I have been editing a multi-camera sequence in Premiere CC 2017. Everything was going just fine but now I don't seem to have the two views to choose from in the program window. It is only showing me the one camera shot what happened? I really need that second camera back.
I followed the process for creating a multi-cam sequence. And like I said, it was working just fine until I obviously clicked something that got rid of the second camera. The program window is set to multi-camera. And it's enabled.
Thank you for responding so quickly, however, I don't quite understand your response.
I don't want to start over on this project by creating a new timeline, I've already spent several hours editing the current timeline. Therefore, creating a new manual multi-camera sequence is not exactly the answer I was hoping for.
Here are some additional screenshots to hopefully present my issue better.
Here's what my program window looks like now. (only one camera showing)
Here is what I want it to look like again. (I created a whole new project to get this screenshot.)
I created a multi-cam sequence and that what's I was using. I just don't know how I went from having multiple camera angles to choose from to just one.
Here's the sequence I'm using. And you'll see I even duplicated it with hopes that it would give me back the second camera angle. It didn't.
Lastly, just for fun. Here's what the edited timeline looks like. And this is why I don't wish to start over.
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE help, I really don't want to have to start over.
I just don't know how I went from having multiple camera angles to choose from to just one.
That happens when the same clips are used for both angles in the Source Sequence. You need to check the Source sequence.
I'm really not trying to be difficult but when I look at it in the source monitor it's showing me the dual angles, why not in the program monitor? I haven't changed anything that I'm aware of.
Check the Source sequence. Right click on it in the bin and Open in Timeline.
I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I still cannot see the second camera.
Here's what I did.I went back to the source sequence (the top one listed in the image below 0001CLMulticam 01) in the project bin and right clicked on it and told it to open in the timeline.
I closed all the open sequences in the timeline. I then right clicked on the source sequence (the top one listed in the image below 0001CLMulticam 01) in the project bin and right clicked on it and told it to open in the timeline.
I even did that with the other two timelines shown in the image below thinking that maybe I misunderstood what a source sequence was.
I'm starting to give up hope. This project is due tomorrow, so I think I'm going to have to just start over.
Right click on 0001CLMulticam 01 and Open in Timeline. Take a look at what clips are at the timecode in question.
Both clips are fully intact, there's nothing odd about them. How would they have gotten disrupted anyway, I've been working off of the new sequence that I created from that original source multi-cam sequence.
I found that if I make a cut in the multi-cam sequence video and then right click and open multi-camera and switch cameras there I can make it work. It's not ideal but it will have to do because I really don't want to start over.
I really appreciate your patience. I feel that the solution is all going to come down to one little check box that I somehow checked/unchecked and did know that I did. UGH!!!!
Yeah, it is definitely just another bug in Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2017 (there seem to be a ton).
I had to make a cut in each track of the source sequence to see each each camera in the multi-cam sequence. Pretty lame, but it worked.
So, doing a razor cut on each track in the source sequence yesterday worked, but today, I'm back to not being able to see some cameras. The razor cut did not work today so, I deleted recently created media cache files. Yep, that worked. Makes no sense!
I wish Adobe would fix the bugs with multi-cam sequences. Getting closer to making the switch over to DaVinci Resolve...
I had this same problem in premiere cc2018. I just solved that creating a new sequence and copying (crtl+a, crtl+c) everything in the old timeline to the new one. Come on adobe this is ridiculous. Never had this problem in cc2014.
THANK YOU! This is the only thing that worked for me.
I think I found a possible solution thanks to a post on YouTube (Fix Multicam Sequence not working Premiere Pro CC 2015 - YouTube)
To summarise, the multicam video track (V1) was not targeted and a different video track was targeting in the timeline.
I made a test project and a new multicam source sequence and a new sequence from it.
Multicam source sequence opened in the time line
New sequence from the multicam clip
So far that's normal. Note the multicam layer is targeted by default (the blue V1).
Sequence with multicam and another video layer targeted
The multicam view works as expected. Any other video layers can also be targeted as long as the multicam layer (V1) is still targeted.
Sequence with no video layer targeted
If the multicam layer is untargeted and no other video layer is targeted the multicam view still works as expected.
Sequence with non-multicam video layer targeted
If the multicam layer (V1) is untargeted and a different video layer is targeted the multicam view no longer works as expected.
To fix, just target the multicam video layer again.
It's that, EXACTLY.
Not a bug:
To see all cameras on the multi camera option, you have to select the video layer where the multi-camera file is actually in.
So you have to select that V1 at the left. If you have selected V2, for example (in this case) you would only see one camera.
This is the answer to the question! Great work guys. Thank you!
I cannot believe this had such a easy solution! OMG!
This was exactly my issue. I had more than one video line selected. If my multicam footage was on v3 then only v3 should be selected. If there was more than one, then non of my cams showed during the multi cam editing process.
ive tried so many ways, so many nestings, subsequencing...and to think multicamming wasn't anywhere near as finnicky last time....i think i almost got it once, now i think i'll likely need to re-edit the whole thing, as one camera only took segments.....
Thank You, this did resolve the problem
The issue is obscure, because I had the multicam layer targeted as were several others, and I have old school thinking of this layer is active. So in my case I had V1, V2, V3, V4 targeted and it was not until I found this thread and TURNED OFF V2, V3, V4 that multi cam worked as expected. Not intuitive.
I had the same problem. Simply targeting the correct video track, as David Kettle indicated, fixed my problem.
This saved me hours of trying to figure this out! Thanks you!!
Thanx a lot for posting this - it really solved my same problem 🙂
wow. honestly, this is my FIRST time posting a thank you after reading a soultion. often times we comment on the unsolved but rarely confirm when the way has been found. THANK YOU, thank you, thank you. this was wonderful, detailed, and came just in time to save my ass. truly, thanks again.
