Angle Viewer / Angle Editor Confusion with monitoring angles.
on Apr 12, 2013 at 2:49:30 am

If I jump into my angle editor and set a monitoring angle, the new angle doesn't correspond with the timeline clip and my angle viewer, and visa versa..

If I change the monitoring angle in my angle editor doesn't it make sence for it to also change once I go back to my multicam timeline clip??

Is this a bug ?

The monitoring angle isn't for editing, it is for working in the angel editor. See here:

However, changing the monitoring angle in the angle editor will only effect new or unedited instances of the multiclip.

If you want to switch angels use the info pain of the inspector (set it to general) or right click on a clip and change the active audio or active video angle.

This is all due to the infamous "metadata flow" in X. It starts on import and at every stage, new metadata is added to existing metadata and carried along. So knowing whether you're applying changes "upstream" or "downstream" of an asset can have an impact.

"right click on a clip and change the active audio or active video angle."

Here's a different question along the same lines...

How do you make a global change to your active audio for an entire project? I have over a thousand cuts and I only cut the video, the audio track stayed constant. But after editing the entire show (two one-hour multicam clips) I'm realizing the audio is corrupt and that I need to make a global change to another audio angle.

Just can't figure out how. Using FCPX. Thanks! :)

Super easy. Just select all your clips you want to change and then in the inspector change the active audio angle.

As was mentioned, the monitoring angle is just for choosing which track is visible/audible while you're working in the angle editor. The angle editor is where you "prepare" your angles. For example, if you need to manually add and sync a new angle to your mulitcam clip, you will be "working in the angle editor". When starting a multicam edit, I like to make global changes from within the angle editor. Like color correcting each scene and leveling audio. Then when I go back to the timeline to do the angle switching etc, everything looks and sounds good already. You can blade and add effects and adjust audio levels as necessary all in the angle editor, getting your clips to a good starting point. It is especially useful if you have already done sone editing in the timeline, but then realize you want to make a global change to one of the angles.
