So in cubase sx 3 I export the project as an .omf file and then I am lost. How do I get this to play in like winamp or something? I tried renaming it as a .avi file but that doesn't really do anything.

Nov 23, 2006 04:49 am hmmm....i'm gonna say, i'm sure ya know if it's mp3 or wav then winamp will play it....as for workin' with video, stienberg has Nuendo,...i don't think cubase can work with video. omf is for using your project with other host programs...basically it saves volume and pan settings...i've never really worked with it though.

Nov 23, 2006 08:00 am You'll probably have to select mpeg (or whatever othe video format) in the export dialog... not terribly familiar with cubase myself though.

Nov 23, 2006 12:21 pm Cubase can work with video, it just can't seem to export it. There is no export to mpeg option, only to omf.

Nov 23, 2006 09:23 pm Wow, how lame is that. I had a look Loki at the Stineberg site and it appears as though it cant export the entire file as an avi or mpeg. It can only import it on a video track then it does not save with the project. I suppose this is so they can sell more copies of Nuendo.

Here is what I suggest. If you have Windows XP see if you have the little windows movie maker. Simply drop your video into that and then drop the audio in. It should by rights all line up if you save the file to broadcast wav or even just wav.
Unless from what your saying above you cant even export to wav, then you have a problem because youwont be able to import the audio into the movie maker.
Nov 23, 2006 10:11 pm I do my multi-track stuff in Cubase, 2-track mixdown saved to wave as 48k 24-bit, then import it into Sony Movie Studio + DVD (got for cheap with rebates - $50?), import, zoom in close, and "slip" it around to match the video's original sound track. Just so long as I don't try for an "epic blockbuster", it works fine. Twelve minutes is about the longest stretch I've done like that... I've made a few "music videos" like this.

Nov 24, 2006 06:21 pm You'll have to have a video with OMF import function like Avid. but i can't assure you that the video portion will transfer with the audio
