Multicam angle viewer
on May 29, 2014 at 11:32:43 am

Bit of a niggle issue in multi cam.

Every now and then even with a two camera multi cam project the little windows do not display the full frame that is displayed in the "canvas" (sorry what is the main biker called again?)

Workaround is to change view to 4 angles until same thing happens and then switch back to 2 angles. Etc. Etc.

As you can imagine it is mildly tedious.

I've tried trashing prefs ... didn't make any difference.

I think I had this issue back with older version and I am working in proxy so not quite sure what the problem is. Working on quite an old iMac could be the issue? No other performance issues though.

Cropped images. Intermittent "buggy" problem. Sometimes it doesn't happen. Then sometimes it happens all the time.

Can you post a grab when it does happen?

Sure. It hasn't happened today. Yesterday all the time! Thanks.

I've had this happen through some combination of the following:

Mixed resolution source files
Image scaling set to "none"
Switching the resolution of the multicam after it's made

Are you mixing resolutions?

No I'm not mixing resolutions but I am switching to View Proxy having created the multicam clip and dropped it into a project. I have created proxy files on Import. Hmmm. Wonder of thats it? Trouble is it does not much like the original files and I have not created Optimised Media on import but I have inadvertently been creating Optimised Media by leaving box checked in prefs (thanks Jeremy)

When you say "Image Scaling" what do you mean exactly please? I usually have mine set to "Fit"in the canvas/viewer window...no option for none. Do you mean something else I wonder?

Many thanks

James

Sorry, I meant to say Spatial Conform. But if you aren't mixing resolutions then sounds like you're having a different problem.

It looks to me like you have the clip scaled up in the angle editor, and then scaled back down in the timeline. Or something like that.

Exactly right Jeremy that's exactly the problem although I am not doing anything to make it happen (knowingly anyway). When I switch to four angle view it sorts itself out ...for a while then I switch back to 2 angle and it's alright again and displays full image. This scaling up/cropping happens all on its own. I'm not even sure it's possible to scale the clip up in the angle viewer? is it?

cheers

James

James... I've been having this problem as well. I think I may have switched projects, shut down FCP and reopened it, and done some other dancing around to finally get the images back to where they should be.

It doesn't seem to affect the image in the timeline, it's just the multi cam window.

It sure is annoying.

That's weird. I'm working on a 3 angle multicam now and I haven't seen the problem.

You can transform clips in the angle editor separate from the timeline.

What size is your multiclip, what size is your timeline?

Are you using proxy media?

I've had it a while even in older version (pre 10.1). Always work in Proxy. Small clip 3 to 4 mins but this does not seem to be the difference.

Weird.

Manageable.

A bit annoying though!

I need a new mac.

Thanks Jeremy I have been away and replying in the wrong order.

Yup I know it looks like that but I haven't done that. It must be triggered by something in my system Perhaps not enough processing power?

8GB Ram 2.8ghz i7 Imac.

It is getting a bit old but times are tight.

Possible solution
on Jun 6, 2014 at 6:59:57 am

I have a solution!
The problem only occurs when I drop the 1080 multi cam clip into a 720 project and attempt to edit in that format. Why do I do this? Well I suppose it's because I have become accustomed to creating 720 masters. I have no idea why I started doing this but think it' because for while everything I did was being uploaded to Vimeo and I read they preferred 720 HD to 1080. The I just got in the habit.
And I guess it makes sense that if I am not running a mac with huge processing power it may struggle a bit.
