Adobe CS5.5 DVi Workshop: MultiCam Editing

Pete Bauer guides you through a Multi-Cam Editing sequence in Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5
(runs just under 14 min.)

Multi-Cam Editing in Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5 is accomplished in four easy steps:

  • SYNCH clips from as many as four cameras on a SOURCE Sequence.
  • NEST the Source Sequence in a TARGET Sequence.
  • ENABLE multicam editing in the Target Sequence.
  • OPEN the MultiCam editing window.

Pete Bauer of Contrail Media explains the basic procedures for working within the multi-cam editing environment, and then guides you through a sample sequence involving four source video clips as they are mixed into one. A quick review of the process is included at the end of Pete’s tutorial. In less than 15 minutes, this video tutorial covers the essential steps you’ll need to know in order to use the Multi-Cam Editing tools in Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5.

About The Author

As he grew up along the Great Snowy Northern border of Minnesota, Pete Bauer’s innate passion for filmmaking and photography was evident very early. Although life took his professional pursuits in other directions, Pete never lost that passion. Since his retirement from the U.S. Air Force as a flight surgeon, his civilian practice of Aerospace Medicine in the Houston area has afforded him greater time and opportunities to re-ignite that old flame. Starting as a DV Info Net lurker in 2002, Pete quickly became a daily presence on the forum and has been one of the site’s stable of Wranglers and a DVi Contributing Editor since early 2004.
