i worked mainly on Avid but the editing is quite different when you have different sources for sound. We used to cheat when we had more than one source, because our spare mic allowed us to record three tracks (out of four possible). That means, in a crowd, that both cameras film the improvised action with ambiance while you have one mic going for the speech. So you do get a “main camera” and a 2nd camera, and that distinction makes it easier to edit.
