Can anyone advise me on the correct way to capture HD video using PPro CS6.0.1? I have captured one HD video (one hour in length) and I have tried to capture ANOTHER HD tape and I keep getting the "Can't change File name. Keeping the original name." This is so frustrating! Does anyone know the correct procedure? Am I supposed to start another fresh project everytime I capture? I do like CS6 but capturing from tape surely must be one of the most fundamental things an editor should dobe able to do. It should not have to be rocket science. I simply cannot name what I have captured and have to do the whole 1 hour of capture again.

I do not capture HDV from tape, so I did not pay "much" attention to the previous discussions, but there have been previous discussions of this problem
I have NOT used it, but many say to try this for HDV capture http://strony.aster.pl/paviko/hdvsplit.htm
Thanks for the info, Ann. I just captured sucessfully the one hour tape. I just let PPro decide what it wanted to be called ie untitled 03 (or something like that!) I will take on board your suggestion. Thanks again
Just to be sure... tell them again!

Well, I'd just like to add to this fiasco of capturing HD video. I am once again capturing another tape. The thing is now, I cannot see any video in the capture window. I was able to see everything before. No idea why this happened. I don't normally capture using HD tapes - I am normally an SD man! I think I will only accept jobs which uses SD footage! I have renamed all my HD files via Windows explorer. I did try to do this using Bridge cs6...except that it kept freezing and I had to do a Ctl-Alt-delete. I think I can hear the call of CS 5.5 calling me back!!
Thanks Jim! I meant to post late last night but went to bed! Yes this did do the trick. My mistake - I typed into the 'TAPE NAME' bit instead of the CLIP NAME! Oops! Thanks for your help in this (and Ann too! Ann you were right!)
