Best way of filming and multicam editing a rc car race
I want to film a rc race, like how you see it in tv like F1 race. So my idea is to do like this:
Place as many fixed cameras as possible around the track. Then I will switch from camera to camera when editing, to follow the cars around the track. The challenge is to keep track of using the right pass-by from each camera so that I don’t mess up by clipping using the wrong clips.
My idea to fix that is like this: Use a signal horn to sync videos. Then I can place each camera clip in its own track in the editor in hit film and move the clips on the timeline until the horn signal is perfect synced.
When clipping the final video can I somehow in hitfilm in an easy way choose track 1 from this time to this time, then track 2 next couple of seconds , then track 3 next couple of seconds and so on.
Is that the easiest way to make the movie, or is there a better technique?
