How to change the number of multicam previews (CS6)?

Sep 20, 2012 1:54 PM

Hi folks,


Just invested in CS6, upgraded from CS5, and I've got the following problem.


When I create a multicam edit, the old fanshioned way using sequence nesting, I can't seem to adjust the number of multicam preview windows, or rather reduce the number.


I'm preparing to use the multicam monitor to edit 3 clips, left cam, centre cam, right cam, from a musical performance, however the default number of previews in the multicam monitor is 9, where I only need 3. The problem being the 3 previews I need are really small because of the un-used blank previews, all 6 of them.


How can I reduce the number of multicam previews to the number I require, resulting in larger sized previews? e.g. In this case I imagine 4 preview spaces would make better use of the screen real estate. Any help would be greatly appreciated.



Thanks in advance.

    You need to delete all empty video tracks in the source sequence.

    It's not so much that you have 9 previews.  The window is scalable, so it's filling up the unused area with black.


    Lose the preview monitor and that space will be more appropriately filled.
