After several days of editing a project using multiclips (only 2 angles), the Viewer suddenly stop showing the multiple angles, and now only shows a full screen of the active angle.  I have checked all my setting, and they seem to be correct, but as soon as I switch the Viewer's Playback Sync to Open, the Viewer immediatly switches to full screen whatever I have set for the background..



I double click the multiclip in the sequence and it is loaded into the Viewer

The Playback Sync defaults to Sync Off


I switch Playback Sync to Open and the Viewer immediately switches to Full Screen Background color.

I click on the sequence and start playback, and the Viewer displays the active angle in Full Screen, and follows the timeline.

As soon as I stop playback of the sequence, the Viewer goes back to displaying full screen background (black, white or checkerboard if set)
I have verified the Multiclip Playback is set in the sequences RT options, and sequences that I had previously completed editing, are also now behaving this way.
I have also quit and restarted FCP6 without any affect.
If anyone can help me get the Multiclip playback working again, it would be greately appreciated.
