ok I had a look, using Win10, small project.
Without any video in project, Cubase uses 8% CPU
With a video loaded but no video player open 9%
With the video player open in actual size 28%
With the video player in full screen size 30%
The VST performance meter does only show a little increase, it would take a real scoring to video session to determine if this will be a problem.
Interesting result and think this is really on the high end to be usable - and in comparison not efficient.
I get on windows 7 36%, but running VidPlayVSt plugin in Cubase playing the same video 9% - full Cubase process.
I run PowerDirector and 6-9% when playing back this video - the full process also.
All this done when thumbnails were done and ready - not using cpu doing those.
I run a weak i7-860 which rate about 5000 on cpubenchmark.net and your is about 9300 or so.
But since there are things left to do on Windows 7 with extraction of audio one can assume some playback stuff will be optimized over time.
But assumption that cpu was all good on windows 10 seems not to be the case either.
Message from Timo on Nuendo forum(a thread since october 2016 ) new video engine were ready and done Q1 2017 - but some licensing issues remained only. So four months later releasing on Cubase in this state is a bit sad - it was said to be ready long ago. Not enough priority from Steinberg on this obviously - just done with pinky finger it seems, not heart and soul. Time schedule 15 months says a lot too.
But for me, I'm good - I don't even need it running VidPlayVST which works flawless in my view. Just sad I did not look harder before since this plugin was out also since march or so. Some minor hickup, just stutter as a tempo jump are passed in Cubase, don't know what Cubase do there. Making a small ramp on tempo and no sign of stutter anymore(it was just a few frames, so no biggy) - so Cubase are doing something when calculating time in tempo jumps(I don't use the tempo driven style in VidPlayVst, so go by time reported by host).
9.0.30 run just fine by me otherwise. Running 6-7 hours sessions or so for couple of days and no instability or anything. As were 9.0.20 as well. It ws just 9.0.10 at release that crashed on exit if not closing project first. So v9 has been a good trip for me.
Windows 7 Pro - Intel i7-860 2.8GHz 16 GB - Cubase Pro 9.5 latest - RME HDSP 9632 + AI4S + Audient ASP 800 - Nvidia GT730
