Heyho fellow Cubase users,
I’m facing a simple but VERY frustrating problem. I need to create content (sounddesign and scoring) for moving picture. Since Cubase offers the possibility to import a video file there shouldn’t be a problem.
BUT: It is NOT possible to adjust and edit this content right to the picture. I’m talking about the “Edit Mode” from Nuendo. For those who don’t know what I’m talking about, a short explanation:
Whenever you move a clip in Nuendo, the cursor follows along this movement. Doesn’t sound that much, ha? But with the cursor moving, the picture of the video also moves and therefore you can see where the right spot (frame) is to place the sound.
This is an absolute ESSENTIAL feature when working with picture. I don’t want to purchase Nuendo and pay for all the features I don’t need (ADR, Game Audio, Reconforming etc.). Cubase advertises itself as a content creating tool and it’s all I need for scoring and sounddesign, but the lack of the “Edit Mode” is really bothering me.
I wonder how all the big Hollywood composers (Hans Zimmer, JunkieXL) work without this thing. All the other DAWs like Logic, Pro Tools and Reaper have this feature included. Steinberg’s determination in Post and Music related features starts to drive me nuts. I don’t want to switch my DAW after all this years just because of the lack of a very very simple feature, which should be absolutely naturally. I mean it’s 2016 come on …
PS: If anyone found a workaround, I’m happy to hear it.
