I agree with you both … if the last update had real workflow improvements for Audio Post the way I do it ( no ADR sessions with a Nuage attached running through effortless Auto-conform cycles … yeah it would be nice but its not my life) then I would have updated already!
For the full update price I want more basic event and track manipulation features. It’s the grunt work on documentaries and corporate stuff that slows me down! Any two of the following and I’d be happy…
More than one time line per project… like the old Arrange pages. It would be great to bundle ‘scenes’ in a single document and move elements between them.
A simple and quick way to move selected event/s to alternate tracks. Select an event , right click, have a ‘move to…’ drop down with all tracks listed.
Duplicate a track with all its settings/inserts, sends but no content ( with out setting up a macro to do it!)
A Smart edit tool !!!
Copy paste effects inserts between tracks
Duplicate a track with all its settings/inserts & sends but no content ( without setting up a macro to do it!)
Multiple copy/paste buffer slots ( there are third parry solutions but I want a native internal solution which remembers its contents with the Project )
In addition to Track name a TAG field to assign Dialog, FX, Shot size etc…
A way to sort Tracks ( and TAGS!) in the project by name, date modified … etc.
Main output level meters in the project window that aren’t the mixer or control room (with everything hidden).
Convert audio to project sample rate when importing AAF bundles.
Export mix to the reference Video file.
Spectral editing ( OK that’s a big ask … but Nuendo is expensive ! )
I didn’t see much in V7 for me … so a gift from SB would give me a nudge and at least get me in the running for the next version update that will be more useful to me! Right?
