I have a dance video shot live, and another video shot as a dance film with multiple clips. The second was filmed without music. To synchronize the audio with the video, I need to play both videos simultaneously, so I can get the multi-clip video to match the timing of the live video. (In the multi-clip video, I need to speed up most clips, by different percents.) (Changing the speed of the audio is not an option.)
In MultiCamera editing, with both video layers on the same track, I can see the two videos playing side-by-side in the preview monitor, but I can't splice and stretch just one video, can I? If I cut a tail off one clip, the live video would also be cut, so it could no longer function as my chronometer / baseline for proper timing. (I don't care if the live video gets cut up in the editing timeline - it won't affect the source video. )
Can I use the trimmer for one and the preview monitor for another, and have them play simultaneously? I don't think so.
Can I get what I want by using the "Take" command (right click on a clip, select "Take")? I don't think so.
Any other workarounds?
(This is a different project than the one I was asking about yesterday - don't think the questions are interrelated, although I expect answers to the other questions would help here too. This q is higher priority now.)

You can use Track Motion to make a Picture-in-Picture from one of the clips. That will allow you to see both at the same time so that you can line the action up. Then when you are done, just remove the Track Motion from the Track and you should have everything looking normal.
