Weird workflow for DV material if I understand you correctly. Using Scenalyzer and then PP for capture??
Not too Weird, at lest for me:
1) Shoot Video
2) Run Scenalyzer to create and Index (index/catalog is a reduce size capture of the tape). Turns out to be about a 100meg file for a 60min tape.
3) Through Scenalyzer select the scenes that I want and create a batch file for Premier. With my video work, usually only 20% of the tape ever makes it into editing.
4) Feed the batch file into Premier and do the full capture for the scenes I want.
5) Start editing.
This process has:
Reduced disk space requirements for me and gives me an index/catalog file I can always go back to if I need other scenes from the tape.
I am not aware of a program to do that. An alternative might be to improve your shooting skills, so you can use more material for editing and then use HDVSplit.
As harm suggests you can use HDV split to split the files then import them all into Premiere.
Select the ones you want put the m on the timeline and "remove unused" clips from project manager and you're done.
