Premiere CC 7.1 - Render audio multicam timeline

Nov 2, 2013 3:35 AM

Hello,

 

Last week, I was editing a multicam sequence (in Premiere 7.0.1) and I found it always very usefull to see the waveform.

After upgrading and choosing Sequence -> Render Audio, the CTI jumps to the beginning of the timeline and starts playing and nothing more. No rendering at all.

 

Is there something changed the way this work or is it a bug?

 

Thanks

    In my brief testing of MC in 7.1, rendering audio was not required.  The waveform just showed up on its own, so the behavior you're seeing is normal when you have "Play work area after rendering previews" option checked in Preferences.

     

    Be sure the audio track is expanded enough for you to see the waveform.

    I see what you're saying now.  Same behavior here.  My guess is a bug.

    Same here, frustrating to get bugs like this after an update. I kept saying to myself before this update - it ain't broke - don't fix it, especially before a project dealine, doh!

     

    Thankfully only a minor frustration rather than functional loss

    For me this isn't a minor bug - it's hugely inconvienient.

    A quick workaround/fix is to:

     

    1. ALT select the offending audio track with the missing waveforms  (nested, multicam - doesn't matter)

    2. Right Mouse and slect > Multicam Flatten . That will flatten the track and give you some wavesforms to edit with. If the track isnt Multicam, then make it it one, then flatten.

     

    Any sort of nested clip works with missing waveform can be turned into a multicam track, then flattened -.

     

    Very handy of you are want to flatten exporting the final squence with various multicam/nested edits to Speegrade (native) or resolve friendly EDL/XML.

     

    You can avoid all this hassle if you remmber to  Uncheck the Insert Clips and Comps as Individuals Clips

     

    Hope that helps

    Am I alone in being suprised that a bug in an update like this hasn't been fixed 1 month down the line?

     

    Are so few people frstrated by it / filing a feature request? - Have those here who've come across the bug reported it?

    That's a good workaround for multicam, but it doesn't work for non-multicam nested sequences, because all the edits in the nested sequence will be lost.  Any ideas to workaround that?

    The CC7.2 update includes some improvements in this area. I know a bug with audio waveforms for nested sequences was fixed. Not as sure about multicam sequences--please let us know if that issue remains.

    Yep - its now working for me (nested sequences were my problem rather than multicam).

     

    Thanks for letting us know Mark.
