Okay I found out you can scrub the timeline while watching the Multi-Cam window or you can scrub the multi Cam window and then find a place you need to switch cams and simply click to the new cam. So instead of playing it you can simply scrub it. So it's a work around in a way. Anyway I thought I'd share as scrubbing the timeline is a much faster edit then watching it and not being able to control the playback speed easily.
Im not in front of my edit station right now, but did you try j-k-l while recording multicam?
Yes and once it starts "recording" Or when the box goes from Yellow to Red you can't change direcction or playback speed.
I see. If it is a long segment you can just click ahead in the timeline and restart whereever you want. One advantage of ppros multicam implementation is you can replay over an already cut segment and recut with no problem.
Yes, there are quite a few flaws with the way PPRO handles multi-cam edits. But, there are advantages as well. For instance, you can create nested sequence and color-correct the entire camera angle, without having to work on every shot.
That color correction thing is a BIG plus if you ask me.
"In CS3 we can do this but once you start "recording" the speed is set with FC you can change speeds anytime without stoping the playback and still switch cameras. It's REALLY frustrating that PPRo3 doesn't do that!"
What are you talking about?
When I start "recording" I have full control of forward and backwards directions with the J-K-L shuttle keys. I can also control the speed; e.g. play fast forward by pressing L a couple of times.
I can do all of this without stopping the playback and I can switch cameras while doing it.
Maybe you should find some tutorials or look at the online manual to learn how to use the multi-cam feature? Or maybe I just don't understand your complaint?
