Hi I'm Greg. I'm a South African Canadian Travel Videographer aka Global Citizen. I first got into video filming with a sharp camcorder in high school making my own short films and tennis video and editing on a VHS.  In 2011 in Simon Fraser University (Vancouver Canada) I rediscovered my love for video while filming an earthquake hiphop safety video for a Media Course. 

After I graduated from Simon Fraser University (BA Communications) in Vancouver Canada I went on to pursue a successful IT career working 13 years as an IT manager. I went onto to complete my MBA in Technology Management SFU and found my Entrepreneurial inspiration to start my own travel video business in 2011 during the DSLR video revolution. I sold my downtown Vancouver Apartment, bought an iMac, a Can... See full profile

1. Massage Project Huahin intro : What's up, everyone? It's Greg Hung here. I mean, watching Thailand. I have just wrapped up a four day video suit video shoot for a sauce training video. The video. She was pretty intense. We had two cameras going and out of this video editing Siri's edited in Adobe Premiere 2019 . I think we're gonna learn a lot a big thank you to Terry, the clients whose letting me use some of the lessons from editing this video project for him for training purposes. You're gonna get a lot out of this. I've just started editing this video, and I can already tell there's gonna be some new lessons here that I can share with U. S. Oh, just some background here. The set up for this video we did for continuous full days with two cameras. Now the first camera was shot on my Panasonic GH five connected to a wireless live mike. So this was our primary video an audience for sitting on a tripod and shot in full HD, a very good stable set up for shooting video. Now the second camera is shot in the Canon SLR, so this is a little bit older set up. I had to install Magic Lantern to allow to overcome recording limitations of 12 minutes and also give me additional video features to help me focus in while actually handheld recording. So the second camera, the SLR, is connected to a road shotgun microphone, which is a second audio source. And there's no built in stabilization in the bond in lands off the handheld. Shoot it. And so you're gonna learn a lot of things. I've just started video editing this project. Aiken Ready? Tell there's a lot that can be learned here. So thank you, Terry, for the clients who is letting me share this material, you're gonna learn multi cam video editing. You're gonna learn a lot off, um, warp stabilisation because I have to stabilize a lot of these clips. Not one, but multiple clips in sometimes 20 minute or longer lessons. So there's gonna be some advanced stuff here, so stay tuned, and we're gonna dive into these lessons in a second 2. Massage Project Huahin setting up the multi cam : okay, We're gonna go ahead and go through setting up a multi cam project. Now, to do that, we need to have video clips from two different cameras. So we've got have been here, and we have clips from our main camera which begin with P R g e over to the left and M V eyes from camera to. So to get started, you can just highlight all of these. We can, right click, and we can select create multi cameras for sequence. Now, Window's gonna pop up and we can go ahead and name it. So I'm gonna go ahead and name Batch Day two batch to inside part one. I want to make sure that audio is check that's gonna allows to help secret NYSE. And I'm gonna check move source clips to process Clip's been. So that's just to let me know that these clips have been processed into the multi camera sequence hit. Okay, now it's going to go through these clips and do its magic and hopefully create me one multi camera sequence which check and then go ahead and create a new sequence in the timeline. And then we can start off our multi cam video edit with this massage endorse, and that's how we can set it up. So this is gonna take a while. It's gonna process the audio. So when we rejoin, we're gonna be looking a little bit further into editing this video endorse. 3. Massage Project Huahin Editing the multi cam project : Hi. In this video, we're gonna look at creating a brand new multi cam project. Uh, I've covered this before, but I'll just cover it again. Uh, this multi count project has two audio sources, one from primary camera and one from the secondary. And we've imported are video clips from camera one camera to We've already gone ahead and created our multi cam project, which you can see over here. And we've set up the multi cam project to move the clips that are being used into process clips. So we have two clips from camera two, beginning with M V I, um And then our primary camera starts or prg. So I've gone ahead, and I created a new sequence from the multi cam clip. So that's right over here. And when I recommend doing is scrubbing through the clips, I could just double click on it and this quickly scrubbed through it in the monitor. So care just looking for anything unusual that pops outs like lighting changes. Or maybe there was a stop to recording. So give you a preview ahead. What to expect? Okay. Okay. Everything looks pretty good. So we have our product in the timeline, and the first thing I want to do is determine which, ah, what the premier has selected as, uh, number one. So what I mean by that is that once we actually start editing the multi cam project, we use one and two keys for two camera angles to switch. So I made a mark here using em because I've already previewed this just to let myself know when both cameras pop up. So you see a the beginning. There was only one camera angle. That's because I didn't turn on the camera. That's also a good sign that both cameras audio