I have a decent PC DAW which I currently use for all my work. If I need to work with a video track I just import the video to Cubase SX3 and use the video window.
I'm considering buying a laptop to be used as a secondary sampler and a mobile sampling setup. I'm also thinking about getting a video projector. I was wondering if I could use the laptop to run a second Cubase, connect the laptop to the projector via DVI/VGA and to the DAW via some digital connection running System Link. This way I could have two displays connected to my primary DAW and the laptop would play the video to the projector.
Is the video feature included in Cubase SE or SL? Is there a way to run full screen video in Cubase? I tried to find info at Steinberg but couldn't find anything detailed. Cubase.net seems to be down again.
There is also a firewire output option in Cubase. Does that mean that I can connect a video camera straight to the firewire connector and it receives the video from Cubase without any hassle? Are there any cheap conversion boxes that would convert the firewire to s-video for the projector?
Is anyone using something similar? I want to run the video from a computer so that I don't have to wait for tape syncing.
