I remember a while back at the initial launch of N5 in Soho, London, all the exciting features that were promised including the re written video engine etc…, and more specifically remember being told, and reading on various posts the flexibility this video engine would be able offer; in terms of incorporating video overlays.
The main feature that we have been waiting for in N5 is the ability to display streamers. In all of the updates thus far, I’ve always crossed my fingers and hoped it would be there! Obviously, not being the case I have to ask the realistic question : When are we to expect these?
For the mean time I’ve been vigorously testing ‘Streamers’, an application made for Mac with CSV import options. It displays streamers very well with punches and a beep generator! - Locks to MTC with lots of advanced features. Quite simple to operate but powerful and only costs $249.
I think I’ll be buying the full version on Monday considering the lack of implementation in N5, but will it ever arrive?
On a different note in some cases we’ve had to revert back to Nuendo 4 in order to display certain types of quick-times etc… Overall not really enjoying the revamp video engine and the loss of scrubbing trim
