I see :)
I made a screen record so hope my problem will be understood now :)
Create a sequence for each camera (ie. CAM1, CAM2, CAM3), and then put the clips from each camera into its respective sequence. Then, create a new sequence and nest the CAM1, CAM2, and CAM3 sequences into it and stack them, as you would if the camera clips were not broken up. From there, the nested sequences will act just like unbroken clips, and you can put your clip markers on them to sync them up.
This is, of course, assuming that you can put the broken clips back together in their original sequences. Otherwise, this isn't going to help you.
That's it! Problem solved!
Thanks a lot!
Cheers--glad to help!
I did a multi camera edit of Act 1 of a taped performance and all went well. Moved on to Act 2, which ran longer and each camera needed a tape change. So I matched the clips from each camera on each video track and tried to move on to the sync & then create a multi camera sequence stage of the project. That's when I hit a road block. I could not sync the four video tracks. So I consulted Adobe's on line help and this was all I could find about my predicament:
Note: Adobe Premiere Pro uses an overlay edit when synchronizing clips. Take care not to overwrite adjacent clips if you have multiple clips on the same track.
So what was I to do next? I found your post and now know exactly what to do. Thanks for a great explaination and saving me a lot of head scratching.
Why couldn't Adobe explain it as well?
