How can I capture video from different angles....

by safiullahf / February 2, 2006 5:30 AM PST

I'm using a canon elura 90 DV. My question is, how can I capture video from different angles with live music, without music interruption/cutting in the video. For example, if a dancer/singer is performing, and you capture her from different angles for instance, from back, right or left side, each movements of her etc. without music being lost. I have heard some professionals use two camcorders at a time. But how can they combine the different video clips with music that looks so professinal?

Any help, I appreciaite it.

Post production. Tools like Final Cut Pro make this look easy.

On the PC, Sony Vegas (not the Studio version) or Adobe Premiere Pro (not Elements) allow you to work independently with the video and audio tracks. They allow you to have many video and audio tracks. In the case you described, the audio would come from one of two or more cameras. This track could play in an uninterupted fashion along with its corresponding video track. At points where video from another camera is desired, It would be placed in a track 'above' the base video track. That would alleviate the need to cut the base track. A clip positioned 'above' would be seen in the output unless its opacity were reduced below 100%.

Sony Vegas can support at least 99 such tracks. I'm not sure what the limit in Premiere Pro or in Mac software would be. I also don't know how much of this is supported by the lite versions of Vegas and Premiere Pro.
