Synchronization and organization are extremely inportant in a multi camera environment.

- Many professional use a master timecode generator to distribute the same timecode information to each camera and recorder. This will allow each source to recognize the same point in an event via the same timecode.

- You can also lay down a visual or audio cue before or after the event such as a camera flash or audio pop to use as a point of synchronization.

- It is also advantageous to number or place a letter on each camera, from left to right as you stand facing the action you are recording, to signify which angle of the scene the camera was assigned to.

- Either before or after your shoot, label your tapes carefully describing which angle it was assigned to . Final Cut Pro uses angle numbers and letters as part of its organizational strategy.
