    CS6 Multi-cam...multi audio?

    Akradon360

      Now I can't seem to figure this out for the life of me. Me and my friends have tried to do a 'lets play' type of video. So we have 3 different recordings of Xbox screens (done via HD-PVRs) which have 3 seperate audios. But using the multi-cam setting I can only get one of the audios to play or all 3 at the same time so it sounds like a mess.

       

      How do I get it (if there's a way) to play the correct audio to the video currently being shown? I have gone into the sequence and toggled the track output on all 3 audios. Ticked and unticked the 'audio follows video' option inside the multi-cam screen, but to no avail?

       

      I'm not sure if I'm just missing something or that it can't be done. Any help will be appriciated.

          I've been a longtime Premiere user, but hadn't needed to delve deeper into Multicam sequences until a project I started today. I spent all morning and ran into the same limitation you described. Now that I've discovered a solution, I've been posting replies to all the threads that have had this issue, so someone searching for the solution like I did this morning may see it too!

           

          Using screenshots and putting text together using Photoshop, you can view my workaround here:

           

          The first step is creating your Multi-Cam sequence properly:

          The second step is duplicating the multi-cam sequence's audio onto separate tracks, then enabling Multi-Camera on the audio. You then switch each audio to the corresponding track number.

          Hopefully that makes more sense in the image:

          It's not perfect by any means, and it's a little messy, but it'll get the job done. For me, it was a necessity as I am cutting scenes and may need to mute the boom track, adjust levels on a lav track, etc.

          I hope my diagrams make sense; I sorta cobbled them together quick because I really wanted to share it with the Adobe community before heading back to work!

            Toggle only track 1 in the multicam sequence and then check Audio Follows Video.

              Thanks for the reply. Will try this when I next get some footage to sync up. I've tried it quickly with 3 random files but couldn't get it to work. I may have missed something since I sped through it though.
