workflow for feature using multiple cameras (C300 and DSLR) and sync sound

hi,

I just got a gig cutting a low budget feature to be shot on the C300 and some 7D's with external sound on FCP. Would anyone mind sharing their thoughts on workflow. I've used both cameras for shorter pieces but never a feature.

I assume that we will transcode both camera's footage to ProRes before we cut but how did you deal with the external sound and syncing? I will have an assistant editor on the film so I want to instruct them from the beginning how to sync and transcode.

Did you transcode the footage and then sync it or sync and then transcode? Many of the scenes are going to be shot multicam but not all the cameras are going to be synced.

Any insight into this would be awesome!!!

Plural Eyes from Redgiant is what you want to sync your sound. It will save you hours of time trying to sync it manually.

Make sure each shot is slated and use a clapboard at each take.

Transcode your footage first. Make sure your Audio frame rate is EXACTLY the same as your video frame rate. Same goes for both cameras. Same frame size and frame rate.
