Softron's Multicam Logger allows you to log all of the different angles (or inputs) used in a live multi-camera production. It records which input the producer has selected on a vision mixer and when. Multicam Logger thus creates a multicam clip for compatible editing applications using the logs and the files recorded by any type of video recorder. The purpose is to use the resulting media to edit a final version of the production which could include necessary corrections. The compatible editing applications are Adobe Premiere Pro CS6, Final Cut Pro X, and Final Cut Pro 7.

Seamless Integration with ATEM Production Switchers
Multicam Logger can integrate with most production switchers through GPI. With the Blackmagic Design ATEM Production Switcher Line it can connect through Ethernet. The inputs on the ATEM Production Switcher appear immediately on the Multicam Logger screen and connect through a simple Network Connection, no need for complicated cabling and you can use any of the ATEM Production Switcher line.
Support for Any Production Switcher with GPI
If you do not have an ATEM Switcher, you can also connect to your favorite switcher using a standard GPI/tally interface. To connect to a Production Switcher using GPI, all you need to do is connect the device to Softron's GPICommander2 (sold separately).
Send Your Multicam to Your Editing Software
Once the live session has ended, you can select the file in the Finder that you want to associate with the input and drop it onto the named input. You can then simply click on Send Multicam to send the multicam to Premiere CS6, Final Cut Pro X, and Final Cut Pro 7. All of the changes will then appear in your editing solution and are ready to be modified. You can then work as he would with any standard multicam clip to change which angle is chosen and when, as well as to modify the edit points, add effects, etc.
Record Your Camera Streams with Any Type of Recorder
Multicam Logger does not record any video and is hardware agnostic. What Multicam Logger does is log the angles that the director has selected on his vision mixer when producing a live show. To get to the multicam clips afterwards, it is necessary that you have the capability to record each of the cameras on set and ideally the program output as well. To record each camera feed, you can select whatever solution is appropriate. You should just check that the recorded file type and codec are supported by Multicam Logger.
Link to One or Multiple Clips Per Angle
After the live production, to create your multicam clip, simply drag and drop each recorded file to each camera angle in Multicam Logger. For example, let's say that during your live show you recorded the Camera 1 feed using MovieRecorder and this created a video file named Simply drag that file and drop it on the Camera 1 line in Multicam Logger. This file will now be associated with that angle, provided the recorded file type and codec are supported by Multicam Logger.
Add Markers and To-Dos to Your Project
You can also simply add Markers and To-Dos that will then be added to your project sequence, so you can log all the important moments or the moments that need to be reworked.
