    Create clips from footage in timeline

    cellobella Level 1

      I captured a long section (over 30 minutes) of mini DV footage from my camera.  I did not capture the footage as individual short clips--just one long one.  Putting the footage in the timeline, I would like to be able to break it into shorter clips that I can organize in bins in the project window.  Is there any way to do this, or do these individual short clips have to be created during capturing.

       

      Thanks.

          I used to do DV editing, and I always either separated the captures or had the capture try to divide the scenes (which it did with varying success).

           

          In the respect that it offers scene-detection, it might imply that creating individual source clips later (which can be saved from the timeline after you make your cuts) is not possible.

           

          I don't know this for sure, though.
