I am trying to edit a long form video, my set up consists of 3 camera angles.
I record through OBS. I set up my three cameras through a camlink, set up the three shots and hit record on my computer. This saves me the trouble of messing with SD cards and batteries and gives me one nice preview screen with all my angles on my monitor.
The output of this is one file in mp4. This file is 5760x1080 and includes my three camera angles at 1920x1080.
I then enter Premiere, duplicate the video source into three tracks, and change each respective position so that I now have three separate videos of my three angles.
I consider my computer to have pretty decent specs, but this does not run smoothly on my PC. Sometimes it does, and sometimes it takes a while for the video to pause or play.
I tried using multicam for easier editing, and this is not better. Same story, works for a bit then becomes really slow. I rolled back my Premiere to 23.1 because of multicam issues apparently (it would crash every time) but this didn't help.
I tried using proxies. This made it even worse for some reason. I cannot even get it to play smoothly even once on a proxy at Cineform Low Resolution.
Maybe the fact that every "shot" is not really just a 1920x1080 video but is actually a 5760x1080 repositioned could be doing me some damage?
I would just like to know what I'm doing wrong and how to be able to edit normally without crazy lag and pauses and stutters.
