View window for every track on the timeline?

Dec 13, 2013 5:36 AM

Hi folks,


ist it possible to create a separate viewing window for every video track on the timeline?

I would like to use this for manual syncing of tracks that can neither be synced by timecode nor audio.


Display all four tracks side by side, slide the view position to a prominent scene and

then adjust the other tracks one by one to finally match all tracks.


Any hints?

    Hi Michael Quack,


    Welcome to the forums.


    Separate viewing window for each track in the timeline is not possible. But you can open the timeline in full screen and then expand the tracks to show audio waveform of all the tracks for syncing it with the video. To expand the timeline to full screen you just have to take your mouse curson on the timeline panel and press grave accent key or tilde key(~), then you can expand the tracks to have a clear view.

    On a side note, Premiere Pro doesn't have 'viewing windows'.  It has a Source Monitor on the left, and a Program Monitor on the right.


    There is a difference between them, so knowing the correct terms going forward will help us understand your questions better, and also help you understand our answers.

    Have you looked into a Multi-cam setup for your Project?


    That sounds like what you are attempting to accomplish, but maybe I am missing something important.


    Good luck,

    One solution would certainly be to scale and map every track to a fraction of the program monitor, do the synching and then remove scaling/mapping again


    That may be your only option here.  Bill's multicam suggestion is the way to edit, but it won't work on the original source sequence for syncing.
