Multi Channel Audio in Nested Timelines / Compound Clips

PostTue Feb 23, 2021 8:46 pm


I have a question, maybe some one can help me with.

When I use a multicam timeline / Compound Clip / Nested Timeline with multi channel audio in it in another timeline (as a scene from a longer movie) - I only hear the first stereo channel of the timeline - while I need to hear the stereo output of all the tracks in the two tracks of the nested timeline.
The Track is set to Adaptive 10 as well as the nested timeline and the parent timeline.

The manual says:
.......In this sense, the audio of the nested timeline can be considered to be a submix that outputs its resulting audio to the audio track it’s edited onto. For more information about Buses and audio mixing in general, see
Part 12, “Fairlight.”
Seite 687 Manual Davinci 16

I do not get a submix of the entire timeline but only the first two channels.
Be it in Multicam Clips, Compound Clips o nested Timelines.

Am I missing something or is this a bug?
