I am working with CS6 and a member of creative cloud. I'm relatively inexperienced as an editor and self taught. so, if anyone can help - please can you keep it as simple as possible!?
I did a 5 camera shoot which now needs editing. 4 cameras exported MP4 and one MTS - 2.5hrs of 1920 x 1080 progressive each .
The media is sitting on a raid drive.
Yesterday - all the clips were on the timeline - and all the clips were synced. All the cameras had timecode fed to them - but due my inexperience I was unable to get this to work in Premiere so I did it manually.
Today - the clips look fine in the project panel - but some, when you hover over them - show the YELLOW MEDIA UNAVAILBLE window.
This fills me with dread as I spent the whole day on the editing and was half way through, and the client needs it this week, AAAGGHH.
Why - all of a sudden should Premiere not see the files??
The media has not been moved.
I have tried 'reconnecting' but to no avail.
When restarting - it doesn't say that media is missing, all looks fine.
Has anyone had a similar problem??
Really need any help I can get please!!
Sometimes it takes a few minutes for PP to 'reconnect' with all the media.

There is a tutorial list in message #3 http://forums.adobe.com/message/2276578 that may help... although I don't know if there is anything that specifically mentions multi-camera editing
