I haven't experienced that issue and I'm editing multicam all the time. That's gotta be frustrating. I do have other issues having to wait several seconds for the video to play when I hit play, which I believe are related to the fact that I'm GPU accelerated because I have 1gb VRAM, but my GPU isn't "officially" supported. Not that it's the case here.
What are your computer specs?
sorry for late reply. yes, It is really frustrating and it stops your workflow terribly. The specs are:
i7 x980 3.33ghz
I dont think this is a performance related problem. It's only started to happen since we switched over to CC and its now happening in two different computers.
CC has lots of problems with Multicam....it used to be a good feature and they're making it worse version after version
I'm just wondering if we're the only ones in the world to have this problem?
i7, quadro 3800
editing a sequence in multicam the playhead doesn't stop
CS6 is OK.
well, so it seems that we are maybe starting to narrow the problem down. It seems to be related to the 'Timeline display settings' (spanner button over on the timeline)
Start to edit your multicam sequence with:
'Show audio waveform' - OFF
'Show audio keyframes' - OFF
'Show audio names' - OFF
no problem, multicam behaves as it should. Then you turn ON the audio waveform and it also seems alright. However when you turn ON the audio keyframes, edit for 5 minutes and the problem starts to happen, the playhead doesn't stop....sometimes it will stop after one minute, 5 minutes or.....never
It is almost as if the memory gets bloated and every action is delayed by minutes!! crazy!! and the behavoiur is pretty much the same in two completely different computers at our studio, too much of a coincidence i reckon
anyone else having problems with this? or similar?
Same issue. Similar specs (i7, 16GB, fast GPU with CUDA...)
turning off audio wavform/keyframe/names did not help.
I have an hour's worth of video to work on... waiting for the thing to play itself out is not an option.
I think someone said this happened with timeline scrolling set to Smooth. Change it to None and see what happens.
Tried setting "Timeline Scrolling" to "None", but the problem persists, sadly.
Has a fix been done for this started happening to me after 1 hr of muticam DLSR shoot of school stage drama projects - just wont stop supposed to hand this in tomorrow going crazy.....
i have the latest 7.2.1 (4) release - high end PC I7 16GB ram etc
had to export into CS6 but that even fails with the rendering message - so fix was to just have one audio track throughout - not happy having to pay for professional cloud service high end software which does not do what its meant to do without workarounds and compromises - support please tell me i am doing something wrong

Very frustrating bug in multicam. Anyone come up with a solution?
Hi all, I did a little trouble shooting. The above suggestions did not help me.
What did work for me was to minimise my Premiere Multicam Layout from 3 Monitors = (Custom Layout - Multicam on Middle Monitor, Timeline spanned across 3, Left and Right Monitor with effects, Media browser, Color Scopes etc etc) down to the 1 Monitor =(Layout CS5.5 Multicam).
And this stopped the problem from occuring.
My computer is a bit of a God Box, Twin 2.5 i7 24 Cores 64Ram 6xSSD Drives with a Quatro 5000k graphics card and 4 Monitors. So I am not sure as to why there is a problem with multicam play back in a multi monitor layout. I would have thought the info-tubes would be big enough to cater for multicam in multi-monitor layout.
