Multicam Editing in Adobe Premiere CC

October 31, 2019

It’s easy to perform a multi-camera edit in
Adobe Premiere CC. To start, go ahead and select the camera angles
you would like to use. Then right click on them and choose Create
Multi-Camera Source Sequence. A dialogue box will appear. From here, choose a synchronization option. Now, if all of your camera angles have audio,
you can tell Adobe Premiere to synchronize to the clips by using their audio tracks. Then press the okay button. This will create a multi-camera source sequence. Next, right click on the multi-camera source
sequence icon, and choose New Sequence from clip. Then use the keyboard shortcut shift 0 to
enter into multi-camera mode. Press the spacebar to start playing the sequence. As the sequence plays, go ahead and click
on the different camera angles. When the sequence stops, you will see all
your edit decisions. Now, to switch out a camera angle, park the
playhead indicator of the clip you want to change. Then hold down the alt key and click on the
new angle to switch to. If you need to short or lengthen a clip segment,
press the N key to activate the rolling edit tool. Click on an edit point to change. Then drag left or right to trim the edit point. Now you can back up to the front of the sequence
and press shift 0 to exit multi-camera mode. Fantastic, now you have the basics of performing
a multi-cam edit in Adobe Premiere CC. For other great tips like this, or to enroll

    How do you know what audio track is used in the multi sequence?

  • Reply elenignpl1 August 11, 2016 at 7:37 pm

    it might sound stupid😏 but how many videos can you multicam? 😏

    Using this automated method, how do you ensure that a clean audio track is selected from a third party source? IE from a recorder. Would the automated method continue to stick with the camera audio if you selected a clean track in the multi-select before right clicking?
