FCP X: Add Effects to a Multicam Clip [Video]

Posted on by Sudd

[This is an excerpt from a recent on-line video training: Advanced Color Correction in Final Cut Pro X, which you can download from our store. You can also access all our training when you become a Video Training Library subscriber.]

Multicam clips allow us to edit multiple angles at the same time. This can be a huge time-saver in editing. But, after the editing is done, color grading selected shots within a multicam edit can be time-consuming.

In this short video tutorial, Larry Jordan shows how to apply an effect, or color correction, to a single multicam master clip, then have it instantly apply to ever occurrence of that clip in the edited sequence. This is a very cool trick.
