first_imgWhat do you do when you have so many camera angles that the multi-camera monitor is no longer a viable option? Make sure you’re always choosing the best shot possible with this unconventional workaround in Premiere Pro.When working with projects such as single-camera music videos with performance footage and a narrative element, it’s easy to suddenly be dealing with something like thirty camera angles. At that point using the traditional multi-camera monitor may not be a viable solution, either because your computer can’t handle that many streams without the need of very low-resolution proxies or simply because keeping track of that many thumbnails is very difficult. The process explained in the video below could be the solution you’re looking for. (If you’re following the step-by-step walkthrough below the video, click on the images to enlarge them in a new tab.)1. Synchronize your footage in a new sequence with a separate track for each angle in the video.Whether it’s performance footage or a narrative storyline, the first step is very similar to a common approach to creating a traditional multi-camera workflow. As you can see in the image above, there’s a huge number of angles to deal with in this particular example.2. Color code groups of tracks that relate to each other so it will be easy to identify them later in the process.Right-click on each clip in the timeline and select Label to change its color. See the image above for an example.3. Use the Target Track feature to use this particular approach.Turn off the V1 Target Track by clicking the highlighted V1 to the left of Video Track 1. Create a new track at the top of all of your clips and name it Print Track. To target this track, make sure that you click on the V32 (or whatever number coincides with your number of tracks).This means that anything you paste or insert will go directly to this track. Since your Print Track is at the top of the order in your timeline, anything that appears on that track will be seen in the Program window.4. Use the Toggle Track buttons to the left of each clip to temporarily make a track viewable in the Program Monitor.Remember that whatever track is highest in the stack of tracks in your timeline will be viewable as long as the Track Output is enabled. So to see Video Track 1, for example, you would need to turn off each Track Output above it.5. Now that you’ve targeted the Print Track, anything you paste will appear anywhere the playhead is located. By using the razor blade (Quick Key: C), arrow (Quick Key: V), and the rolling edit tool (Quick Key: N) in conjunction with the copy and paste commands (Quick Keys: Command+C and Command+V), you can now begin selecting segments from any of your tracks.Additionally, you can use the up and down arrows to quickly snap the playhead to the beginning or ending of any clip located on the Print Track. This will be very useful when you can’t see the Print Track when choosing content from the lower tracks in your sequence. Pushing the up-arrow key moves backwards in time while the down-arrow key moves you forward in time.6. Choose your opening shot and let it play until you’re ready to switch to a different angle. Once the shot is complete, make a cut using the razor blade tool, switch to the arrow tool to select the clip, and hit the up arrow to return to the start of the sequence. (If your clip has empty space between it and 00:00:00:00, then position the playhead at the clip start for this first clip.) Next, hit Command +C to copy and Command +V to paste.You should now see a copy of the clip in the same point in time on the targeted Print Track. Continue in this manner until you’ve completed your edit.Results: Everything on the Print Track will now reflect your edits and will play back with ease even on a modest system. This method is time-consuming, but it can be a great solution once you’re able to use the quick-key commands without thinking. I’ve used this method in several scenarios:1.  When there wasn’t disk space or time to make proxies of a very large project.2.  When there were too many camera angles, and flipping between multiple pages in the multi-camera monitor was affecting my edit decisions.3.  When my clients try to edit content for themselves on very modest systems that require so much compression in the proxies that they can no longer tell if the shot is in focus or generally useable.How do you go about editing multi-angle projects?

first_imgRoger Federer warmed up for next month’s Wimbledon championships by swatting aside David Goffin 7-6(2) 6-1 to win the Halle Open title for the 10th time on Sunday.The Swiss fired seven aces and broke Goffin’s serve three times to down his Belgian opponent in 83 minutes for his 102nd tour-level title that moved him to within seven of Jimmy Connors’ record.It was also the 19th tour-level title on grass for the 37-year-old, who will be among the top contenders at Wimbledon as he looks to increase his Grand Slam haul of 20 trophies.”It’s unbelievable. I never thought when I first played here that I would win 10 titles,” Federer said.After being dragged to three sets in two of his first three rounds in Germany, Federer looked set for another tough fight when world number 33 Goffin earned three consecutive break points at 2-2 in the opening set.However, Goffin failed to capitalise on those chances as his opponent took the set to a tiebreak where he switched gears to take the early lead in the contest.Federer broke quickly in the second set and did not allow Goffin back into the match, becoming become the oldest tour-level champion since a 43-year-old Ken Rosewall prevailed in Hong Kong in 1977.Wimbledon begins on July 1 with Federer seeking a ninth title at the tournament.last_img read more

The Cleveland Cavaliers acquired forward Antawn Jamsion from the Washington Wizards as part of a three-team deal that sends center Zydrunas Ilgauskas and a first-round draft pick to Washington. The Los Angeles Clippers, the third team in the trade, send point guard Sebastian Telfair to Cleveland and forward Al Thornton to Washington. Forward Drew Gooden, traded to the Wizards last weekend, moves on to the Clippers. The Cavs were in discussions about a deal involving Phoenix’s Amar’e Stoudemire earlier in the day, but those talks fell through and the team quickly turned its attention to Washington’s 33-year-old forward. Under NBA rule, there can be no discussion of buying out a player involved in a trade before the deal is complete. However, it has widely been speculated that Ilgauskas would be bought out by his new team and would return to the Cavs after the league’s mandatory 30-day grace period. Jamison is averaging 20.8 points and 8.8 rebounds per game.After three months of hibernation, Tiger Woods will speak to the public Friday.

first_imgOAKLAND, Calif. — Wes Matthews had a pretty good seat for Portland’s 10th straight win. It just happened to be in the Trail Blazers’ locker room.One of three players ejected in the third quarter following a scuffle with Golden State, Matthews spent the final 15 minutes watching the game on TV with teammate Mo Williams after both players were tossed.The two players saw yet another dramatic comeback by one of the biggest surprise teams in the Western Conference.LaMarcus Aldridge had 30 points and 21 rebounds and the Trail Blazers beat the Warriors 113-101 on Saturday.“That inspired us,” said Matthews of the altercation that resulted in six technical fouls in addition to the ejections. “We got better from it, we got stronger from it. Mo and I were continuing to cheer.

Matthews had 23 points while Bay Area native Damian Lillard added 20 points and nine assists for the Blazers.“We rode LaMarcus in the second half,” Portland coach Terry Stotts said. “He took it inside, got to the free throw line, made his free throws, offensive rebounds. He did it all and we rode him.”last_img read more
