I use multiples in many ways. Often it’s to sync up two camera views and then I cut between the two lines. Also, you can have two different size images or video on the screen at once, or have a picture fly in over a video. I’ve also used one video inside another for news cast type sets where the newscaster looks at a TV with some footage rolling. When you brand a logo to the video it always requires another line. When you add sound effects you need separate lines of audio. One a recent documentary I had 9 lines of audio to incorporate all the sounds of a hotel fire at night. I don’t usually use more than 2 lines of HDV but can handle 3 without much computer slow down.
