Edit More Than One Video at a Time


javaman

Question

I have used two cameras to record an event. Both videos have been captured and files labeled. Is there a way to work with both video clips (files) simultaneously on Edit Video instead of one at a time? It would make cutting and pasting the scenes I want on the final DVD much easier.

 

Thanks,

J

You can load both clips in Videowave (if format is supported by VW) but editing can be done on one clip at a a time. You can switch back and forth between the clips though.

I appreciate knowing this, but you fail to tell me how to make this happen. Each time I load the two clips, they appear one after the other. Is there a way to have them appear one "on top" of the other so I can "merge" them while I work on them. I accept that I can only edit one at a time, but editing when one appears after the other is cumbersome and very time consuming.

 

Thanks,

put one video on the main track and the second video on one of the internal video tracks.

No, there is no way to do what you are saying. You can put one video on top of the other as an overlay, but you can only edit the one that was put in first, sort of.

 

What you want to do is to edit those videos separately, and once one is done, output it as a DV-AVI file, then do the same thing to the 2nd one.

 

Now, you can bring both of those into VideoWave, if you want to overlay one, with the other.

 

What I think you want to do is take one segment from one of the cameras and put that clip after/on the clip that was taken at the same time with the other camera and do that throught both videos. That is a very complicated production, but it can be done. It will take a long time to do it, but the outcome will be fantastic. I have done it that way, sort of.
