I set up my 5-angle multiclip, but can't get it to switch audio properly in the Viewer. Multiclip Active Tracks is set to Video + Audio. I synched them using Aux Timecode and they all look great and sound great.

Problem: When I switch to number 2 angle the audio is in slow motion and from a different source than the clip that is playing. The audio on the other 4 angles sounds fine. It's weird.

Problem 2: I can't get my video and audio to switch independently. Shift 1-5 shifts both. 1-5 shifts both.

I can't get my job going until these bugs are worked out. Is it corrupted?

If I open up Motion, there is a speed change taking place in the Time Remap section for the angle in question. How did this happen? I only changed the AUX 1

Sounds like a corruption - can you rebuild the multi in a new test project?

I tried rebuilding it in the same project, but not a new one. I'll try it. I was planning on doing an upgrade to 6.0 tomorrow. Otherwise I'd be trashing preferences now.

There's a multiclip setting called Audio Follows Video somewhere in there. Has this been enabled?

Yes this has been enabled the whole time. I still can't figure out why I'm getting slow motion audio on only angle #2. The video on angle2 is normal speed. All other angles play just fine and are all in sync.

When have Angle 2 frame selected and open up the Motion tab. The speed is 50.12% in the Time Remap section. Under Edit > Item Properties > Timing tab > Speed, all the tracks are 100% except angle 2 which is 50%

But if I change the number to 100% in Time Remap, it has no effect on Angle2 audio. It still plays at half speed. ???

I'm going to rebuild the multi in a new project this afternoon as suggested by Jude. Wish me luck. Thanks.

I created a new project and rebuilt the multi fresh. It worked!! Must have been a corruption. Makes me nervous. Never had anything like this happen before. But then again, this is the first time I've used more than three angles in the multiclip.

Thanks for the suggestion Jude.
