I'm relatively new to Premiere CC, and very new to multi-cam editing. Half an hour ago the "multi-camera" view disappeared. That's the view that shows my 2 camera angles, side by side, and one of them is bordered in yellow. It should be to the left of my "composite" image on the top-right, but now there's just a black rectangle.

The footage I'm editing IS a multi-camera sequence. I DO have "Multi-Camera" selected as the view.

So any ideas how I get it back?

Never mind, I figured it out. Look at the timeline in the picture in my original question. Next to the multi-camera track, the "V1" is not selected. I selected that, and the multi-camera view came back. (I thought the "V1" just indicated which track a clip would be pasted to! Guess not.)

The video track "selection" applies not only to what's being used for multicam, but almost everything, including (most notably) what clips get split when you hit Ctrl + K and, as you already mentioned, where a clip gets pasted after copying. The same is true for the audio clip selection. – John Barton Aug 13 '14 at 12:28
That's really good to know! Thanks! – BrettFromLA Aug 13 '14 at 18:48
