Yes it would make the lives of engineers for composers far easier. Hell, even Ableton Live has this feature, and its not known for being a music to picture DAW. Time for cubase to catch up.
Current working method:
- Duplicate cue cut of video file. if your working to an entire reel then you have to goto quicktime pro first and cut the video exactly to matching timecode (PITA)
- export audio file with dialogue and music bounced together
- if file is not the exact same length as the video file, youre screwed
- find your video file and Dialogue and music bounced file
- replace audio in video file
- hope it works
- X 35 for a film
Also if you get it wrong the first time Cubase refuses to replace the audio in the video a second time. You have to rename the video file to something else. Its just silly. On top of this, when prepping sessions for a film, I wouldnt need to spend all that prep time in Quicktime Pro cutting and exporting specific musical scenes for each cue - could just open up the whole reel and trim the video in cubase to the desired scene.
Preferred working method:
I dont see why this would be a big deal to implement, but I know it wont happen because Steinberg are concerned that there are slim differences between Nuendo & Cubase and this would make it even more acute
