I realize for the example given in this tutorial the lip-sync'd audio would be replaced by the mastered studio audio. However, there are times when I want to use the audio sources from multiple cameras. Is there a technique that allows having the multicam edits to include the different audio sources from the different cameras. I've seen people discuss this, but a tutorial demonstrating how to do this, if possible, would be great.

BTW, I am using CS6 Premiere Pro.

I think my wondering is in line with Al. One of my camera's has the master audio track the other the on board mic. Of course I don't want the audio to "follow" the video but since I disabled the audio I don't want in my (un-nested sequence) I'm not getting audio at all in Multicam.
So I goes in and and deletes the audio track I don't wants and copies the track I want and paste it down where I want it, of course I enable the audio on both tracks.
Now everything is roses.
Another thing I just tried was I grouped everything so I could make slight gain reduction universally. That was good!
As an aside, I am going for Final Cut Training, it IS the future, but that just my inner futurist talking (:

Hi Rich thanks for the Premiere Pro multicam demo, still prefer the flexibility of FCP X it's just way more powerful and quicker, but I'm happy to see how Premiere Pro CS6 tackles this and provides a fluent way of doing multicam.

Thanks for the tutorial. I NEED HELP with a Multicam edit question. It seems like only the Audio 1 track comes with the nested sequence. How do I bring the rest of the tracks into that sequence so I can mix it? I have tried everything I can think off to get them in.
Thanks!!

After spending a couple of days working on multicamera editing with Pr, I think you might want to look into a second part to this. There's a number of steps that aren't mentioned, and need to be addressed to successfully complete putting this together. It seems to be about 75% complete. You might want to address the mastered audio track more completely. The scratch tracks you show are usually thrown out, after syncing, aren't they? And it seems to me that you need to add the mastered track in before creating the multitrack. Not sure I'm clear about how to add it and sync it afterwards.

I don't understand what you were alluding to in your comment, but could guess. Unless I'm missing something, this workflow looks like it could stand significant improvement. But it does work!

Re: Editing Multi-camera Productions - adding soundtrack
by Al Bergstein
Nice job Richard. It has been confusing to me in that I was unsure if I should *sync* my soundtrack into the multicam or afterwards. It wasn't readily apparent when to line up my audio track from the "studio master" to the takes in the multicam sequence.

In other NLE's, I've synced all the tracks, including the master, at the same time. You might want to clarify that syncing these tracks should be done on their own and the master track is added later by what, expanding the audio track to see the waveforms? I cannot seem to see the waveforms in the multitrack sequence. Though it's confusing in the interface because while the waveforms don't show, it does show that I am set to 'show waveforms" in the track id panel to the left of the track.

I've stuck the master track into the sequence when I created the multicam sequence. It seems this is not the way to do it. What is the right way to add the master track, and am I experiencing a local problem with not seeing the waveforms in the multitrack sequence or am I supposed to go back to the original sequence to add the master track?

Not allowed to really comment.. Do know that Adobe is keenly aware and I suspect you'll see progress soon.

Hi Richard

I am one of the many now looking at Premier as a solution now that FCP is floating face down in the water. I'm a music director and cut a lot of multi-clip work. Are you aware that any future versions of PP will allow more than 4 clips and may also add the additional functionality that FCP has with its multi-clip buttons (for adding picture and sound edits on the fly.)

Thanks
Will