has sink correctly. Welcome. I'm gonna go ahead and just trim beginning of this full deep breath into my hand. Okay. Looks like I didn't catch the beginning. Let's try again. Just connecting with clients free thing. Okay, so I'm gonna start right after he puts that cut them right over here. And this is the beginning of her projects. I'm just gonna move the entire thing over. And now, after the figure out, which is the primary audio source, you don't want them doing a short and shallow breath in the top of the chest. that's more like a panting breath. Sounds more like it. Relax. Breakfast. I helped to process our attention. Panicked, shorter, shallow breath. So I figured out just by the quality of the sound that a one is our main audio track. And this time Dobie has selected my Panis Ainge age five, which is the prg falls as the first angle on the canon SLR MB I as number two but in the previous sequences did the opposite. All right, so what I'm gonna do is no. I'm going to right click and select unlinked on the clips because I want to start adding these individually. So what I want to do is no exactly sure we have when we have three on your trucks. But I wanted this able all the other audio tracks just so we have the main audio and the mean, uh, video stream. And now what we're gonna be doing is just playing through our video lesson here and just switching back and forth between camera angle one and angle to every 15 20 seconds or so. But at the same time, I'm listening to the audio from the video. And if hey is talking about something relevant that requires a close up. I'm probably gonna switch to camera Angle to another way we can use multi camera angles is to cover up things. So you may see me walking across the screen because I was hand holding one of the cameras camera, too. And Camera one is sitting on the tripods. So if you see me walking across the screen off angle one man, it would switch to angle to or if Camera two I was shaking a bit too much while I was making an adjustment to the exposure, and I didn't want to make that so obvious. Then it would switch to Angle one, which is more or less fixed. So those are ways you can use, uh, different camera angles to cover up each other. So sort of acts in a way like B roll. All right, so let's go ahead and make some cuts years. Basically, we're pressing on the one and two keys on the keyboard just to switch camera angle. So let's press the space bar and let's give it a go. And again, if you don't see this screen here, you need to enable it to compress the plus key and add the multi camera view. Okay, let's let's go. Connecting with their clients to breathing full deep breath into my hand. You want to make sure your client is breathing into the lower lungs? Is there a switch Cameron will raise up? The sides will expand outwards. You don't want them doing a short and shallow breath in the top of the chest. That's more like a panting breath. It sounds more like a It is a bit of shaking, an angle to, as I can see in the left window, blacks going to keep it on help to probably one for as long as I can. During a short, shallow you realize which you're drawing the breath deep into the bottom of the lungs, building your entire lung cavity. Okay, let's stop right there because may take a while, and I think you get the idea here. So just to recap our multi camera project we created using clips from Camera one camera, too, and we're using three clips that are in the process clips folder. We scrub them by a previous they might had just to see if there's anything weird before we actually start editing and we set up our multi can review we disabled for. We disabled the audio trucks that are not being used, but we're keeping them in the timeline in case we need backup audio and ah, yeah, we've gone ahead and switch camera angles every 15 to 20 seconds, or when it's needed to cover up something using the one and two keys. So, uh, that's how you can go ahead and start editing your multi camera angle project. 4. Massage Project Huahin multicam audio coverup : they're So we have continued on our multi camera that we've been switching between camera angle one and two and even three. Um, looks like Adobe Premiere has created an angle 34 the second clip coming from my canon SLR And so I've just been all turning from 1 to 3. But then something interesting came up and this is really life videography here. What happened? Waas the battery pack on this teachers microphone it gave out. So what happens over here at 29 22 is that this audio track here just gave out. So what I've done is I've made an incision using the blade full just to cut here, and I've this Abel's the audio truck so you can see enable is lit up there because I've disabled it. And I figured out why there's three audio tracks So the second audio track is coming from FBI. Nine Faith 584 and 958583 eso. What happens here is the play and then order truck switches to the backup audio coming from the SLR road. But then something else happens If we move the video on right up until around this point just about 29 seconds. Here we lose the audio and I was wondering what happened. And then I actually open up the very loss video clip from our SLR. And I realized that, you know, when this and when Blank and we were stuck with just one camera angle. That meant that we had just a video clip from our main camera, the GH five. And there wasn't any other video clips from R B roll camera. So what I think I have to do is look for the next clip. Most likely is gonna be 9586 or 9587 and then included in the timeline. And then I'll just continue on into the projection. Use the back of audio. Very essential because we don't have any audio from RG H five at this point because the battery gave