This course covers the basics of importing video and working with it in Cubase. Personally I found the chapters dealing with basic midi sequencing rather pointless as the basics of Cubase are taught in other videos. Instead, it would have been nice to have had information about advanced ways to use, for example, hit points and more detailed tempo maps. So you might find yourself fast-forwarding a section or two, but the basic information presented is still valid, of course.

Great! A new approach to Cubase (at least for me)!
Never used the video track in Cubase at all, but now I feel comfortable enough to try it out.
