This has been on the request list for years and I will ask again.
PLEASE can we have a feature to simply export video and sound (with sound source selectable like our audio export window) direct from the project window. Obviously exporting locators or markers in batches (with naming options) would be a no brainer within this feature.
I know you can send audio to a video file, but this is too complicated and risky.
Other DAWS can do this. Please can Nuendo catch up with this?
Regarding which format to export, it would be fine if Nuendo just clipped from the source video (i.e. the video that is referenced in the Video track) although ultimately a range of video export formats would be great to. The audio format would ideally need to be MP4 based, so as to avoid mushrooming video data footprints and allow the creation of internet streaming ready files. Ideally.
However, even a simple export video function with WAV audio would be great, and could be quickly transcoded in 3rd party software for streaming/delivery.
My work flow right now is that I export audio and bring this in to Final Cut Pro X to line it up with the the same video I was looking at in Nuendo, add some text overlay, and export from there. It is a major process and introduces risks (wrong alignment, wrong clip naming etc etc). I do this at least twice a day depending on my output. Even lining the audio up to video in FCPX is problematic, as FCPX is reading BWav metadata incorrectly, for which I must mentally compensate. Other video editors may work better, but this is all headache really.
If the programmers at SB decide to take this up, the absolute ultimate would be the ability to overlay simple text (with selectable font, position and opacity and ideally background). This would take Nuendo AHEAD of it’s competitors.
Thanks for reading.
