Record on TWO Cameras at the same time – Filmic Double Take Tutorial


today I’m going to show you how you can
record videos not only on the front-facing camera of your smartphone
but also on the rear facing camera at the same time so you can do crazy stuff
like this what up guys welcome back to another episode
my name is AttiBear and first of all happy New Year to you I know I’ve been
absent on YouTube for the past weeks but there’s a good reason for it because
I’ve been travelling New Zealand for four weeks straight and let me tell you
this in my opinion there is almost no more beautiful country in the world than
New Zealand and there was so much stuff to explore but I know you’re not here to
learn about New Zealand you’re here to learn how you can record on both sides
of your smartphone with one little app at the same time today we’re going to
talk about an app called double take from filmic and you have heard me talk
about filmic in the past because when it comes to high quality video recording on
your smartphone there’s pretty much no way around filmic Pro cuz they have all
the bells and whistles your regular video recording app on your smart phone
is normally missing but before we continue I know this will upset a lot of
you guys out there cuz double-take is only available for iPhone 11 and iphone
11 Pro cuz it has the necessary processing power to display for streams
and record to streams of video at the same time so unfortunately there will be
no support for older Apple devices and at this point in time there is no word
about an android support whatsoever and before I show you more cool ways to use
this app let’s talk basics so here we are in the app and there are not many
options to choose from so here on the top left corner you can see all your
previous recordings and they all need to be exported in order for you to be able to
use them in whatever you are editing in on the bottom left corner you can select the
different view angles so you always have a B and an A camera your A camera
basically will be the biggest screen you will have available so I’m going for a
selfie cam and my ultra-wide will be my B camera so I can switch between these
two cameras here on the bottom you can see I have selected 24 frames so if I
want to I can switch to 25 or 30 frames but since we are always recording in
cinematic ish settings on our phone I’m going for 24 frames so once I’m happy
with all my selecting I hit confirm and then I’m back on my main screen so
you’ve already seen this little bracket that was showing up for a short moment
so this is your exposure setting so if I tap the camera here in the back it is
setting the exposure for the camera here you can see you easily can also move
this box around to adjust your exposure constantly but if you want to lock it in
you need to tap it a second time so this way your exposure will be locked into
place and stays this way also here is my picture in picture so I
have both view angles at the same time on my display if it’s in my way in
whatever I’m recording I can just swipe it away and with this little arrow I can
bring the image back in also if I want to focus on the other side of the camera
I can enlarge the view and you know focus on the thing that is behind my
phone or basically is my B camera and also I can minimize it again hey its
future me and while I’m editing this video right now I started to notice that
it’s turning into a massive multicam project so if you want me to teach you
how you can edit Multi Cam projects let me know down in the comments below
and by the way this is how this whole thing looks at the moment so this is one
of the biggest multicam projects I did so far so let me know now you may be
wondering why would you even ever want to record on both cameras at the same
time on your iPhone well actually there are a bunch of use cases that really
benefit from such a feature so let’s say I want to talk to you face-to-face
therefore I normally would use the front-facing camera so I can see myself
here in the corner but also maybe I want to show you something on your
normally for this I would need to stop the recording switch the lens to the
back and then you always need to stitch all that stuff in post this way you just
easily record both lenses at the same time and as I’m talking to you on this
side here I also can show you something on the other side so you can see here my
ATOMOS my EOS R my whole recording rig and at the same time I can switch
angles and point here to the camera and show you my rig here in the back so
there’s no easier way to record all the stuff you’re doing at once without the
need to record it in multiple camera setups so this way you have a way easier
job in post and the cool thing is that’s not only the one feature it gives you
the recording mode I just explained to you is called discrete which means that
both camera angles are recorded into separate video files so you will not see
the one image in the other recording so you can basically edit both video files
to your liking and there is also an option to record both cameras into one
file so you can use it for example on social media or any kind of other
Video platform accessing this feature is pretty easy you just tap on the
feature selector on the top right corner and you can see it already says pip so
this means the Box I’m dragging around here is recorded into my video later
so if I now hit record this video will be burned into this main video here I
can also switch to the back to explain whatever I want to explain to you then
if you have a talking part you already can switch back again and forth and back
this is how easy it is to record with this app and we are still not done
there’s one more option so back in the app and we are selecting now
split-screen the split-screen option is the one where it gets really crazy so I
can see myself here on the left side and my order camera
on the right side so which is my back facing camera but you can see in a
moment I’m reaching forward I’m already getting so close to the camera that it’s
in my opinion too close since we are losing the space above my head and below
and also on both sides so with the back facing camera it’s a little bit better
since the little white camera is way wider than the selfie camera but it’s
more like an interview position where you can you know put your camera onto a
tripod or something and it’s sitting between you and your interviewed person
which would make this way easier aside from that I don’t see too much practical
use for this kind of view setup another option for you to record videos is that
you can use your for example ultra wide and telephoto lens at the same time so
if you enter your lens settings you can select ultra wide and the Tele lens and
this way you are now able to record a wide-angle shot and a close-up scene at
the same time so this is a really cool thing because you don’t need to zoom
into whatever you’re recording in post you can record everything you need right
from the start you just need to set up your scene correctly okay so what is
their overall to say about double take I think double take is a really unique
tool and it gives me possibilities that I never had before to achieve something
like double take does whip in one little smartphone you had to have two cameras
and tripods and stuff like that and yet again you now can all do that stuff just
in your smartphone so I mentioned last year that I think 2020 will be an
interesting year for smartphone creators and well I guess this is proof that we
are going to see way more cool stuff coming ahead of us so if you haven’t
already checked out my previous tutorials on how to create better video
just on your smartphone make sure to take a look at them and if you enjoy

for watching and I see you in the next one peace
