Is it possible to start up Cubase without the Video Engine? I never use it and wondered if there was a secret flag you could add to the command-line to stop it loading. The only way I’ve found so far is to remove the DLL, as suggested (unofficially!) in this post: http://www.steinberg.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=3762&p=24701&hilit=video+quicktime+freezes#p24927
If not, is it something that Steinberg might consider? Having certain such flags available (only video suggests itself to me at the moment) would:
- allow only the required elements to load, saving resources
- be useful when troubleshooting, to isolate problem areas
It would be a simple matter to create icons for these alternative startups, as you occasionally see in other apps.
