Get That Syncing Feeling

Final Cut Pro X gives you powerful options for quickly syncing your audio and video angles. In this tutorial you will learn how to sync clips from different camera sources from iPhones to professional RED cameras that utilize industry-standard timecode.

Make Fast Timing Adjustments

Multicam editing gives you the feel of cutting a live event. In some cases your timing may be on the mark, but in other cases, your timing might be off. We’ll show you some great tools for quickly adjusting your edits so that it looks like you ‘nailed it’ on the first pass.

Cut with Multiple Audio Sources

If your multicam clip has multiple audio components, we’ll show you how to perform a multicam edit using as many audio components as you like, and you’ll learn when it makes sense to detach your audio, giving you even more creative options.

Color Correct Your Angles

Color Correcting a Multicam clip is quick and painless if you know the steps. In this tutorial we show you how to apply corrections to entire angles, not just individual clips saving you a huge amount of time in post.

    Very pleased with what is offered. You learn a lot of techniques within a short period of time. From the video I was able to learn how to sync video without the traditional sync by audio function.
    I also learned how to add different camera angles that were recorded during my shoot after the original video sync was done which is huge!

    Make more advanced specific videos like this; they are worth the money. I would easily be paying hundreds more for the same information.

    Thank you

    I was stuck on two very specific, technical issues with multitrack editing. I looked all over the net to find answers. Nothing I could find even came close to what I needed to find out. So, I finally realized it’d be worth it for me to see if Ripple could help. I bought the course and within 30 minutes, both questions were explained and answered. I’ve purchased a number of Ripple’s courses and I’ve yet to be disappointed.

    The second Ripple tutorial I have purchased, and every bit as good as the first. Clear concise and just what I needed. More important is the personal support offered by the Ripple team. They must gets lots of idiots like me emailling them and, somehow, they are consistently polite and helpful, real personal service. Superb.

    Thanks guys

    This excellent tutorial expanded my superficial knowledge of the subject greatly. It was clerly explained and will help me enhance my multicam projects.

    I already knew something about multicam editing in FCP X, but my knowledge was very very poor. This tutorial helped me a lot. Thanks!

    Having graduated from FCP7 to FCPX 10.2 and now to FCPX 10.3 – all the while using multi-cam editing – I must publicly acknowledge that RippleTraining, Steve, and now Mark, have been amazing in this journey – helping me graduate from 7 to 10.2, and now to 10.3.

    This is about FCP 10.3 in the hands of Mark. I certainly found it to be thorough and, at times, immensely condensed … no switching off the old brain ‘cos you’ll miss something. I found this particularly so in lesson 7 where so much is covered in a very short space. This led into the Bad Jones edit in lesson 8 which covered more. Mark unveils little tricks which I’ve often wondered about and which will make my life so much easier (if only I’d apply them). I kept wondering if the two musicians in lesson 1 to 7 were Mark’s son and Steve’s daughter – captive, cute, willing performers for sure, if they are.

    I’m working through this series of tutorials – and just love the fact that FCP 10.3 will just synchronize footage from different cameras operating at the same time at the same event. My clapper board? I’ll need to archive that, too.

    Thanks Mark, and Steve, and Jill – I just hope you let him buy that new lens – though I doubt he can get any better . . . .

    I am new to MultiCam editing, so this video series has been very useful to my learning efforts. If you use multiple cameras with FCP X, then I suggest you check this out.
