I have a Canon HV40 that uses mini DV tape. It does the capture thing ok but the logging of clips during the process puts a lot of wear and tear on the tape mechanism. Is there a way to capture the entire tape in one clip, and then break that long clip down into individual scene clips inside CS4? Thanks!!
If you captured with Premiere you get one big file. Run your file thru HDV split so it cuts it up in clips.
You can also capture directly with HDV split with scene detection on.
Then in the Windows Explorer/The Bridge chuck away the clips you do not want.
