Multicam Logger allows a user to log all of the different angles (or inputs) used in a live multi-camera production. It records which input the director has selected on his video mixer and when. Multicam Logger thus creates a multicam clip for Final Cut Pro X, Final Cut Pro 7 and Adobe Premiere Pro using the logs and the files recorded by any type of video recorder. The purpose is to use the resulting media to edit a final version of the production which could include necessary corrections.
Selecting an on your production switcher automatically selects it on Multicam Logger. The clean and easy to use interface indicates which item is currently selected as Program and which is selected as Preview.
By moving from camera to camera or from one device to another device, Multicam Logger notes the timecode for the start and the end of the selection. It also displays the duration and which input has been used.
Of course, our bias is to use Softron’s MovieRecorder for all recording. Other recording devices can include the AJA KiPro or Blackmagic Design Hyperdeck, even cameras with built-in memory can be used.
After the Live production, to create your multicam clip, you simply drag and drop each recorded file(s) to each camera angle in Multicam Logger. For example, during your live show you recorded the Camera 1 feed using MovieRecorder which created a video file named MyLiveShow (Camera 1).mov. Simply drag that file and drop it on the Camera 1 line in Multicam Logger. This file will now be associated with that angle, provided the recorded file type and codec are supported by Multicam Logger.
