MULTICAM SHOOT - Getting Syncing Right
on Jun 7, 2015 at 3:57:39 am

Hi all. I certainly am a newbie and scoured the web to no avail.

I am shooting some live acousting guitar/vocals videos whilst recording the audio through pro tools in my small studio room. I have no idea where to start in syncing the cameras. 2 x Canon 700d.

I’d love to have two separate static camera angles and need to be able to control the whole operation without an assistant.

1. Should I hit record manually on two separate cameras and rely on the camera audio, so FCP can automatically sync the cameras? (Manually import video to FCP later) or

2. Is there a jam-syncing hardware device that I can use to do this? So I can just hit record in FCP or a remove control or something? (Record live, straight into FCP?)

I can’t even get past this first learning hurdle :O Sorry guys…

How would you guys do it?

One simple way is to use a manual clapper, either clap sticks or just your hands, or if there is a physical mixer in the chain, they usually have a beep tone generator button to lay down three beeps.
