I would really try to avoid as much effects as much as possible and use fading pretty sparingly.  It'll give the video a little more cleaner look and a little more professional looking. 

I did these a couple of years ago just using enveloping on vegas

These days I'm using Final Cut, but the I think the basics are pretty similar for most multicam editors

oh make sure your videos are in sync all the way.  one time i forgot to check and it end up one of the angles had a couple of dropped frames, making the back end out of sync.

i'm still having issues colour correcting for angles that are vastly different, but thats a whole different problem.

I've had issues with color being drastically different when I used auto white balance.  If you don't already use manual white balance you should.  You can set the cameras next to each other in one spot and get it set and most cameras hold those settings until you put it back in auto or change it.

actually the problem is trying to match a 3ccd cam footage with a 1ccd cam.  or at least try to get it somewhat close.

If your using the sony vx2000/2100 3ccd i can tell you that your footage will be oversaturated look in the vectorscope and you'll see colors in the illegal area's.Just desaturate them to match all cams in the vectorscope.If your using different brands Panasonic will usually be always in the legal area,and Sony oversaturated,Canon will look very different and have a more yellowish cast.Also if some cams are in auto mode and some in manual it will be even harder to match...automatic mode is useless.But the vectorscope is your best friend.Here's a link to some good advice on color correcting and matching.
