A friend is trying to build a multicam clip in FCPX but the result is weird.

Instead of being vertical, both cameras appear in a in horizontal order in the (multi cam)timeline.


Anyone has seen this before?




He uses an MBP and the latest trialversion of FCPX.

    Your friend may not have assigned camera angle and/or camera names to the clips being synced.

    It is all in the Mutlicam setup window.  You need to assign each clip a Camera Angle name.  Go to the Inspector, Video section, and use the bottom left menu to change the Metadata View to General View.  You'll see the Camera Angle field you can fill out.


    If using the Automatic settings, this will put them each in their own Multclip Channel.

    If doing it manually, you want to set "Angle Assembly" to "Camara Angle".


    Here is what each of the manual settings do.


    Angle Assembly - which clips go to which angles (tracks).

    Angle Clip Ordering - if more than one clip goes to a specific angle (track), what order do they go in.

    Angle Syncronization - how do all clips in all angles get sync'ed together.
