Hello, fellow video editors.
I am one of the few editors who have been using Vegas Pro for over 15 years.
I have a suggestion to improve multi-camera editing mode, (Shift + Ctrl + D)
Every year I need to shoot and edit dance school shows with up to 6 cameras. My problem is how Vegas Pro displays the images in MultiCam mode. It displays space for 9 cameras in a project that has only 5 cameras. There are 4 camera spaces on black screen.
My suggestion is that the program allows the user to define how they want to view the cameras in MultiCam mode. I would like to choose the number of rows and columns on the screen in multi-camera mode. For example, if I edit showing 5 cameras or 6, I could choose to show them in 2 rows and 3 columns. If I'm editing with 8 cameras, I could choose to show 2 lines and 4 columns.
There is no reason for Vegas Pro to display 3 lines and 3 columns for only 5 or 6 cameras. It wastes valuable screen space, which could be best used to display each camera window in a larger size.
Regardless of aspect ratio, in MultiCam mode (Shift + Ctrl + D) I could edit with maximized video preview, to use the full width of my monitor screen. Please see the attached screens and understand what I want.
