cubase 10.5 - menu entries missing (export video) issue (?)

Hello all:

we purchased v 10.5 precisely for the ability to export audio with video; however, the menu entry File -> Export -> Video seems absent.

I wonder if anyone else has ran into the same issue. Futhermore, I was speculating if this could be some sort of an older Cubase Defaults.xml / preferences cross-polination that keeps the new menu entry from appearing… (I did try importing a video into a project just to rule out the option that the menu entry only appears once a video file has been inserted into a session, to no success.)

Thank you.


It has been discussed here already. It seems, this happens at some (unsupported) Windows 7 or Windows 8 systems.

thank you. is W10 the only officially supported version of windows?


fair enough.

if anyone comes up with a workaround for now (that’s not upgrading the OS), it would be appreciated to know.

many thanks.

also windows 10 so is there a remedy???

On Windows 10, this menu entry should be present and it is present on my side. How did you install Windows 10? Did you upgrade or did you make a clean installation?

Could you try to reinstall Cubase, please? Make sure you:

  • Download the Full Installer.
  • Unpack the ZIP file and install from the unzipped folder.
  • Install from the setup.exe.
  • Install as administrator.
  • Install to the system © drive.
