Replace clip with pre-comp or nested sequence or multi-cam?

I saw this question posted 4 years ago, but I didn't see an ideal solution.  In a nut-shell, an editor mistakenly edited an interview using the footage as both the video and audio.  The audio sounds fine (it was a line-in from the recorder), but I would like to use the Zoom recorder audio instead.

 

It's a single video clip (interview), but with multiple edits.  In After Effects world, I would "replace clip with pre-comp" and then in the pre-comp I would add in the 32bit WAV file.

Any tips or tricks in Premiere that would be faster than manually syncing each and every cut?

The solution we opted for was to create a timeline with the original video and new audio, export that as an HVEC mp4, then relink the original file with the new file.  Another option we found works is to bring the project into AE and then do the replace with pre-comp.  We're still able to then "export" to Premiere Pro and it works as expected- but it's clunky and the folder structure gets weird.  But it works.

Hi Stephen,

When you create your multicam, make sure its first frame matches the first frame of the video clip you're replacing.

  • Drag the multicam onto the clip in your timeline while holding down Shift+Option/Alt. This will replace the source of the clip but maintain the same in/out point.
  • You will need to do this for each instance of the clip in the timeline.
  • If the number of audio channels in your multicam does not match the audio channels of the clip you're replacing, use Match Frame (F) to load the multicam in the Source Monitor and Overwrite (.) to add the clip with the correct number of audio channels.


Hope this helps!

Cheers,
Paul

Thanks for your reply.  I'm not sure I understand, or we're talking about two different things.

The edit is done and a multi-cam sequence was never made.  I can make a multi-cam sequence, but I don't see any way to automatically replace the non-multi-cam with the multi-cam (which includes the additional WAV file).  I know I could match frame the non-multi-cam segments in the sequence to identify the timecode of the real video file, then manually open to multi-cam sequence in the source monitor to manually match the timecode to add in and out points to then drag down onto the timeline, but that's quite the ordeal if we have 20 edit points.  Does that make sense?

I suppose a clunky work-around would be to load it in AE, but then I doubt I can bring it back into Premiere Pro.

It's not more than an hour of work to match things up, but if there was a simple solution, I hate to waste time doing things the hard way 🙂
