  • CS4 Multi Camera Audio only using Audio 2 from source

    Posted by Joseph M. morgan on October 1, 2011 at 10:08 pm

    Filmed interviews with 2 cameras. Have their tracks on timeline synched. Dropped them into a new sequence and turned on multi camera. I can ONLY hear Audio Track #2 from the source. This is what I have tried:

    If I turn On “Audio follows video” and it does what it should, I get audio 1 with video 1 and audio 2 with video 2.

    If I turn off “Audio follows video” in multi-camera monitor and select the “Audio 1” track. It stays on Audio 2. If I mute or delete the audio 2 track in the synched source, I hear nothing.

    The only way I found it to work is if I delete audio track 2 in the source, and move audio track 1 into audio track 2, and then turn off audio follows video. All fine.

    As an experiment ( to test to see if it was just picking the last audio track from the synch source ), I moved my audio 1 into audio 3…. no joy.

    We have quite a large number of interviews, all filmed, synched and combined in this way. We’ve edited the multi-camera sequence down to what we want in our film, and now want to use the right audio track. What am I missing?

    Well, I did figure out something. In the multi-camera sequence, I now know it is picking up the audio of the currently selected camera on the timeline. Somehow, for some of them, I had switch the currently selected camera to MC2 on the timeline.

    I suspect, then, that when you turn off “Audio follows video”, the audio it chooses is the audio selected in the timeline.
