I have a recording of a full musical theatre show with several cameras. However, the only full-length track I have is the audio. The cameras do not have ongoing tracks but separate clips with pauses inbetween. If manually arranged in Premiere, it could look like this mockup:
As there are nine cameras with sometimes a lot of clips (not just four or five), it would be extremely time-consuming to manually synchronize audio and video. However, I did not find a way to synchronize them with the built-in tools:
- Multi-camera mode could work if each camera would have cuts at the same points. However, this is not the case.
- Merging only works for exactly one video clip and audio.
- I also tried to arrange the videos and the audio on a timeline and apply synchronize for each video/audio combination. However, it moves the audio, not the video, therefore it doesn't work either.
Is there any trick to make this work? I need separate tracks per camera because the cameras are very different and need to be color corrected individually.
