Need help with multiclip

Update:11-30Source: network consolidation
Not sure what I am doing wrong.  Sometimes multiclip editing works almost perfectly, as it did today  Only dropped out of multiclip mode a couple times, but that may be normal operation after it has deposited a certain number of markers in the timeline.  Most of the time, it is very balky.  Sometimes I have no audio.  Most times though, clicking on a frame deposits a marker, but I don't see the switch--have to be sure and remember which source I chose last.  Often it may start working, but then drops out right away.  I have sometimes been able to fix the problems by restarting the multiclip several times.  Once in a while I have to restart Final Cut or even reboot the system. 
As far as I know all the settings are correct:  Open sync, multiclip playback enabled.  Is there something I am missing?

What codec is the footage? What drive is it stored on? Connected how?

    This question has been asked before, but I'll reiterate it. If the support doesn't exist, hopefully apple dev will take it into consideration. I shoot a lot of weddings and events. FCP's 5.0.x multiclip feature has been a lifesaver. I know the short

    I've only just taken delivery of my first ever mac (only ever used PC) with FCP, and I'm loving it already! Done lots of reading and viewing of video etc etc, and it's not as daunting as I thought it might be. I have one question the books don't seem

  • A BUG in FCP 7: Multiclip Markers slip when copied from project to project Update:10-11

    Alas, not all things are great with multiclip markers in FCP 7. We are shooting multicam on a show with dual system sound. Individual camera angles are synced to the production sound (broadcast .wav) and merged to create new master clips that use the

    I was editing a multiclip in the multi camera monitor, and its all went fine. But back in the sequence, however, I see that the multiclip is slashed out. There are grey slashes running through the duration of the clip, and I see NO video upon playbac

  • Multiclip sync issues - resolved??? Update:10-11

    Searching through the threads here I've seen a few different posts regarding the loss of sync in multiclips when moving media files around. Unfortunately all of the threads are locked and can't be posted to. None of them have been answered! I've just
