For what it's worth I would expect trimmed archive of a Multi- camera clip to keep only the active angles/shots plus handles. I guess this would apply to the audio angles too. So we'd end up with a multicam clip with an overlapping checker-board layout.

I wouldn't mind if the archive even flattened the Multicam video to a single storyline, attaching active audio below ? Each edit in the storyline would have the handle value either side for trimming.

I just made a quick test on Avid MediaComposer v8.X: When you consolidate a sequence with multicam clips inside, it consolidates all the angles inside the multicam, trimming each clip to the used+handles duration.

On my particular use, I want to use Worx4X to send FCPX projects to DaVinci for color grading, so I only need the active angle and the app to finalize synchronized clips (which don't translate to Davinci Resolve).

So, for me a checkbox to select all angles or active angle would be great.

From my point of view, active angle would be fine as my use of your software is for archiving. That said, a toggle switch between complete clip (as it is now) and active angle would be the handy. Don't know if I'd want individual Multicam clips for every cut.

Trimming multicam clips is being looked at with a view to implementing it in a future release. it would be useful to know how users would like this to work though. For example would you want just the active angle in the trimmed clip or all angles? If you have any other comments or suggestions for how multicam clips should be handled they would be helpful.

I'm doing reality television shows and hours long multicam clips get down to less than 10 minutes. Currently I'm editing and color grading in the same Mac with FCPX, my idea is to buy a new one and use it only for color grading with DaVinci Resolve so I can keep editing while the colorist does the grading. I wanted to use Workx4X to trim the finished show to an empty SSD drive, export an FCPXML and handle the drive with the media to the colorist. I don't own the app yet, but not trimming multicams when the work I do is 90% multicam won't be very useful for me. I wish you could add this feature as soon as possible.

Hi,

Just got a copy for archiving final cuts. Looks like it will save a lot of space. Having the ability to trim MultiCam clips down would be very handy as most of the time I've used MC just to sync audio with clips. For me, personally, trimming MC clips down to the length of those in the project file (plus handles) would be preferable over the entire clips. I would imagine this creating MC clips for each part, probably - but as I use for archiving purposes that's not too much of an issue from my perspective. Of course, a tick box option so we can decide whether to have them trimmed or not would be even more useful.

Currently MultiCam clips are copied in their entirety, media files which are longer than these clips will be trimmed to the length of the original MultiCam clip.

This is detailed on the Worx4 X page in the app store ( itunes.apple.com/us/app/worx4-x/id1195903030 )

If anyone has a preference or thoughts for how we should cope with Multicam clips, even if it is to leave the current functionality as is please add to this topic and we will review..

Yours Sincerely and many thanks.

James
