Audio Waveforms not showing in Multicam Clips

Did a quick search here and did Render --> Audio but I still don't see waveforms. My multicam sequence settings are multichannel mono mapped to 7 channels...trying to insert interview clips in a non-multicam standard timeline. Not sure if I have to change my audio settings on my timeline but would like to see all waveforms...I see waveforms when I drop clip as un-nested but would rather match frame back to the synced audio rather than the source audio.

I only work in stereo.  One possibility is that the multichannel is causing the weirdness.

I figured since I have multiple tracks of audio recorded (7 mono), then I would create a multicam sequence to mirror that. but maybe not?

Here's how I do it.  It solves a lot of weirdness that occurs using the auto-method.

Manual Multi-Camera Method

When you get to Step 4, select only the video track to Enable.

Thanks, that helped generate audio waveforms but also mixed down all my audio tracks into one...don't really want that.

The audio from both methods is nested.  The only difference here is that you can now hear all the audio from the Source Sequence, rather than just A1.  You can mix in that Source Sequence and it will pass through to the nest.

The manual method outlined above still doesn't show the waveforms for all audio tracks nor am I sure that I'm hearing them all since only the first two tracks appear to play audio out of the eight which should exist in the multicam clip.

There must be a better way to do this in Premiere?  How do people edit with multicam clips with more than two tracks?

Thanks.

I got something to work! Right click on the multi-cam clip in your timeline, under "Multi-Camera" slide over and un-check "Enable." Then right click on the same clip again and check "Enable" again. Waveforms popped right up for me.

After trying tons of other methods, I found yours and it worked! Thanks so much!

This worked!  My multicam was showing inaccurate waverforms, (i.e. they didn't match when the talent was actually talking) and this fixed it!  Thanks for sharing.

Same - definitely was the trigger for bringing my 7 track audio multicam clip back to full visual realization!  Thanks for your share!

Brilliant, that worked! But... why? Looks like a bug to me.

I'm working on a project and had a few multicam clips I had created. A few had the waveform as I wanted and some didn't. I did just get a few of this to start turning online though.

In the clips that weren't showing waveform, I had a few empty audio and video tracks and had left the camera audio in the clip, just unenabled. I deleted the turned off audio clips and pull everything to as close as A/V1 as I could and then deleted all empty tracks. So far, that has fixed every clip I've tried it on.

I fixed this problem deleting all audio peak and media cache files in the folowwing folders:

C:\Users\User\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Common\Peak Files

C:\Users\User\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Common\Media Cache

C:\Users\User\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Common\Media Cache Files

 

So when you start Premiere again, audio peak and media cache files will be created again and waveforms will shows in the multicamera track.
