It could be that the date/time were not set up on the camcorder when you shot some of the video. The program breaks individual "scenes" based on when the camcorder was paused or turned off, indicated by the time/date information on the tape.
Premiere Elements 7 won't split my DV clips by timecode unless there are long enough blank spots between shots. Otherwise the entire clip is captured without scene breaks.
On one of the tapes, the download process was stoped by an external hickup... after I resumed the download, PRE began to recognize the scene breaks.
Is there a way to have PRE identify the breaks AFTER the download?
Sort of. In Premiere Elements 7, right-click on the captured video in the project media panel and select Scene Detect.
You have a couple of options for detecting scenes. None will be truly broken into individual video files -- but the program will create a group of clips, based on your scene breaks.
I always use DVdate by Glagla to capture my DV clips. The clips can be named according to shooting time and date, giving two advantages:
1. Clips from several tapes will sort by shooting time in PE media panel.
2. Shooting time and date is visible within PE.
If it works on your tapes forget about capturing with PE.
