Once you have a video file to play with, Nuendo can edit in a different mode known simply as Edit mode. In this mode, the transport has a different behavior as you manipulate events in the project window, enabling you to reference video frames for editing tasks.
To turn it on, choose Edit Mode from the Transport menu. (See Figure 12.7.)
The first thing you might notice is that the cursor bar disappears from the project window except in the ruler display at the top. This is the only visual indication in the project window of being in Edit mode. The idea is that the cursor is now tied to the event selection. When you select an event, the transport will snap to the start of that event. The video will also snap to that frame.
