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.
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.
Thanks for replying.
I can't sync on audio, because audio is different on cameras 1-3 and not even there on cameras 4+5.
See above - I stated that I can't sync by audio.
I'd like to have a program monitor for every track, or a split screen window where all tracks on the
timeline are displayed side by side.
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, bit I'd like something less tedious.
So, instead of one program monitor with the result of what I am doing I'd like a single track monitor
for every track on the timeline, and I want them in synced view, moving the cursor along the timeline
should advance all videos on the track monitors simultaneously.
In the future I will more often run into the situation that I have to deal with several video sources
where neither timecode nor audio will match at all, and syncing by sight will be the only solution.
Also, not all cameras will run over the whole project time. I can put them on the timeline sorted
by cameras, where one camera's content will be on one track in a chronological order, though.

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.
