Cubase 5.5 got a new video engine. This video engine needs Apple QuickTime Player 7.x installed to play back Video. Install it and have fun.
But the new engine and its menues are (like many other new things, for instance the complete new mediabay-surface) not considered in the manual (even not in the pdf!). Slack performance, Steinberg!!
Therefore in the Cubase manual in chapter “Video” there is shown the wrong, old menu for choosing video devices wich is not necessary in C 5.5, because it always uses the QuickTime Engine! And the user is led to think: “My cubase doesn’t recognize any video devices!” It took me ours to find out this - also because in this thread nobody considers it useful to write explicit answers. Now I will do so and hope You can have it faster!
@ Steinberg: I always prized the precise, complete and very good subdivided manuals in professional diction coming with your software. Please don’t give up this tradition!