out on his microphone going into the ah receiver, wireless live Mike. So it's essential that I find this club over there. So, uh, when we come back, ah, we'll see if I can find it. I'm pretty confident that it's that's what it is because we've lost our ah, other camera angle and I just need Teoh sync it up, or I'll manually place that clip in the timeline 5. Massage Project Huahin Salvaging audio and applying stabilizer to multiple clips : Okay, so I've gone ahead and fixed what I believe is the issue. So when we last left off, we lost completely lost the camera angle from our canon SLR. So I went had Ah, let me just find the right. Been here. So we are on batch to So I went ahead and I figured out the last clip from camera to was 9585 And how did it do that? Actually, just play this back And I went back into the Ben and I saw this video clip was not included , for whatever reason. And so instead of just sinking it, I just chose to manually place this clip at the right point where we lose our camera angle , which is somewhere around the 32nd mark. Right? There was a bit of a delay, so at that points, that's when I placed this clip over from the second camera, as well as getting the audio from it into all your track three. I've disabled the audio for audio track one because there's no audio coming from it anymore . So this clip is very crucial because it's providing, uh, B roll close ups and is also providing her backup audio for the rest of the project. And that's how we've solis this situation. Not very pretty, but it works. So let's just play back and see how it works. And after that, then I'm going to go ahead and just including adjustment layer. Just supply a little bit of saturation to the entire project, and then we'll export this baby. So pay attention to this area and the right hand side. Give us a reward. Always come back there. Okay, so we lost a camera anger. But it was a seam, seamless transition. And for the viewer watching, they wouldn't be able to tell what just happened. And you see some gaps here. So I mean, made those cuts just to do a manual camera angle changed because our camera one angle was beneath it because it's at a lower video track layer. So just wait for it. It's going to switch to camera one right now. Just take a check, Mr. Tell late. Okay. Eso I mentioned the adjustment layer and one other thing that we need to do that's pretty important is we need to highlight all the clips from the second camera because we need to apply the warp stabilizer effect. So just to make that easy, we're gonna full screen. And ah, I have two highlights. Not only these, but everything that says M C three and M C. Two because M. C three is our third camera angle. So I just focused on M. C three. Just keep things simple, and then I'll do EMC two after. So what I'm doing is applying warp stabilizer in batch. So I'm holding down shifts and I'm clicking. That's a long clip. There. Now I can zoom in. If you can't see, just press the plus. There's another one zooming in further and then just keep moving along. Okay, there we see an emcee, too. Okay, There's no sea to there's one there, Another one. Okay, we're almost there. And this is to stabilize these clips, and this will take some time. Just focus and try to get every M c to M. C. Three clips. Okay, two more on and I think we're at the beginning. Last one. Okay, Now we're gonna press till the and with all our EMC to emcee three clips highlighted and actually see some that are not okay. we're going to move over to the effects and I'm going to select warp stabilizer and double click. We'll see all these red spots here. So that's the warp stabilizer running against all those clips. So this is going to take a while, uh, and you want to let it run through and stabilize all these clips? And then when this finishes, the last step is I can apply. Just Moreira put some saturation, which I've covered before in another lessons are nothing new. And then we're gonna export this video. So I think we've covered a lot here. We learned how to ah, solid our audio from our backup camera. We learned how to manually place in a clip from the second camera, which the most cam, uh, function then do. And now we've applied the warp stabilizer to multiple second camera clips on We're letting it run 6. Massage Project Huahin applying effects to multiple clips in the timeline : okay, In this lesson, we're gonna look at how we can make adjustments to in underlying layer in a multi cam club . The first let me just show you some essential things for setting up the most camp project and what she go through, creating a brand new multi cam project because I already have. He's created, but you need to make sure you've got the multi cam view in your source monitor. If you don't have that, you can click on the plus button and you'll search for this icon here, which is multi cam multi cam. View eso after you create the multi cam sequence and your dragons a timeline, you're going to see, uh, to both camera angles. So as we're video editing and we're gonna press one or two toe alternate camera angles, Uh, but okay, let's get down to how do we make adjustments to the underlying clip? So, in this project here, uh, if we wanted to make exposure adjustments, Aiken just double click and highlight the clip. This one is ends in 108 dot mp four. Let's give it a while to load, and the client is saying that the portion where the people are is actually was over here. It's actually but dark, and the back has washed out. Now, there's not too much Aiken change now because it was so bright. Uh, but over here, just going to move this over. You can see that I've want up the highlights, and I've bumped up the shadows just to lighten this area up a little bit. So