I did not see this in the “fixed” list for N7.0.40, but it is fixed, and it’s huge.
One of my most irritating issues with Nuendo up to this point was the way saving slowed down after a certain point in a project with many edits. I often had to bounce files to reduce the number of edits in an audiobook chapter, for example, just to keep saving snappy and to avoid the color wheel not uncommonly for ten seconds +. I’d then have to “remove unused media” from the pool. Sped things up, but was not at all good form in regards to saving edit history. I’d see all of the little processed chunks in the pool trash and dump’em.
This has apparently changed with .40. I’m about an hour and a half into a chapter, and typically Nuendo would be choking by now. But it’s not. It’s as snappy as it was at the start of the project, pre-edit. I noticed that the little chunks of processed audio no longer appear in the pool, though they do exist in the edit folder.
This, whatever you all did, is an awesome, dramatic improvement for me. Have been wanting it since N3, at least, which is when I first noticed the problem.
