how to play multicam monitor when pressing space bar in the timeline ?

Hi there,


In Premiere CS5.5 or CS6, is it possible to link the multicam monitor to the timeline instead of (or in sync with) the Program monitor ?


In other words, when I press the space bar IN THE TIMELINE, I would like the multicam monitor to play, NOT ONLY the program monitor. But if the program monitor plays in sync too, that would be fine as well.


Is it possible ?


It drives me mad when I make roll edits in the timeline and then press play (space bar) but don't see all the cams playing at the same time.

    yip, same here.


    what works for me: shift+3 toggles the timeline and i made a custom shortcut for the MCmonitor, so it's at least easier to switch between the two.

    but this won't solve your "just one of them plays back" - problem.

    Same problem! Currently on a 6 hour multicam project and this realy annoys me. Thanks for the workaround but an option to play both would be great.
