Nuendo 10 mainly includes the implementation of numerous user requests related to audio post-production and game audio design. Together with its many enhancements and the musical features previously introduced in Cubase, this version solidifies Nuendo as and advanced media production system.
To expedite post-production workflow, Nuendo 10 now includes Video Cut Detection for analyzing videos for edits and setting markers automatically.
