    Steve,
    Thanks for that.

    I thought multi cam was for multi cam editing, but now that I know it is just for quick switching, (rather than full blown editing) then I can work round that, like I have been doing.

    I just thought I was missing something.......

    well I am and that's edius editing experience.

    What I'm doing is editing some school presentations, but there is time between each one where the teams swap over that just needs removing from both cams, rather than switching from one to the other.

    Mind you this multi cam and the editing is much quicker and easier than I am used to with my old premiere :)

    I've just had an email from a UK distributor, saying they are running a days demoing of 4.5. I think a few hours travelling and a few hours watching experts use edius will do me the world of good... keep me out of your hair for a day as well :)

      On your undo request for Multicam mode, there's a feature request for that in the feature request area.

      Yes, Multicam mode is for assembling your shot selections. The intent is that you Compress to single track and go back to normal mode for "regular" editing.

        Yes Graham. Brandon just gave the final piece of advice.
        Compressing to a track after "switching" makes it much easier to edit out pieces that you don't want.
        It will make the work flow much easier.

          Thanks all.

          I haven't tried compressing to single track yet.

          If I do that and find a cut is too early, have I then lost the chance to lengthen it by a few frames?

            When you say clicking on the video do you mean the preview in the REC window?

            I select the video with the mouse by selecting the monitor of the video I want in the REC window... works every time! :)

              As long as you leave the original camera tracks intact, you can simply delete the "compressed" track, adjust the cut, then "compress" to a new track again.

              It's kind of up to you how you want to manage things. I like to hide the original camera tracks so I can mess with them later. I do want a way to "hide" tracks in the GUI as well, but that could get confusing.

                I'm going to throw a wrench in the works now. Is there an easy way to apply dissolves to certain clips and not others. I'm editing in multicam and cutting up a dance recital and need to dissolve some numbers while others are just fine with cuts only.
                My problem is that when i gang select multiple clips to global add 1 sec. cross dissolves it defaults to the center of the cut points which causes an undesirable effect, in other words you get 15 frames of black and 15 frames of the dissolve due to the fact that multicam deselects the clip you're cutting from, it's like muting the video track or setting opacity to o%. I need to be able to start on the cut when dissolving to the lower track and end on the cut when dissolving to the top track, essentially adding frames to the beginning and end of the clips on the top track. It also deletes the cut points when applying a transition.

                  [quote=skier-hughes;6668]Ok sorted the last one.


                  When I cut out a portion of the video, the last clip no longer is the selected one in the main window.

                  The way that works for me is to go to the beginning of the undesirable section hit shift+C, go to the end of the undesirable section hit shift+C, delete that whole chunk, butt the remaining chunk against the previous good clips and the last camera angle you selected should still be selected. This can be done while still in multicam mode.
                  Hope that works for ya.

                    After you have finish editing multicam, you want to compress to single track, make sure your "extended clip when applying transition" is check, then highlight all the clips that you want the dissolve and drag a dissolve to it, those that you don't want to dissolve then leave them alone.

                        I found a solution to the dissolve problem. Since there is no way to change the default position of a transition, (will check / add to the wish list) I selected the top video track and lower track and then applied the dissolve to the selected tracks which gives the appropriate amount of overlap needed to avoid the 15 frames of black.

                          or enable all the clips on the lower track and dissolve only the top track which looks better.

                            Position cursor on cut point and press 0 (zero)

                            I've also found pressing zero also cuts the tracks without changing the view.

                            Now my next problem, which I hope to solve for you all shortly is.........

                            When I cut out a portion of the video, the last clip no longer is the selected one in the main window.

                            Say I have V1 in main window, V1 is selected and highlighted.
                            I make cuts and chop out the next portion of video, but when I review the video,
                            V1 is still highlighted, but V2 is playing in the main window????

                            I believe this is a bug. I just work around it as I don't think anyone else either notices this or agreems with me.
