  • CS6 Multicam Question

    Posted by Angelo Lorenzo on April 15, 2012 at 6:56 am

    If anyone knows, is multi-cam in CS6 able to play the master or submix from the nested sequence? Or are the audio tracks still strictly ganged to their corresponding cameras?

    One work around I’ve done is to unlink the nested sequence and only enable multi-cam on the video portion, so the audio plays with the full master track. The disadvantage is that none of the multicam cuts transfer to the audio so I have to manually cut it if I want to trim air out of the sequence.

    Todd’s video seemed to indicate that it came from audio track 1 of the source sequence. So stack your cameras so that the audio you want comes is edited from track 1 in the source sequence.

    Yes, I think that is correct. But doesn’t CS 5.5 do it that way too? It seems to me that is the way I did my last multicam a few months ago.

    Yes, CS 5.5 does it the same way: if you cut with the multi-cam monitor the audio track stays locked on audio one (or, more likely whatever camera you start the recording with). If you adjust clips later on by right clicking and assigning new cameras, if the audio is linked, then the audio will be assigned to the new camera; i.e. if you right click and select camera four and the audio is linked then the audio will switch to audio track 4. If you noticed my original post, it’s why I unlink the audio as part of my multi-cam workflow.

    Very good point about unlinking. I forgot about that.

    Yes, it works the same way.
