Note: Some .mov and .avi files contain no video. You can’t import these files with the File > Import > Video command. You must use the File > Import > Audio command instead, and set the Files of Type field to All Files.Cakewalk also has a Video Thumbnails pane at the top of the Track view, which shows individual frames of your video at different places in your project (See Using the Video Thumbnails pane for more information).You open the Video view by using the Views > Video command. The Video view displays the Now time (as in the Big Time view) and the video itself.
