Can somebody please explain to me how to include more audio tracks in a multicam sequence?

Good evening Adobe friends.

 

I'm going to try my absolute hardest not to write with the burning passion of wanting to claw my eyes out. It's going to be hard. Bottom line, I don't *for the life of me* understand the infrastructural logic behind Multicam Sequences. It feels like a feature that takes more luck than know-how to succeed with. 

 

I've created a project, in which I've included three cameras as well as separately recorded audio. Selecting my three camera angles I then created a Multicam Sequence and started chopping away at editing the scenes. I then wanted to open the Multicam Sequence, pop in the right audio track, synchronize it with the cameras, mute the camera audio and export.

 

Sounds simple, but apparently not? The Multicam Sequence is tied to the sound of Camera 1, which I realize is an option you can specify when you create the multicam sequence. But that HAS to be able to be changed after the Multicam Sequence is created, right!? 

 

I have another project in which I've (to the best of my ability) done the exact same thing, and it just works. if I add an audio track inside the Multicam Sequence, it plays in a sequence made from the Multicam Sequence. 

 

I'm so complete and utterly confused.

 

Help will be greatly appreciated.

don't have a lot of time, so it's possible you eliminated this possibility, but select the multicam sequence in the project/bin and control click and choose open in timeline and you should be able to add tracks and move things around as desired

took a break and revisited your post.  You want to update the multicam after it's edited into your sequence and have the sequence reflect the changes in the multicam?

It updates when I make changes, so that's not the issue. But for some reason, the multicam sequence only allows the audio track tied to the first camera angle to be used. I know this is a setting when you create the multicam sequence, but there has got to be a way to change it after you create it, right?

 

What I ended up doing was scrapping the whole sequence and then created a nested sequence instead and then manually changing it to a multicam sequence. Then everything works as it should. God what an annoying issue.

 

Thanks for the help anyway!
