Tutorial: Multicamera Editing in Adobe Premiere Pro CS6

Adobe Premiere Pro Instructor extraordinaire Luisa Winters explains how to use the new and enhanced Multi-Camera Monitor for quick and efficient multicam edits in Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 in this video and text tutorial.

Syncing Your Clips in the Multi-Camera Source Sequence Panel

Now that all of your clips have In points that are in agreement with each other, you can go back to List view. Next, select all of your clips, right-click, and choose Create Multi-Camera Source Sequence, as shown in Figure 5 (below)

The Create Multi-Camera Source Sequence panel opens (Figure 6, below). In this panel, tell Premiere Pro to use the In points to synchronize. Here you can also rename your clips. I named mine Free Running -- Multicam Source.

You can now double-click this clip to see it in the Source panel. And, as you can see in Figure 7 (below), it's showing me all seven cameras at once.

Creating a New Sequence for the Multicam Clip

You can now create a new sequence for your multicam clip by right-clicking the clip in the Project Panel and selecting New Sequence from Clip (Figure 8, below) from the pop-up menu that appears. This creates a sequence that will contain the nested multicam sequence in it.
