B-ROLL editing question from a beginner.

Hi all! 

I am an artist and I've started filming some

of my classes to post online. I'm new to premiere pro and have grasped the very basics, but my question is about seamlessly editing b-roll into my videos.

 

I have one camera positioned overhead to capture the whole painting and one on the side to capture the details. I'd like to switch back and forth between them pretty frequently, but I can't figure out the easiest way to do that without putting them on top of each other in the sequence, then blinding one clip, then the other, then cutting carefully and wedging it in so it fits perfectly with the audio...It seems like there must be an easier way. 


I hope this makes sense, I'm happy to elaborate further! Thank you!!

Sounds like you already found the solution the way you do it now... and making it faster is not always gonna lead to making it better. But Peru's suggestion sounds like it is made for you. Then cut the audio to fit the cut instead of the other way around.

What you are describing is preciesly what I do as well, except I do it with music. Multiple cameras all capturing the same performance or lesson. Multicam is exactly what you need. It is actually the reason I started using Premiere Pro in the first place. Tons of great tutorials online for this.
