for mac's
