With four cameras in my Multicam on the Timeline, only one camera shows in the Program Window.

When I double click on the clip in the Sequence, it shows all four cameras in the Source Window.

I tried clicking on the Wrench to Toggle to Multicam and also clicking on the Toggle Button below window and the Shift-0 keys.

If I open a new project, it works fine, but I am in the middle of a project and have to copy and paste from a previous sequence.

Appreciate any help on this.

You didn't say which version your were using, but in CS6 the program monitor will only ever show the selected camera. To see all the cameras in your multi-camera sequence your need to use the multi-camera monitor which is off the 'Window' menu item. This is a third monitor window!

Thanks Delcan,
But, I have been using the multicam on this Premiere Pro CC for the past two weeks with the multicam showing in the right window.
As a matter of fact, when I try to put an old multicam clip on the old sequence, it fails to show.

So, either something got changed in my settings that I thought someone would know about, or the current project is corrupted somehow.

As I stated, it works in a new project, but with only being able to open one project at a time, I can't copy and paste from one sequence to another.

I found the answer!

Haven't understood the significance of the Blue Highlighted V1, V2 etc., but did find out just now that the Video Track must be highlighted for the multicam to show.

Sad thing is that I discovered that a week ago, but...it take time for these things to sink in. So, after 4 hours of messing with it, I probably will remember the next time.

Glad you have it sorted. I read your original post a little too quick and missed the fact you had already had the Multicam monitor up!. I think it works a bit differently in CS6 as I don't have to have the tracks highlighted to be in the multicam monitor.
