it seems there’s something not working properly with the “Render Selection” function when there’s some “complicated” routing in the session (and by complicated I just mean a cascade a busses going into other busses, to other busses and so on, and multiple Direct Outs).
The issue is that rendering this way, in these condition (with complicated routing) takes an enormous amount of time and often leads to crashes.
Today that happened with a session with 96 tracks: every track had a channels strips on it and occasionally some other stuff, but that’s not important.
Today I lunched this function selecting all 96 tracks, and, after 20 minutes of apparent freeze (the apparent freeze happens even if I select only 1 track) process started, very slowly. After 4 hours and 60% of the job done, Cubase crashed with not log.
It’s not a plugin matter, as if all those tracks, with the same plugins, go on the master buss directly, function works really smoothly.
On the same session, after the crash, I ended up using the usual bounce function, “Export Audio Mixdown” selection all 96 tracks at once (through the completed routing).
It took ONLY 5 minutes, and the printing was done.
On both function I selected the “Insert and Strip” (or equivalent) option as I needed only to print channels.
I’d love for the “Render Selection” to work properly as it has the very convenient “As Block Events” option.

Thanks for your consideration!
