Big +1 from me.
As a full time TV composer I had waited for this for ages but this implementation doesn’t make sense. I rarely get HD versions of shows to work on. With early stage animation they’re very low res. Why on earth would I want to have those re-encoded to 1080p or to have such a massive file? Most of the time I don’t want to have them re-encoded at all.
I send video reviews to directors all the time but for a 11min animation episode at 1080p with the hard coded options this comes in over 3gb. Why would this ever be necessary? The final picture encoding on a professional project will never be done from Cubase - review exports will be done all the time.
Either keep the original encoding (doing the correct splits to match export) and add audio or provide decent re-encode options to make it a useful alternative. For the moment I have to continue the way I did before as this feature isn’t fit for purpose.
