I know someone already asked for the implementation of this features, but looks like nothing changed so far, so I'm asking here again. angel

I work as sound designer for a game company, and as you can imagine having a fast workflow is essential. I tried a lot of softwares and found out that Studio One have some serious potential for sound effects production. At that point I asked myself, why aren't sound designers using Studio One? Well... I found out that the answer was hidden in the video implementation... I even asked other guys on my team and surprisingly others said the same thing. "I tried to switch to studio one but the lack of video tracks etc blocked me".
PLEASE guys, make it happen. There have been requests for video features since 2016, asking for the same things, and with over 300 votes....

Yes, please! We need multiple video tracks with thumbnails, and cut detection that will add markers at video cut points

I totally agree. The video is implemented in a very inefficient way. Video Track is the answer. It is better for syncing projects, to work with film, etc... and it's even better if you can edit or even have multiple videos. For instance, for separate each cue from a film.

What has happened to me is that if I modify something (in length), the things that I've written after that thing are moved and VERY HARD to sync again. In Cubase I had the video track and multiple markers to solve that.

This is important and I think it's the main weakness of Studio One, which by the way has improved A LOT since I bought it in November.

Yes that would be amazing!

Hopefully could come with a "display time offset function" like in cubase so once the video is moved you could still sync your audio files via the "move to origin" macro on other sessions...

I think at least the Video Track to move it on timeline, but having the option of multi video tracks will be great too, but I think is a major upgrade and is a call to Presonus to experiment a little more with video implemetation, we are not saying have a substitution for a dedicated video software but just a few basics concepts would be AWESOME!
