Windows 10, Finale 26, Sonar Platinum (latest version).
Imagine my surprise when I started work on an urgent project scoring a short film and after being away from Finale for quite a while (still updating though), I discover the Movie Window is gone and we're supposed to use something called ReWire. Almost everything I see about ReWire assumes you are using a Mac. Following all the examples, I'm not seeing any ReWire options in the Playback controls nor the MIDI/Audio menu.
I understand it is supposed to connect Finale to your DAW, but how does that help me? Sonar can display a video while playing audio tracks, but that certainly lacks the functionality of using the Movie Window within Finale. And in my case, Finale and Sonar DO NOT play well together. It seems they fight over use of my E-MU audio interface.
What I'd like is just a simple app that loads and displays a video file and can be sync'd and controlled by Finale via ReWire. Is such available? If not, can I use Sonar in the same manner as I used the Movie Window? I'm afraid I'll need some detailed instructions for connecting these apps on Windows.
Sorry for the rant. We were doing the 48-Hour Film Project (script, film, score, and produce a short film in 48 hours) and I've only had 2-3 hours sleep over the last few days. And I spent most of my time fighting with the technology and I'm supposed to be a computer guru. Thanks!
