On my projects, I move from Bar-beats and TC.
with the trail of Nuendo 10 (yes I’m still in Demo), I find that I change from TC to Bar beat and it keeps going back to TC every time. I save project as Bar beat and when open up it in TC ruler again.
I can not exactly reproduce the bug at this moment but since I am a Nuendo user (from v5) I randomly experience that when I save a template with (a lot of) ruler tracks in a certain format, close it, then create a new project with ruler tracks in a different format, then the saved template will have the ruler tracks’ format changed when opened.
This is what I posted when it happened to me (it still happens a couple of times a week… )
This morning I experienced it again:
My template has a lot of ruler tracks, and most of them were saved in TIMECODE-format as well as the Main Time Format.
Before I opened my template this morning I was working on a musical project on the same computer yesterday, which has the Main Time Format in BARS AND BEATS.
When I opened my template this morning, all of my ruler tracks and the Main Time Format were set to BARS AND BEATS.
I don’t know if this relates to your issue, but for me, both Nuendo (still on 8) and Cubase (9.5) don’t save the ruler format with the song - I regularly switch between Bars/Beats and Time in different projects, and I often find when I open a project I previously set to one format, that it’s changed to the other.
I mentioned it in the Cubase forum a while back and Martin Jirsak responded that there’s a pref to control this behaviour, but I wasn’t able to find it.
Yeah, I am more and more starting to believe (with you) that Nuendo doesn’t save its rulers format with the template.
Which, I think, is a huge omission and very annoying when you have a template with several ruler tracks which need to be re-set to their correct format when they got automatically (but wrongly) set by Nuendo after a project with a different “Main Ruler Format” was opened…
How do you deal with that?
If I were a developer @ Steinberg, I would at least implement an option where one could link the rulers’ format to the Main Rulers’ Time Format.
And, you are right: there is no pref yet which lets you do that now.
