  • In a multicam project, where did I use a particular angle?

    Posted by Brian Thomas on May 5, 2023 at 11:12 am

    Say towards the end of a long edit I decide that I shouldn’t favour a particular angle, is there an easy way to go to or simply highlight the various places I’ve used it? Currently I keep touching cursor down and keep my eye on the angle viewer as it jumps around the window but maybe there’s another way..? Thanks in advance for any help.

    This may (or not) be helpful, but if you open the timeline index and right-click on the column headers, you can select Active Angle to be one of your columns.

    I wasn’t able to search for the angle itself, but you can search on clip name and it’ll show you chronologically every instance of that clip, and which angle is active.

    Hey thomas,

    I know @mets already have answerd your question.

    You can also try it:

    You can easily locate and highlight all the clips in your timeline that are using a particular angle. To do this, select the clip in the browser or timeline that contains the angle you want to locate, and then right-click on it and choose “Select Clips Used” from the drop-down menu. This will highlight all the instances of that angle in your timeline, making it easy to make changes or adjustments as needed.

    MANY thanks to both of you. Sorry I didn’t reply before but I was without any internet.
