I discovered this when my “Content” drive became unmounted and I opened Nuendo. I was prompted to locate the VST content which lives on the ‘missing’ drive… fair enough. I mounted the drive and pointed the location dialog to the file it wanted on the now available drive. No problem. But then Nuendo wanted to go through each content file one by one! What? Nothing I could do would get it see all the files right there in the same folder.
I couldn’t even quit the process or quit Nuendo!! I had to Force quit. ( there was an option to forget the files… but I wasn’t sure it would just lose track of the content. It’s not a “Skip” button!.
So thats annoying… but today I received a project via AFF. Unusually the AAF file and the AAF content were in separate packages/files. ( from Premiere V15 ). Nuendo loaded and parsed the AAF file OK but then asked me where the content was. I pointed it at the AAF Media Package and Nuendo found the first file… but then it wanted the second file… then the third… again one at a time!!! For this case it was an impossible task. The producer is going to have to resend as an embedded package. But still, what is wrong with Nuendo?
Surely it should recognize when all the required content is present and just link it all??
Am I missing something here?
