As I said earlier, I can't check adjustment layer behaviour for now. Hence I can't argue for sure whether effects on adjustment layer for 'upper' camera angle will be calculated when you switch to a 'lower' camera angle layer in multicam or not.
As soon as this render is done I'll try it
Jim, if you can't see a layer underneath ever, you hardly need it at all.
The nature of adjustment layer is to affect all other layer underneath. Try e.g. playing with two 'invisible' adjustment layers laying one on another, and you get 'instant sex' effect.

Yes, assuming you can 'see' them. But in the multicam scenario, the AL won't be 'seeing' anything but the clip it's directly on top of.
Jim, I have to repeat third time: I can't check for now whether effects applyed onto adjustment layer for 'upper' camera angle will be calculated or not when you switch to a 'lower' camera angle in multicam.
If you checked that and it works in that way - great!
My point was that you can't check in any program, because there's no way for you to see any layer that's fully covered. So how would you know that adjustment layers work the way you claim in AE if you can't see that layer?
Jim, can you see 'invisible' adjustment layer per se? Have you ever played with two adjustment layers laying one on another so as to get e.g. 'instant sex' effect? Was the lower adjustment layer affected by upper one?
In PrPro CS6 scenario why adjustment layer for lower camera angle should be taken into account at all since it is covered by completely opaque upper camera angle layer as well?
We..... I can tell you they don't do what you think they do.
As I expected, each adjustment layer occupies a video track in a multicam sequence. So, if you had 3 tracks and added an adjustment layer sandwich you now have 6 tracks in the multicam monitor. Adding a three way colour corrector to each of the adjustment layers does absolutly NOTHING to the video because it's not selected as part of the multicam and it therefore is itself 'invisible'.
You can of source select the adjustment layer AS video and end up with some nicely tinted black frames
You have to add the adjustment layer to the final multicam sequence, which of course means slicing it along with each angle.
Well, that means that adjustment layers in PrPro behave in exactly the same way as they do in AE, and you need to nest a camera angle along with its own adjustment layer so as to bring it into multicam scenario directly - easier than add tons of ones into resulting multicam sequence.
