>When I capture video by scene I often end up with 400 plus scenes in one capture.
That may be why it doesn't bother a lot of folks. I myself rarely go over 100 clips per tape. Less than 100 and the problem doesn't exist. When I occasionally do go over, a simple renaming in Bridge using three places solves the issue.
>I find it amazing that neither Bridge nor PP show the time and date that I have taken my videos.
I agree. It really is time for this simple feature to be added, especially in Bridge.
In the preferences there are many items which are unchecked by default are you certain that there is no way of using one of those preferences to get this info.
Thanks Jim and Wade for your responses. I have taken Jims suggestion of renaming the files in Bridge.I first had to clear all my files in the Project panel, open Bridge and rename all the clips, and then import them back into Premiere Pro with the new names and 4 digit numbers. It is a little bit of a nuisance, but it does work and it should make my editing a lot easier. I am not sure how to go about renumbering the photoshop sequences yet except to manually rename each layer , tediously, in Photoshop with 2 or 3 digit numbers.
Oh, and Wade, I have tried every edit column in the Project Panel, but none of then will show me the date I took the video. I really find that amazing.

If Adobe is really committed to Motion Graphics and NLE then they should really look at tis oversight. The one area that it has any real pertinence to and they leave it out.
You should make a feature request.
Thanks for the suggestion Wade. I have passed my recommendations for possible improvment of their software onto Adobe.
That's one of the many reasons I capture DV using Scenalyzer Live with the date/time in the filename. Then I can sort clips on date/time even across multiple cameras (assuming their clocks were synchronised originally, of course).
>I capture DV using Scenalyzer Live
yes, but only "DV" ..... works not with HDV ....
never heard the author "Andreas Winter" ( locaded in Austria, Vienna town)
is intended to updated it for HDV.... (unfortunately)
Edius 4.xx is the only thing, which I know,
a) that read the "time-date stamp" from HDV
b) that display it in the bin as column (for sorted per"time-date stamp")
c) burn in the clip: date or time, or both....
fast and funny thing to documented second exactly: court hearing \ parliament session etc.
Since I am working for the web streaming I do not need at the moment HDV but will as the web improves.
But this feature I can confidently say is a must have if if getting the right material in a timely way is important.
I find it a strange omission.
Thanks for the tip on Scenalyzer Live, David, I will have a serious look into that program. Sounds perfect for me.
