Hi,

 

Sometimes the audio waveform just does not show up even thoug there is audio...

I tried selcting the tracks, muting, unmuting, nothing seems to work. How to fix?

Thank you so much it worked (no for every clips for some reasons but for 99% of them)

Mine does that too. 'Render Audio' brings it back until the next restart of PP. It's not the most informative screenshot. I take it that really tall track is the MCam audio. I gave up trying to fix it.

If you add any keyframe to any audio clip inside of your multicam sequence, the waveform will just disappear in your main sequence, that's why I never do that.

Besides rendering audio as Phillip suggested you may find right-click on audio and choosing Multi-camera > flatten to be useful

Also, if you apply any audio effect to any clip in your multicam sequence, the waveform will just disappear in your main sequence, so you may apply those effects in your main timeline to avoid the problem

You're welcome! My advice is: Don't let the waveform disappear (don't add any levels keyframes or apply effects to audio clips inside of your Multicam sequence). It's much easier to avoid the problem in the first place than trying to find ways to solve it later.
