by Mark Archibald 6 years ago
Aloha- I'm doing a multicam edit with a client, and would ideally like to arrange the shots in the viewer by camera number. But they seem to come up more or less random, even if they are named in alph

I think you can command click and drag them around right in the viewer.

Set the video codec to H.264, change the data rate to 2500 and you can keep it at 1280x720.
using a line cut
by Steven Austin 6 years ago
Hi, I've been asked to cut a live show. This is my first time for that type of job. (My experience is single camera features, docs. etc. ) I know it will involve multiclipping at least four cameras. T
Re: using a line cut
by Spencer Averick 6 years ago
Yes maybe put your multiclip on V2, and the line cut on V1. That way you can be cutting your multiclip and muting it on and off to check which angle the director selected. Or lower the opacity so you
Exporting long H.264 sequences from FCP7, any tips?
by Andy Jarvis 6 years ago
Hello. I have exercise videos which are 45-minutes long ready for exporting in a FCP7 HD project (ProResLT 1920x1080 25fps). They will be used just for the web. I am aware that they will need to be he
Re: Exporting long H.264 sequences from FCP7, any tips?
by Spencer Averick 6 years ago
Andy, you're probably exporting at 5,000 Mbps, not Kbps. 1Mbps = 1000 Kbps. Export a 45-min ProRes Lt movie from Final Cut Pro with "Export as QuickTime Movie". This is a huge file. Bring that QuickTi
Having to render after importing from Compressor4
by Edwin Street 6 years ago
Hello, I convert my DSLR H.264 file to ProRes4444 in Compressor4 and drop it into my timeline in FCP7. It asks me to match the sequence settings with the clip settings and I click Yes. But I have to r

It's just the one extra "layer". You can't ever see it because it's invisible, you can only see it in action. If I have a ProRes HQ sequence in FCP of a guy being interviewed, and a graphics guy creat
transcoding to apple prores422 problem
by raju bhai 6 years ago
Hi, I edited most of my video that was shot on Canon 5d without first transcoding the clips. So halfway through the edit, I decided to transcode the clips to apple prores 422. Then I changed the seque

Very strange. I've definitely had this happen before when I copy and paste a 2997 sequence in a 2398, but if your frame rate has been consistent throughout I really don't know!

When you export from FCP you are just exporting as is without compression, no quality loss. When you export from streamclip you are compressing into a smaller file, with quality loss. Check your data
Render Issue
by Harrison Gruber 6 years ago
I have edited a number of videos with the same setting: It's a three camera setup so I have three video tracks (all same settings). The top video (camera C) in the timeline (visible in the canvas here
Re: Render Issue
by Spencer Averick 6 years ago
If your ProRes footage matches exactly with your sequence settings and you still need to render, then either it's a bug of some kind, something wrong inherently with that camera footage, or you accide
Workflow for long distance edits?

Hi, I am editing a documentary here at my home in chicago, while my director lives in LA. I was wondering if you knew any good ways to work with her on the project. Are there any good screen sharing s

Standing desk report: two weeks in

A lot of editors have complained, on this forum and others, about back pain. After hearing from a couple of people who tried standing instead of sitting, I've finally made the switch, and so far, so g

I'm curious what the experiences have been with folks working on long-form jobs like documentaries and movies. More than 60 minutes in length and 20 hours of footage. What have the experiences been -
Re: FCP X and long form
by Spencer Averick 6 years ago
I'm looking forward to hearing about a feature length workflow in X, maybe sort of like we did with Walter Murch on Cold Mountain, although I think it's realistically a 10.2 or 3 update. In March I'm
