|I know I am probably barking up the wrong tree here but I am not sure where to ask.
I am looking to use a linux machine to record multiple video streams, and an audio stream at the same time. the idea is to make an instructional video. One track will be my voice, another video track will be a camera looking over everything, and another will be a USB camera located inside a microscope that I am working with. Here is that camera. http://www.amscope.com/accessories/camera/10mp-usb3-0-real-time-live-video-microscope-digital-camera-10-mp.html
I have no idea how to try and implement this, but any idea to get me started researching or thinking in the right direction would be awesome.
My intended applciation is instructional videos. I will be recording three tracks at a time that I would like to be in sync. One is from a Crown CM-311a headset microphone. The second is from a USB microscope camera, so that you can see exactly what I am doing very close up. The third will be a camera that looks at everything – me, the tools, the device I am working on. I'd like some way to record these in sync so that I don't have to manually line them up after hitting record in 2 or 3 different pieces of software.
I'd like to be able to switch between the two video tracks, and occasionally have a split screen view so you can see both cameras. I would also like to use a video editor that makes some use of an NVIDIA GPU to offload some of the processing. I do not plan on any special effects, or video filters whatsoever. The work will be purely editing, and some work where I do split screen of the microscope camera & the overall camera.
a) Is it possible to record two video tracks and an audio track all at once?
b) Can any software do this?
Thank you very much!!