when I make the change to this clip of the file level, it applies to the entire project in a multi camera sequence. So that's one way you can, uh, just kill multiple birds with one stone. No, I also want to show you how we can stabilize multiple clips in this project. Okay, so let's just clear these marks over here. And, uh, but this one a get over until the sequence look. Okay, so we are in the sequence. I'm just gonna press still there to expand it. Okay, so you can see here at this level once we got a full view of the timeline that we see in brackets here, M c one really m c. One. And if I zoom in, you should be able to see EMC two as well. So M C two corresponds with camera, too, when you look at the multi cam view window, so it's a little confusing because Camera one is actually are mere lis camera and Camera two is the B roll camera. But in this most cam project, I guess Adobe Premiere picked decided to pick came to as camera one. So for purposes off this lesson, multi camera editing. But one key corresponds to this window, which is our bureau camera, and the The two key corresponds to this window, which is our main camera. So if we want to apply stabilization to multiple clips, where we need to do is we need to highlight those clips. So just put on the pointer key and you highlight one and press shift, hold down shift and then click so all the ones will see. One are now, uh, coming from this camera, and because it's handhold, it's a little bit shaky. So what do I do? I go over to effects and a double click on warp stabilizer, and I can go over to the effect controls that says multiple clips are highlighted. But if I click just one, I can see this has warp stabilizer already applied. We can make this window, but bigger. And if I highlight this window, we can also see that it has warp stabilizer applied. So, uh, yeah, that's how you can apply effects to multiple clips in the timeline. That's also how you can make out in the timeline on a multi camera project. Which one is camera one and which one is camera two? Remember, you can expand the timeline by pressing the tilde. And, uh, hopefully that helps you during a multi camera video. Edits. So now it's time for me now that the stabilisation has applied to export these videos so the clients can take a look at it. 7. Massage Project Huahin export media presets and name overlays : Okay, Welcome back. This lesson we're going to export our video on, and we're gonna learn how a workflow that we can give to a client. So when I'm in the draft or revision phase with the client, you want to give them a watermark because you also want to protect yourself if you're still waiting for payment. But you also want Teoh have a clear description off what exactly? This is So I have a plate. I've apply some stabilization and already to give this with no watermark. So the watermark is this name overlay here that's going to put this text overlay this text on top of it. Okay, video and audio. Now, I've set up my video with the video settings for the project. For example, maximum render quality and ah rendered maximum depth. And I wanted to have a preset that sets the quality at ah, full 10 80 p for YouTube. So 10. 80 p full HD once he set those up. I don't wanna be finding those all the time so you can save these at a preset, so you can just recall it. So I set Terry massage to be that once I've set my file name. So it's gonna fetch all the settings that I've set it up for. The good copy. And all you gotta do is this, Like you and Adobe Encoder is going to display this file, which we can then run now, also want to create another copy, uh, with the watermark. So I've created another precept for that that checks that overlay box that I showed you. So once this is done exporting to adobe encoder, I'm going to select control em to export my media. So I get that exports window come up again, and I'm just going to change the preset to my Dr setting. Okay, so we'll cover that once the window pops up. Okay, there we go. So we are creating the draft now, so I'm going to name this stabilized draft. But now I confined my presets, called Terry dropped so you can see we've got our overly there. So this is in the effects, the name overlay. So I just put a prefix called draft that takes thesaurus file name and positions it at the top center. Okay, that's good. I can push it over to the adobe in quarter view And then So my workflow going forward, I'm going to create a version that has the text overlay, and I'm gonna create a good copy so that as we go on, I've got two copies, one to show the clients and then the good copy. Of course, if the client comes back and says, Oh, I want revisions, then I'll just just that projects into another fall. But if they're okay with it, I'm just gonna keep the good copy without the text draft, so I don't need to recreate it again. 8. Massage Project Huahin Summary for Huahin Day 2 : Everyone is great here again. And I finished the day to a massage. Footage tick about five days off almost full time work. So I disc me a summary off the lessons learned to complete this work flow, I think will be useful for people that air doing multi camera angles that have to do long edits for long video shoot. So let's get started. My first tip is to establish a workflow. Um, I had a lot of footage between two cameras over the course of an entire day. So a lot of folders off footage. So the first tip I have is to, um, organized that in on your computer or your external hard drive. But in a DUI premier, make use of bins to organize all, uh, the different periods, all of your shoot. So I've I've divided them up into batches. Ah, At the beginning, I used, um, video clips from camera one and camera, too from, you know, like one lesson one