Hi All,

I'm trying to figure out how to apply the same audio track to seven different video sequences.

Before my question, here's some background ...
My band is moving into the realm of using multiple screens for our live shows. We will be mapping at least seven videos on seven different screens.

For our shows opening sequence, seven different videos will all share the same audio.

Considering that, my thought was to use one FCP project, with seven sequences (one for each video for each screen), and render each sequence to separate videos along with the master audio.

The seven rendered videos will then used be in a video mapping software during the live shows.

My question ...
Is there a way to have seven FCP6 sequences share a single, master audio track that can be played while editing each, individual sequence?

Maybe I'm way off here and there's a better way to accomplish what I am trying to do (seven videos with the same audio track). I am self-taught and still learning about FCP6.

Thanks,
Chris

Sequences are independent of each other. Simply drop the master audio file into each Sequence. It's pretty easy. As long as each Sequence has the same video frame rate and audio sample rate settings, just drop that one audio file into each Sequence. Export each sequence as a QT file. Done.

Otherwise, I'd just do video without audio, and sync each of the 7 monitors to the same audio playback source, and have that play your master audio file. That has nothing to do with FCP 7 sequences. That's just a hardware configuration issue between the monitors and some audio playback device.

If you want to get more information about this, then I recommend video mapping toolkits! Also they have a lot of tutorials!
