Ok, so i decided to live with the long load times and start working with omni.
So i have a project open in nuendo 3, omni and a quicktime video (h264 codec). This is the standard codec/video setup that i've used for a couple of years with all my other plug wthout any hassle.
Everything is fine until i push play - nuendo crashes, freezes completely and i have to restart.
going to try converting my quicktime to avi and use the directshow player instead and see if this makes a differece.
anyone else had any problems along these lines?
I'm just not having any joy with omni
