What's the best way to get lip sinc footage from a musician for editing a music video that I can get the video track lined up with the audio and not have to keep cutting individual 3-5 sec shots? Was thinking of 2 methods, but maybe there's a better way.
1- have the musician play out 10 full tracks and set-up each track w a lens, lighting, background, etc. and take footage without cutting for the whole song. Then drop each track into the timeline at the same start point and pull shots from each of the 10 tracks so each shot is already in sinc
2- set-up each shot individually and record approx location of the shot for general audio sinc and final sinc by aligning by hand w audio.
Sorry if this is not a question for the General forum but couldn't find the editing forum I thought used to be here
