  • CS6 mult-cam setup with separate audio-only track?

    Posted by Joe Marler on November 15, 2012 at 2:41 pm

    With combined audio/video tracks, setting up multi-cam in CS6 is easy. However it’s common to have separate audio-only tracks you want to edit as a multi-camera sequence in conjuction with the combined audio/video tracks, with “audio follows video” disabled.

    How should this be set up in CS6 so multi-cam editing allows selection of the audio-only track?

    Just use your audio only track as one of the angles, properly synced of course, and it will become a selectable angle in your multi clip

    Thanks for the response, but that doesn’t work. You cannot “use the audio track as one of the angles” in a multi-cam source sequence.

    Even though all tracks are sync’d with an IN point, you can’t select them in the project pane, right-click and pick “Create Multi-Camera Source Sequence” — the option is greyed out if there’s a separate audio-only track.

    I am highly confused by this. What is the point of improving CS6 multi-cam ease of use, if it does not cover the most common situations? It is very common to have a separate audio-only track in multi-cam editing.

    Please share with me, how you solved this problem? I’m also looking for the answer to this question!

    This is the only way I have been able to work around this. Very inefficient, if you ask me, but the best I’ve got…

    Say you have 2 video/audio clips and 1 audio only clip you want to multi cam. Select the 2 A/V clips and create the multicam clip. Open the new multi cam clip in the timeline, copy and paste the audio only clip into the timeline. That should do it.
