I have a continuous multicam sequence of about 13 minutes containing a synced master audio track recorded from seperate microphones. I want to rearrange scenes from it into my final sequence, but when I select a range of clips to nest the entire length of audio gets pasted into the new sequence. I want to trim the audio to match just the clips I've selected but not lose sync. Is there a way to do this or is nesting not the way to chop up a sequence and rearrange the scenes in it?
Me too!!! I have a multicam sequence from 2 cameras with the audio staying on camera 1. I also have a seperate, continuous audio track recorded from microphones which I have synced to the timeline. I'm trying to select a group of sequential clips of different camera angles from the timeline to create scenes which I can insert into a final sequence but in a different order from how they are on the timeline. Let's say I want to take a series of clips that start at 3:30 on the timeline and go until 4:30 on the timeline. It will contain several cuts between the different cameras and I want to use that section as the first scene of my new sequence. If I select all of the clips in that time period and nest them into a new sequence, I only get the audio from camera 1 on the new TL. If I try window selecting those clips to include the continuous audio track, I get a new TL with 3 minutes and 30 seconds of the desired audio, then the video clips, and then the rest of the audio making a 13 minute TL. I just learned, after searching around, about marking in and out points on my multicam seq. and using the trick of "LIFTing" and then "UNDOing" to keep my multiseq intact, and then pasting into a new sequence. That works, but I'm only getting the audio track from off the camera. It won't select and lift the section of the other audio track that I want. I'm rushed for time so that's the way I've ended up finishing the video for now. The camera audio is just going to have to do although the mic recording is much better. The more I try to explain this the more confused I get and I'm sure everybody reading it does too. Any ideas? Thanks!

Now I'm getting the picture.
Don't nest. Select the clips in the sequence and either Cut or Copy those clips, then Paste them in the Master sequence.
You're right, nesting is probably not the way to go but just selecting the clips doesn't copy the audio because the audio is not cut up into clips--- but I think I just figured it out. When I first marked an in and out and then "LIFTed" it , it did cut out and copy the audio, but only the audio track from the camera. I just now realized that I apparently didn't have the other audio track (my desired track) enabled. The box at the left of the tracks, I don't know what you call it, where you expand-contract and set key frames etc., was not highlighted. It seems to work great now, cutting and copying out the video clips and both audio tracks and letting me paste them into a new sequence. I just have to be sure to use "UNDO" after lifting to keep my multicam sequence intact.
