  2. Once all of your cameras are laid out across tracks, synchronized, and ordered to your satisfaction, select the tracks from which you want to create a multicamera track (or press Ctrl+A to select all tracks).

  3. From the Tools menu, choose Multicamera, and choose Create Multicamera Track from the submenu. builds a set of tracks containing a series of events, with takes representing each of the cameras.

    A new event is created for each time a camera was started and stopped, as well as empty “(no camera)” takes for video events where cameras were missing.
