Two issues I have questions regarding multiclips:

1) I filmed an event with two cameras (DVX100B's, so the timecode is in sync). Both cameras used two tapes so when I imported I have a few clips from each camera. I want to be able to edit as a multiclip. Is there a way to combine the clips from one camera into one large clip so that I only have two clips for the multiclip (one from each camera)?

2) Out of my 2 cameras, I got 4 channels of audio. I want all 4 channels in the timeline in their entirety and then I will cut back and forth from 1 camera's video to the other. How do I go about doing this?

Thanks for any suggestions.

Don't know. What I would do in this case is to make a multiclip for each of the corresponding tapes from the 2 cameras. But you already knew that, right? Since you said that your timecode was sync'd it shouldn't be too much of a problem to do this little task.

Put your clips into the timeline and sync them just like the old days before multiclips. Then take your multiclips and frame match them to the tracks already in the timeline. Put the multiclips above the other clips. Mute the multiclip audio and you'll have your 4 audio tracks always active while still using the multicllip feature.
