Logging Different Combinations of Cameras and Events
Lumberjack is very flexible:
Lumberjack System works without, or with, Timecode. It is primarily designed to work with Universal Time - UTC - but can use Timecode.
Lumberjack System can log in real time :
One approach to complex events is to have multiple people logging the same Event from different locations or perspectives. For example one logger focuses on Activities and Other Keywords, while another sets Favorites for the interview answers.
Each person logging signs in and selects the same Event.
Lumberjack will log all entries and merge them into a single output for the desktop application.
Create separate Event for each camera being used and assign these Events to different loggers.
Ingest each camera's media to an Event in Final Cut Pro X.
Select that Event and export to Lumberyard for Keyword Mode processing.
You can do Select string-outs from all cameras by sending a Library of already Keyworded Events to Lumberyard in Story Mode.
Another approach to complex events is to set up different Events for the same shoot.
Each Event represents a subset of the full shoot.
For example: on a reality show if multiple teams were competing together you would log each team to a different Event, or if activities were happening in multiple concurrent locations, each location should have its own Event. (While the location field can be used in Smart Collections in Final Cut Pro X, it would probably be easier for the editor if vastly different locations were logged to different Events.)
Select and log the Event set up for the activity or location that is part of the larger event.
