    Hello, I’m trying to multigroup a two-camera interview for a documentary and basically need somebody to tell me what I’m doing wrong.

    My A Cam has 4 tracks of audio, lav mics on A1 and A2 that I want to be the only tracks on my finished group and two dead A3/A4 tracks. B Cam has two tracks of in-camera audio that I want to discard.

    So I made a sync map with my 2 cameras matched to the A Cam A1/A2 tracks, omitting the other audio tracks, and adding Aux TC to match up all the cameras. Then made my add edits and subclipped each video and audio track piecemeal into a bin via the classic mark>go to in>match frame>go to out>out>make sublip combo

    There must be a step I’m missing or doing wrong because when I mulitgroup them all together I’m left with an interview with 4 tracks of video: 3 copies of the A Cam and 1 B Cam, along with all 4 of the original A Cam’s audio tracks. I’m assuming this is because when I make sublcips, I’m matchframing to the source footage, and so my V1, A`1, and A2 subclips are all just copies of the same source clip (A Cam) and my V2 (B Cam) is somehow getting its audio overwritten or not bringing it over at all.

    What am I doing wrong? Avid version 2020.10

    Thanks in advance
