I captured video into a PrePro CS5 project from one HDV camera (Canon HV40) without any problems and used Scene Detect. I am trying to capture video from a second camera (Canon XHA1s) the recorded with the same settings as the first cam: 1440 x 1080 / 29.97. But when I choose Scene Detect, I get the following message: Record Error Date/Time recorded not found on tape and is required for scene detection.
Strange... I've got the XHA1 (not "S" model) and scene split works great for me... I checked through my camera's settings, but didn't see an option to turn off the TC. Perhaps that's a feature in the s model, that may be turned off by mistake?
Thanks David for your reply to my post.
It turns out I forgot to plug the IEEE-1394 cable into the camera
My kids say I'm a nube...I guess they're right !
That's why you'll get that little message at the top of the capture window saying that the device is offline... ;-) Glad you solved it!
