Step #1

Import your clips in Premiere. For this shoot we were using two C300s and a Zoom F8, all of them being fed timecode from Deity TC-1s.

Step #2

Highlight all of the clips that you would like to sync and right click.

In this Options menu, scroll down and select “Create Multi-Camera Source Sequence.”

Step #3

Make sure “Timecode” is selected as your Synchronize Point.

If you don’t want your clips placed into a new bin after syncing them, uncheck “Move source clips to Processed Clips bin.”

Step #4

Back in your media browser, right click the new sequence and select “Open In Timeline.”
