    Hi, all!

    I shot a scene with 2 cameras (one on the interviewer, one on the interviewee) and I have them both in FC Express, and I have lined them up so that they play in sync.

    My question: what's the easiest way to view them both at the same time for the purpose of deciding when to use footage from camera A and camera B?

    Thanks so much!

    shrink the shots 50% and run them side by side, most of the time you would want to have the person speaking as the main shot, then add reaction shot to brake up any long winded questions or answers.

    unless you are running on a G5, you cant play them both at the same time unless you do what evil_santa said.
