Multicam A Different Way
I have a bunch of clips, from multiple cameras.
It’s a mixture of camera, phone, etc…
There is no timecode (some don’t even timestamp the filename and/or metadata).
Some might not even have audio.
This is my Vegas workflow (let me know if I can do similar things, in Premiere)…
Create a timeline
Set the timeline’s time to whatever my first known time is (19:02:56 for 7:02:56 PM)
Create tracks for the different sources
Place the files that I do know time for (filename, EXIF, etc…) on their appropriate tracks and positions
Place everything else, kind of, where I think they should be
Play the timeline and make positional adjustments, as needed (match audio, composite the tracks, etc…)
Once everything is matched up, I select the video tracks and create a multicam track
From tutorials and such, it doesn’t seem like Premiere allows that.
Everything I’ve seen requires each source to be its own timeline and then create a multicam timeline from those timelines.
While that has advantages with effects and such, it’s nigh impossible to match up clip placements.
Is there some way to do what I need to, in Premiere?
I’d like to learn it, but this is a significant hurdle (at least, for me).
