I'm cutting a 6 camera multicam sequence in CC 2017. When I add b roll on the track above, the multicam display in the Program Monitor disappears and is replaced by a double image of whatever was the last angle in the sequence I chose. Itnever returns to the multicam format. Very difficult to cut this way if I want to use cutaways. Any suggestions on how to remedy this?
The multicam viewer always shows clips from the lowest active track. If you have track 1 and track 2 active, with multicam elements on track 1, then when you add B-roll (which I assume is not part of a multicam source ) on track 2 the Multicam viewer (left side of the double image screen) should continue to show whatever was placed on track 1, while the Sequence viewer (right side of the screen) will show the B-roll cut in as you intended.
When laying in single source B-roll it's often better to disable the multicam viewer (I believe the toggle for that is shift-0 ).
