Why are you manually syncing the videos to the master audio in part 1? One of the main reasons I bought the upgrade to MS14 was the stated feature that it can automatically sync the videos. I had hoped to see explained in your tutorial.

Great tutorials, thanks.
I never used this feature and I am sure I will find it useful.
One thing though, it is much more intuitive to bring the video and the audio onto the timeline together, find your sync point and then line up the audio waveforms.
You can then of course delete the audio you tracks you don't need, which is an extra step, but is still quicker and more precise than the method shown here.

Any response to this question?

I agree that the sync of multiple sources using the audio matching is fiddly - but surprisingly effective.
When you can afford it, try Cyberlink PowerDirector (among others) if you need this - and it has MultiCam editing, probably more flexible too than Vegas. It has other niggles that still make me stick with Vegas - but you really do get lots more good stuff than in Vegas. If you can hack it - use both (rendering one to edit in the other).

I use Pinnacle Studio 21 Ultimate for multicam work. It will create proxies which makes switching between cameras painless. It can automatically add cross dissolves. With MC editor, you can go back and move things around, add fx, etc... really powerful. Sync 2 audio and 6 cameras and it works great.
