Premiere 2020 multicam view not showing source camera feeds

I have a ~1 hour multicam sequence, that I have ~85% of sequenced in a target timeline.  After my last edit, suddenly my source camera area (on the left) is showing only one camera, not the four that it should:

what it looks likewhat it looks like

[ It's like what happens when I manually drop in a clip onto the target sequence's timeline, outside the multic-camera sequence that provides the rest of the content.  When I do that, the side-by-side views change from "all the source cameras on the left, and the selected camera on the right" to "same camera on the left and on the right."  But in that circumstance, this behavior makes perfects sense, since the manually added clip is not sourced from the multicam sequence.  And in this case, it's happening on my entire target sequence's timeline, including the other 117 clips that came from the multicam sequence. ]

 

I have the display mode set to multicam:

display mode is set to multicamdisplay mode is set to multicam

And I checked the various clips on the target timeline, and all are set to "multicam >> enable".  I've toggled them to disable and back to enable, closed, rebooted, and re-opened - but no luck.

each clip on target timeline is set to enable multicameach clip on target timeline is set to enable multicam

 

No other projects are showing this problem; they properly show the multiple source cameras on the left.

 

I'm guessing that I butter-fingered some hotkey (I'm a sloppy typist) that changed a setting, but I can't figure out what.

I think I figured it out. Your clip is on layer v1 in the timeline but you have layer v2 active (you can tell by the color blue outlining v2). You just need to either move the nest to layer v2 or make v1 active by clicking it. Pretty sure I have some terminology wrong here but that's what worked for me.

Hi Guys, I'm having the same issue and I'm quite sure it depends on a bug. I'm currently working on a mac. I solved it just by moving the multicam clip on the upper video tracks. If the next one doesn't work, just push it to the next one until the multicam view will show up... Can the tech support say something on it, please?SCREENSHOT MULTICAM.jpg

This also just saved me so much time. 

Same problem as listed above. 

Very interested to know what the real solution is. Restarting has not worked for me at all. Just starting over completely...

dreimer79: You are correct.  My apologies to the community that I did not post the fix.  I forget when I eventually figured it out.  But it was some time later.  Anyway, to confirm: I can reproduce this "buggy" behavior in any project at will by deselecting video track 1.  This always loses the ability to the see the multitrak source videos.  And reselecting video track 1 always restores it.
