I'm looking for a multicam settings and/or plugin to help with some multi cam footage.
So Google Hangouts (and probably more video conferencing software) has this feature that makes a specific person who is talking the focus video. I was wondering if there is something like that for Adobe? I want to create a multi cam sequence, but depending on what audio channel is doing the talking, switch to that channel.
So if i have 2 videos in multicam sequence, if the audio in video 1 starts to get past a certain threshold, switch to that camera angle, until video 2 meets that threshold (and vice versa)
OR- if something like that doesnt exist, can you point me in the direction of making plugins so i can try creating it myself.

An audio filter applied to a clip, could detect level changes.
There is no API for an über effect to watch the audio levels of N clips (in a multi-cam sequence), nor for programmatic control of which camera is active.
Are you saying that something like that is not possible? or just does not current exist. I'm down to learn how to do it myself, (or some tools to help )
There is no API, today or planned, that would support the functionality you've described.
Hmm, there's no API control for a multicam's active camera angles? That seems odd. Could you please log an official request for the API backlog?

No one's asked. Switching between cameras has heretofore relied on human input. Yes, I'll write it up.
The feature request is DVAPR-4207094, for anyone following along.
Would love to see this feature
I'm here because i've been looking for something like this that exists. This would be the most useful thing for so many people who create podcasts. The manual element can take up to 6 hours to do a 2 hour podcast. If a software could track the audio and switch cameras for you, podcasts could be done in 10 minutes. PLEASE ADD THIS OR HELP TO FIND A WAY FOR THIS TO WORK. Wow it would be one of the biggest time savers in video editing to date.
Chiming in to say that I too would love to see something like this.
(Not sure if this is the best way to upvote a feature request)
PLEASE ADD THIS FEATURE
