      I've just sent Adobe the following FR, and I'm wondering what other people here think.  Thanks!

      Brief title for your desired feature:  Flexible display of camera angles in Multicam window

       

      How would you like the feature to work?

      Ability to display 2 camera angles one above the other (as FCPX does it), or 2 or more camera angles side by side in a long window configuration, for example.

       

      Why is this feature important to you?

      The current display options in PP CS6's Multicam window are too rigid.  If an editor wants to cut between 2 camera angles, why does screen real estate have to be wasted on 2 empty (i.e. black) camera angles underneath in a 2x2 camera configuration?  This is very poor UI design.  Apple gives its editors different display options in FCPX, such a 2, 4, 9 or 16 cameras displayed, but Adobe could take this one step further, by allowing even more display options, such as 2 or more cameras being displayed side by side, or all in a single column, to best accommodate different screen sizes and palette configurations.  Reconfiguring the orientation of camera angles could be as simple as resizing the multicam window.  Just like the audio meters window reconfigures from a vertical to horizontal orientation depending on how it is resized, the multicam window could automatically snap camera angles into a vertical, horizontal or square grid orientation depending on how the user resizes the window.
