NUENDO - Field recorder ISO tracks import

Hi, after about 13 years on Protools, I decided to give a chance to Nuendo. But missing really important feature.

After seeing some promo video, I was hoping that “Field recorder audio import” will do that same or better than in Protools.

But for Video postproduction is that feature quite useless.

What we’re often doing is to conform all ISO tracks (Boom, lavs etc.) from mixtrack, which came in AAF from video-editor. In protools it works like that: You create one track, where you put mixdowns events (clips), that you need to expand. Then you select the folder with original audio with ISO, and DAW will find by (metadata AND timecode) the matching files and place it belong the mixdown tracks.

The Nuendo “Field recorder import” is almost there. But it is not placing files on new tracks by origin timecode (WHY???) but from begining. So it’s useless. And would be fine, if it can do it not one by one, but hole track.

It’s sad, because this feature is for most postproduction workes like MUST and will be good reason to not crossgrade from PT.

I don’t use the function myself, but have you checked posts by ErikG or Fredo? I’m guessing they have experience with it and you could check with them just to see you aren’t missing something.
