If i ctrl dbl click the nest it will open and show just like multicam sequence
So...what's wrong with doing that?
Ahhh... Because that's not using the multicam editing function....
OK, I'm confused, so I'll just start from the beginning.
1. Add all your clips to a sequence.
2. Sync them up manually.
3. Nest that first sequence into a second sequence.
4. Right click that nested sequence and Enable Multicam.
Yes, now step 5 is select multi cam in the program monitor, but it is completely black. You double click the nested/multicam to show it in source monitor and its shows like multicam , but you can't edit properly.
I am talking CC here too which changed the multicam monitor into a selection within the program monitor.
OK, you've scanned through the sequence and the clips never show up in the multicam monitor? I've seen folks ask 'where is my footage' when they were looking at a part of the multicam before that clip appeared.
Yea scanned all the way through nothing.
Any in Program monitor it doesn't show anything, the multicam or the main view, if i go to composite view it shows whatever cam is activate, I can right click and have the options to show cam 1-6 which upon changing will work, but the main function of the "multicam view" isn't working. I should note that if i create the multicam from the project panel it does work, but seeing I have put all the entire event of each concert in one timeline and cut and named each song this workflow would be a lot quicker than marking out each song and bringing it from the project panel.
Any help would be great I really wanted to get a lot done today on this project and this is a cork in my pipline.
ok, i redid part of the process and got it to work, I had to unlink the audio first before creating the nest, not sure why this made a difference but it did. I then tried to copy and past the new multicam into the already named sequence and it wouldn't work again... so i just deleted the original and renamed the new one. .. so sort of solved and if anyone comes accross this thread :
Go back , select all clips and unlink from audio, then create nest and then turn too multicam
worked for me
Ok after another day of editing I come to realize the very simple mistake I had made and hopefull by sharing will help others in the same situation. I am surprised that i was unable to find it anywhere or get anyone to point out such a simple thing.
If you ever have a multicam sequence running and all of the sudden think, where is my footage why is it all black ?
You must have the video channel with your multicam nested sequence selected for the multicam monitor to show, ie. if you deselect to add another layer on top of a multicam , you must go back and reselect the channel which has your nested sequence ie. V1 V2 or whatever you may have renamed it too.
Hope this helps others in the future.
Good tip, never thought of that.
