importing a video file

Hi there! I’m using Cubase Elements 8 and I can’t seem to import a video file. I tried both an MP4 and an AVI and I get an alert “Invalid or not supported file”. Why is that?


It depends on codec. In Cubase 8 the video engine is based on Apple Quick Time. Make sure, you have Quick Time (Player) installed. If you can open the file in the Quick Time Player, you can open it in Cubase too.

Since Cubase 9.0.30, there is independent video engine in Cubase.
