Switching And Cutting Audio And Video In Multiclips

Earlier, we discussed how to create multiclips and how to insert new angles after you have created the multiclip. Another powerful feature in Final Cut Pro's multiclip functionality is the ability to Cut (make an edit) or switch (without making an edit) between angles while swapping various audio and video angles. For example, while you have the side angle of the band walking on to the stage as your active piece of video, you can use the audio from a completely separate angle that has commentary. Here are a few things to keep in mind when you are playing audio and video independently!

- Due to linking relationships, interaction between audio and video assets depend upon if the multiclip in the viewer was open from the timeline or the browser.

- If the content in the viewer came from the browser, audio and video are locked and all active audio assets will have to come from the same angle. You can switch between audio and video angles, but lets say you wanted to use the audio in clip 3 while the video in clip 1 was active, all audio for every angle would then change to what was playing in clip 1.

- If it is a sequence multiclip in the viewer, you can change audio and video items independently.
