What is a "multiclip"?
I'm still lost though. What exactly are you trying to do here?
I need to find which clip the multicam was made from.. as i need to know the 'time' the footage was recored and the only way i can do this is by reading the time of day timecode off the original 'un-multicammed' clip.
I cant find a way to get back to the origanal timecode as the time of day time code isnt available in the multicam it seems... I just realy want to read the timecode of the clip that i have used in a nutshell

So just open the original sequence. There you will see the clips used.
You would think. But every time i try then time of day timecode is removed and its just timecode starting from 00 00 00 00

PP doesn't remove any timecode. When you open the original sequence, you see the clips that are used in that sequence. If you want to get timecode from one of those clips, open it in the Source Monitor.
Oh ok. Good then it's something I'm doing. Ok this is what i do. I open the cut sequence and right click on an an clip in the time line and select revel in project. It then opens the two camera in the source monitor but timecode reader at the bottom left just shows 00 00 tone code not the time of day it should. Where am I going wrong?

Close... but not quite. You want to open the multiclip NEST. That's the icon where all the little timelines are the same size, NOT the one where they are staggered. Sorry - I'm not on a machine with Premiere or I'd do a screen grab.
When you find the nest in the project panel, right click on it and choose "reveal in timeline". Then you'll get a timeline with both video and audio files. When you click on one of those to show it in the source window it will just display the single camera angle with the correct timecode.
Hope this helps

You want to open the original sequence. You can either double click on it from the bin, or hit CTL+SHIF+F from the multicam sequence.
From there, you want to open the desired clip in the Source Monitor, hit F.
This is pretty basic stuff.
I would agree its pretty basic Jim and thanks for stating that. It seems you take a lot of pleasure from trying to make users feel silly judging by your posts in this forum. Unfortunately I'm used to working with top NLE's such as avid and fcp where getting basic info like this is very very easy. It's not so easy or straight forward with adobe premier or I would not have had to ask. Adobe premier does still lack a lot of features that editors need to use day in day out, which I'm happy to accept and the cost of the software but trying to make me look silly by saying 'this is pretty basic stuff' does not warm, me to the software, adobe, or this forum.
Allynn. Thakyou for your help.. Ill give it a go

It is if you read the directions. That's my point.
There's a proper sequence to all things in life. First learn, then do. You tried to skip step one and got into trouble. If feeling a little silly gets you to correct that, thus avoiding unnecessary difficulty in the future, is that really so horrible?
