Note that the demo version puts a watermark on frames in the file, so don't do anything real until you pay & register
Demo mode is to ensure it works with your equipment
Would HDV split also accomplish this for him? I find it useful for identifying scenes and splitting HDV files.
So I gather the answer is No, Premiere Elements cannot split AVI files when capturing from DV camcorders, except by timecode?
I realize there are other packages I can pay for that support the feature but I expect Premiere Elements (at least by v8) to have that capability.
In any event, Easy Video Splitter (doeasier.org) is now free and does the job well.
