If they have common timecode, why not use group or multigroup? Or are you using autosequence to manually set sync references first? There is no function that takes a sequence such as this and creates a group/multigroup although it would be possible to engineer such a solution and is a great feature request that has come up many times before.

Hi Michael,
yes my editor assistant make a auto sequence to manually set sync references firs for assemble all shooting daily.
They shooting sometimes all together 4 camera or record and stop camera during the take, and then rec another time, result : many segment in timeline and gap.

would be very helpful as a function of group from sequence,
so no hopes?

regard

In the past I have created a dummy clip that I logged that encompassed the full range of clips I wanted to have in a single group clip, then included that when grouping based on common timecode. This way there is always a camera active while the other can be going on and off. Then I don't display that once I set up the group. Maybe that will work for you?

Sound like reality TV multi grouping. This is the basis by which most AEs I know would group that.

However, that method in conjunction with this pages suggestion on add edits will probably be your best bet. At least it's how I do it.
