Just ended up with a first Mix on N7, 20min Documentary, and I have to say I’m not very impressed.
Window management is just not working for me. I’m used to do most restauration external in RX and switching between softwares is totally messed up. Even to pop up a windows-folder for dragging the edited files onto Nuendo-timeline is a huge task now. When Nuendo is minimized, and I just select a windows folder, media bay and markerwindow is popping up again, to get all Nuendo-windows back after hiding is nearly impossible here without re-creating the workspace over menu.
VCA’s are not working. I mean, how can it be, that I cannot do any trim-automation if a track is connected to a VCA? That should be one of the first issues discovered in beta-testing, since trim is the most likely way to go in a post-mix.
This aero-theme. Even without transparency and other user-definable changes, the title-bars are much more clumsy now. In addition it takes much more GPU-Power which I really recognize here.
Finally, an old one, I just was annoyed by a large amount of trys to get a video (with playout) prepared for sending a approval-preview. Many errors about not deleting an audio track, and video service not responsive, video-converting in external mpeg stream-clip, puh, what a mess in a media post production software workflow.
So right now, the only thing which makes me happy in new N7 is that we finally can work with the HiCut/LowCut since it now got definable slopes. Thank you for that one, it was the first time I did a complete mix without a third-party EQ.
