Multicam issue/question

I am experimenting with the first of 14 video episodes I'm producing. I'm using four cameras greenscreened.

I'm wanting to reduce the processing load on the computer and thought that I would do my multicam selections first, then re-expand the four tracks from the multicam track and apply the green screen at the track level to the various takes.

So...I did my multicam selections and while doing that also played around with zooming in track motion on each of the four clips.

After I had backed out of the multicam editing and re expanded the tracks, I though I would just see if I could go back to the multicam track and was warned when I tried this that any track motion etc would be lost if I proceeded.

Hmmmmm...

I guess there is no real need for me to 'go back' to the multicam track, rather just proceed with the expanded tracks. But I would be interested to know if there is any way back that retains track motion etc.

No there is not. This is because if you push all the tracks back down to a single track, which track motion do you keep?
