you speak of nesting and flattening - for that I presume you use the 'insert and overwrite sequences as nests or individual clips' button
to flatten your multicamera sequence - right click your sequence in your Project bin and choose 'New Sequence From Clip' in the pop-up menu
sorry, I am not able to obsorb all the other stuff you have written, not that it is not clear, just my focus is limited
Dummergold thanks for your reply,
Sorry if there's confusion it's really difficult to explain. Just to make things clear I have created my multi camera sequence by highlighting all of my clips in the sequence (once they're synced with the audio), then ctr-clicking them and hitting nest. I then name my new multi-cam sequence enable the sequence for multi cam viewing and then start making my cuts.
I've been multicamming this way for a while.
Once i've made my cuts I like to flatten all of my clips (by ctrl-clicking all of my cuts and then hitting -multicam-flatten) to reduce strain on cpu and because I know then thats my visual lock. Unfortunately I'm not able to flatten my clips at the minute which is what I was trying to explain above.
I've closed and re-opened my project and the clips are all out of order again and when flattening some of the clips this time some of them do flatten.
The issue is that the clips when flattened flatten a load of other clips at the same time and they've somehow all become one single flattened clip which has no cuts, as if I never multicammed at all! This is really messed up and unfortunately I don't think theres a simple answer.
I don't know why your response says 'correct answer' how do I remove this?!?
thanks for trying to help though,
In honesty my multi cam sequences never display that icon. In the second pic below you can see in the browser window that my sequences have the same icon whether they have multi cam clips in them or not. I may be doing something wrong here but I've been doing multi cam like this for months now and it's been fine until now.
I have just noticed that there are little white marker type looking things on the clips that have issues with them. There are around 8 clips at the start of the sequence shown below that are in order. From around 38 seconds however the clips are all over the place (some repeats, etc). The first image shows the playhead at a point before the error clips start. The second image shows my playhead further along the timeline viewing a black screen which makes no sense to me at all.
i do not multicam the way you do
when I try the way you do and nest, then multicam enable, then multicam flatten, I loose the ability to choose that same multicamera option for the second time as it wants me to nest again
I will not be able to replicate the issues you are having
any suggestion I would make would be a shot in the dark
I do see that your method will allow you to multicam, but if it causes that kind of trouble what is the use in persuing that method
I hope someone can offer you better help
