I’ve recently changed from 4x27" monitors to a 55" 4k display that I’m virtually splitting with Display Fusion Pro. It’s proved to be a very effective solution when presenting my work to clients when I score to picture. I also fell in love with 3840 pixels wide for the mixer and the project window without bezels.
Here comes the problem, no matter what codec or container I use, the videos played with Cubase’s video engine are stuttering pretty bad in full screen mode. I’ve even bought the Avid’s Video Decoder license and nothing seems to solve the stuttering. I can see the hard-coded time-code jerk around. It runs smooth when I stretch the video box to almost full screen but as soon as I double click and go full screen, I get the stutter. I should mention that I never had an issue with my 4 physical monitors. It must have something to do with fully opening Cubase’s Video Player to a 4k display.
I’m working with a pretty powerful master/slave configuration along an Nvidia GTX 1060 6gb. I’m nowhere near overloading my system. I have tried a lot of different codecs and containers along with different resolution with no success.
Does anybody have any suggestions?
Or at least if someone from Steinberg takes note of the issue so maybe this could be solved in a future release.
