Unless you want to be continually converting 23.976 to 24fps for BOTH main DAW and slave.
I think its absolutely ridiculous that Steinberg have done this. Nowhere in the online comparison does it say it. Only in the manual.
And I got caught purchasing C12 Elements in this sale, for the purpose of a video slave. It was a complete waste of money! You might say well convert it to 24fps. But I’d also have to do that in my main Nuendo project in order to remain in sync. And that’s just not feasible. Fork out for Cubase Pro just for proper slave functionality? Yeah right, not after that experience.
Thanks, yes I have been using my old Nuendo 11 license but I wanted to start using 4k video when Steinberg finally fix the bug that letterboxes 4k frame down to a smaller HD window inside. In anticipation of that in some C12 future version, and the sale was my prompt to buy C12 LE, albeit not possible at 23.97 which most of my work is in.
Thanks, I admit I havent tested a 2nd installation of Nuendo 12 since I assumed it couldnt be run simultaneously. Plus I need to have that on my laptop.
Have you tested running 2x N12 installs simultaneously on the same license? I’m also concerned how many times I can activate/deactivate if I have to move to my laptop then back to desktop slave.
Also, the video slave in the studio needs to run my BM Intensity 4k Pro video playback card for smooth response and good colour for clients. My laptop cant be used with that card.
Thanks for the VidPlayMTC link but the smoothness of VST System Link, the way it scrubs etc was the lure. I do prefer it and was willing to pay for it, but not C12 Pro price. Does VidPlayMTC access BM decklink cards?
Please read the info about the new licensing, all you describe is possible. This has been discussed over and over on the forum ad infinitum. It is exactly, and as simple as @Phil_Pendlebury says. Also the doc about licensing is at the very top of the Steinberg webpage, or the menu if you’re on mobile.
