    Home Recording Video - iMovie w/2 cameras

    Sign in to disable this ad
    In the spirit of home recording, this is something I recorded yesterday afternoon and then used iMovie this morning to put together. 2 cameras, one straight-through take of the song with me playing/singing (2 cameras), as it were, and then a take each of the solos (1 camera). All the audio was recorded on my Mac Mini and mixed down there.

    Then, I put the main video from both cameras into iMovie, lined them up using their audio tracks, and then sync'd the mixed audio to it, zeroing the videos' audio tracks. Next I added the solo videos and lined those up using their audio. Final, tedious steps were getting the cuts/transitions in place while keeping the alignments - that took a couple tries, so I think I'll revert back to Final Cut Pro and create multi-cam videos from the start and play with the cuts there, though I'm not sure it will work with the short solos in the main audio (main reason I decided to try iMovie).

    Anyway, mistakes here and there, but for a proof of concept by an old goat, I'm Ok with it...

    Thanks for the looks and comments folks. I just got such a kick out of that song I had to try. Not Tommy Emmanuel (duh), but I can get some friends to play along with this version! (The fiddler likes it better without the capo )
