I am starting a 20+hrs of DV video importing using PE7.
I can either import each tape into one large .avi file or split (by timecode) each tape into many .avi files.
I would prefer to import each tape into one large file BUT if I do so I cannot automatically split the large .avi file by timecode (only by scene detection)
I do not want to use scene detection because it generates too many scenes.
In PE7, is there a way to split the .avi (by timecode) once it has been imported into one large file?
Few additional questions:
1- Can someone also explain in the preference/capture what the following setting does: "use device control timecode"?
2- Is the metadata time/date stamp of my DV tape, imported and stored in the .avi?
Thank-You for your help.
