    Avid MC 8.6.5 multicam problem with 2 multicam tracks.

    Hi,

    in MC 8.6.5, I have in the timeline 2 tracks, each one with 8 cameras multicam (same show but 1 track = live and the other = rehearsal) 

    If I switch the viewer on the top track, V2, the multicam viewer continue to show the v1 multicam.

     

    There is no problem if I open the project on a 8.6.1 version (PC and MAC tested)

    Solved by uninstall 8.6.5 and back to 8.6.1. The editor can work now.

     

    (Problem tested on a "old" MacPro, confirmed on a PC)

    William.

    Re: Avid MC 8.6.5 multicam problem with 2 multicam tracks.

    Based on other discussions in the forum, I think you will find that the way you describe multicam workin in 8.6.5 is how Avid believes it should.

    And the way it was working in some past versions was a defect (bug).

    Not 100% sure of this but that was what I got from the digging around.

    Re: Avid MC 8.6.5 multicam problem with 2 multicam tracks.

    Hi Marianna !

     

    Does it mean that in Avid MC we can have "only" 1 multicam track ? We do a lot of music shows and documentaries here in Europe for years and our editors used this fonction (not really a "bug" for me !) :

    1 "base" multicam track with the good cameras timecode synced 

    1 or more tracks with 2nd take (or rehearsal)

    and sometimes one more with wings or making-of....

    so convenient !

    And I don't know how to do it differently...

    but let see what your techs will say :-)

     

    And next week I have a 18 cameras show to edit : what is your recommended method ? (I mean with the tracks, no problem for us here with transcode or proxies (DnxHR LB we use a lot) as we have a very fast 12 drives server)

     

    Regards,

    William

    I won't speak for Marianna, but what you describe is how I understand the intent.

    But I am in agreement with you that this is not the best method.  I was happy when the "bug" showed up.  Very useful.

    Another bug that showed up for a while then went away was having Avid automatically give up control of hardware IO (AJA / Blackmagic, etc) when you sent MC to the background.  This was a huge help when hopping back and forth to After Effects.  The recently fixed "correct" way screws me with great regularity by ticking off both After Effects and / or the Hardware IO software meaning I have to restart all aps and sometimes the whole system!!!  That really needs to change!!!

    But I digress ......  Big Smile

    Re: Avid MC 8.6.5 multicam problem with 2 multicam tracks.

    This has changed for 8.7 - you now have an option to either force Multicam to V1 or to the monitored track. Don't recall the name of the option. Or did I just dream that one?

    Hmmmmm.  You may be onto something.  Looked at What's New in 8.7 and found:

     

    Controlling the Track Shown in Split View 

    Need to test that.
