I hope to see this implemented in Cubase 10.
It would be sooo helpful for film music composers.
I just want to adjust the locators, go to file->export and click on:
Export video and audio mix.
Now I have to export the audio excerpt that I want to show to the client, keep in mind the timecode. Open Adobe Premiere (or any other video software), insert the video file, import the audio file in the exact timecode, and export the video with the exported audio from Cubase.
I’m doing this for every scene, for every soundtrack for many many many years.
Please, make this option happen in Cubase 10!!
They are advertising and selling on the fact that they have a new video engine. At the studio where I work for, some went back to 9.0 to fix compatibility issues. Since, we cannot export video and the replace audio fonction has been removed, it feels like a step backwards. It’s a total wast of time to have to use another software to have a cue approved by the client. I don’t care if it’s not top notch quality with every single CODEC implemented. We only need a descent reference that is timecode accurate so we can have cues approve and move on with our work.
What’s taking so long? I used to be able to export video with Ableton Live years ago and Ableton is nowhere aimed at film scoring.
If you have the exact length of video as a clip, that your new audio will refer to, you could install this little app (which is BRILLIANT) which will add your new audio to the video file, without having to launch Premier or remember exact timcodes. Its a standalone little beauty…!
I spent longer getting the audio and video into Final Cut, realigning, resetting levels, etc. then I did actually composing a quick 2 minute demo soundtrack for a trailer in Nuendo 8m last week.
Doesn’t need to be distribution ready but a lot of times I will quickly dump a video clip into Nuendo, offset it in time, and then improv a quick sound track with intro/outro sections for a demo or a pitch. This means my start times are not aligned between the a mixed down audio and video section.
Essentially what we need is a non-realtime render, without the flicker, of the video playback window.
I’d pay the upgrade only for this feature. It doesn’t have to be a full featured video editor. Just dump what is in the video preview, to be able to send a preview to the video editor and move to Premiere when everybody is happy with the draft.
