C’mon, Steinberg. It’s about time.
I think if Cubase is being touted as a composers DAW of choice (which Steinberg want it to be) direct quicktime export is very much needed. Pretty much all other major DAWs have this (even Ableton Live). The clunky Replace audio in Video File option is an extremely poor substitute. When working on a film and needing to send Quicktime cuts of cues for review quickly, its really an unintuitive and cumbersome thing to do.
I’m guessing that Nuendo is being pushed as the DAW for this sort of thing, but Nuendo is a post-production DAW (and much more expensive and full of features that composers dont need). I think this is all a by-product of Steinberg push to clearly differentiate Cubase from Nuendo, yet as a composer it’s something of an oversight. Is this because they will have to pay a license or some such, and simply don’t want to?
How about at least of a purchasable addon for Cubase offering quicktime export? Not that I think it should be something that should cost extra…
