Are you sure you're talking about a multicam situation here? It sounds more like you just need to merge the video with separately recorded audio, whereas multicam is for multiple camera angles from the same event, usually over longer periods like concerts or sporting events.
Hey Jim. I'm definitely talking about multiple cameras here, but for a narrative shot with multiple cameras (vs. an event).
For my workflow, I need multicams to behave as "clips" with all the functionality of clips (i.e. the ability to view them in the source monitor, set in and out points, etc).
FCP treated multiclips as clips, so it was perfect. I believe avid does the same. Meanwhile, as far as I can tell, Premiere treats multiclips as sequences which is really annoying if you're working in narrative and only need a few seconds from multiclip1, then want to cut to a few seconds from multiclip 2, and both the multiclips themselves are 10 minutes...
The workaround I've figured out is opening the multi-clip sequence in the source monitor and treating it as if it's a clip (setting in and out points, then putting it in the timeline etc). But it's still annoying to have to press command everytime I open it. Is there no way to get these multicam sequences to function more like clips and by default open to the source monitor?