or two lessons. Ah, I also use the process clips holder. When you create a multi cam clip, you have the option to tell Dobie to store the process clips in a process folder, And that was very useful because, ah, some of the clubs don't always match up. And the process clips help me find the orphan clips so that I could use those war from clips in the next batch in the multi cam clips, so that where I didn't miss any lessons. So used bins and process folders in multi camera, uh, projects establish a workflow for your lessons that will help you go through the added law . Faster took me, um, I think several batches to get into the workflow. And so here's here was my workflow. I would import the clips into the batch. I would then create the multi cam clip and, ah, you know, set set the process folders to process those clips. Once the clips were in the timeline like this, then I would figure out which a one or a two was the primary live mike. Then it would disable the secondary audio, but I would keep in there for backup purposes, and then I would reduce the noise, reply the reduced noise effect, and then I would turn on my multi camera angle view and then alternate between the different angles and I would try to display the appropriate camera based on what the teacher was talking about or if there was camera shake. I would alternate the cameras once I was done, um, alternating the camera clips. Then he would expanding timeline, and then that would help me find the camera angle clips for camera, too. When I say Camera two, I mean the B roll camera that will allow them to easily find in the timeline and highlight multiple clips that needed to be stabilized. So by holding down shift So that was a big time saver. And then it would, um, apply the warp stabilizer stabilizer. And because that would take a long time, I would actually take a break. It would take hours for Adobe to process the stabilization. And then lastly, I would send, uh, Actually, before I do do that, I would add an adjustment layer, just apply saturation to the entire project. And then I would say the project send it over to the encoder to export and render. Um, actually, before I would do that in the export window, I noticed that after stabilization, there were some black borders. If the stabilization didn't preserve scale so I just quickly do a quick scrub before I sent it off to the encoder and ah, then it would just select my render presets without a watermark over it or what not and then send it to the encoder and then let it do its thing. And then it would just repeat that for each batch. So once I got my workflow going, things were a lot faster now something that you may or may not come across for. Ah, large video at it. This is a particularly large, unusually large video project that required hundreds of gigabytes, um, to create. Normally, I just deal with shorter video shoots, um, and newer laptops, computers these days, air coming with smaller hard drives. Um, MacBook pros come off hard drives that their smallest 256 gigabytes mind comes with 500 gigabytes. Solves state hard drive. So actually ran out of space, and it was considering if I should Barton External access D um, and the place I mean, the price was just a bit on the higher end, so I decided to wait. So just to finish off the batch, I wanted to finish day, too. often least. And, um, I wanted to enjoy myself for a few days. I mean I mean, why in Thailand? So what I did, I just powered through it. I used my external USB three hard drive. It wasn't the fastest, but allow me to get through the batch. And hopefully the client can finalize some of these videos for day two. Second, free up some space on my primary SST on the laptop because that's my working storage. But it did get me thinking about investing into a external SST hard drive. Let me. It may be another 500 gigabyte. Just were additional working storage for video at it. So something you may want to think about if you have one of the newer laptops with a USB C connection, which is faster than USB three. So hope you found this, um Adobe premiere upgrade tutorial Useful. Um, I always think every client project gives you an opportunity to learn something new, and ah did for this project. So hopefully you could take away some additional tips. Um, for me, it was dealing with, you know, just to scale this project divide and conquer organization Yusof Warp Stabilization for multiple clips. And also one thing I will mention is the use of backup audio because there was some hissing , um, cause I think by my shock a microphone when I got close to the live mike and so I had to do things like I had to improvise. I, too sometimes, uh, disabled the portion if you see here, so a ones air primary audio, but I to dis abled when there was hissing. And then it would enable the backup audio. But the backup audio didn't have high enough recording level, so I to boost the gain by, you know, like four decibels to make it sound similar. Eso there was no drop off to use on your transition. Just smooth it in and out. And I also experimented with using um, different effects for reducing the hiss. There's not a lot of information online because I think it was for the previous versions, but I found there's some other effects you can use. Teoh reduce interference for audio, for example, the automatic click remover, um experimented with and even after applying noise reduction and on right click remover, going to the effect controls and getting but deeper into the actual settings off. That effect is, ah, something I played around with for this project. Um, so I think every projects opportunity to learn a bit more. And, uh, yeah, thanks for watching and hope you're getting along out of this. Talk to later. Bye.
