Making of "Friction called quest" live music video

In our studio, we have a three-camera setup for live streaming. These cameras are connected to OBS, our preferred streaming software.

Additionally, we can incorporate audio from our Behringer U-Phoria UMC1820 USB Audio Interface, allowing us to mix and enhance the sound quality for the stream.

OBS not only enables us to stream the 3-camera video and mixed sound but it also saves it as a high-definition video simultaneously. So we can create live music videos for our songs.

Typically, I would edit the videos to switch between the cameras during performances. However, the intro section of our song "Friction Called Quest" has so much going on. 

The piano chimes, Eric playing two guitar parts simultaneously, the baritone sax lead, and the bass and drums rip into it right away.

The only solution I could think of was to create a 5-way split screen to capture the intro of the song (which was a huge pain to do by the way hahaha).
