MacVoices #1397: Wally Cherwinski Delivers a Case Study in Multi-Camera Video Shooting and Editing

Videographer and self-described Apple enthusiast  Wally Cherwinski  is known by many in the Mac community for his outstanding music videos of the annual Cirque du Mac party at Macworld/iWorld. Wally uses the most recent Cirque videos as a basis to deliver a case study in multi-camera video shooting and multi-clip video editing. Such projects sound intimidating, but Wally makes it easy to decide where your camera positions should be, how to organize and edit the audio and video, export your video to share, and more. Using examples from the event helps illustrate the process, so you can see it from start to finish, and enjoy the finished product whether you were there or not.

This edition of MacVoices is sponsored by Smile, the makers of the brand new PDFpen 6 and PDFpenPro 6, as  PDFpen for iPad  and PDFpen for iPhone.
