  • Edius capture problem: 2 clips instead of 1

    Hello to everibody. I am using Edius from just one year, and I am satisfied. But now something is happened, or a setting is changed: capturing from any DV camera, when I stop the capture, I obtain 2 clips, one of only 1 frame, and the other with the right footage. I could bypass the problem deleting anytime the unwanted clips, but I feel stupid to do so. I am quite sure that is a wrong setting, but my experience is very little, and also re-installing the application doesn't solve the problem. Somebody has got the same problem?
    Excuse me for the poor english and best regards.

    when I capture from a DV or DVCAM tape, I get hundreds of clips, but I like it like that, each camera start/stop becomes a clip, makes editing very simple

    what are your file divide settings in Edius application settings/deck settings?

    in my case, I have "when the recorded time data changes" ticked

    unticking all, should give you one file, unless the DV tape does not match the project settings

    if DV tape has 32k audio and the project setting is 48k audio, then you can expect problems like that

      I have also had this problem in Edius (with earlier versions). At the time I captured the same tape twice, once with Edius and once with DV Capture. This produced a different number of clips between the two programmes. About 90 to 95% of the clips were the same; some of the difference was accounted for by single frame clips. I posted about it at the time on the old forum - the one before this one. My "solution" is to delete the single frame clips and not to worry about them.

        ...and I thought i was the only one who got this problem. Likewise i just delete them but dont know why i get them.

        Sometimes i get single frames in the middle of a long capture eg a stage show. The camera hasnt been stopped but all of a sudden there are 2 maybe 3 single frames in the middle. Weird

          In a 1,5 hour capture (2 tapes), I have found 3 wrong scene splits: one resulting in a clip of 1 frame, one of 9 frames and one of 11 frames. I am using Edius 4.51c, Project settings Full HD:
          Frame size : 1920 x 1080
          Frame rate : 25,00( 25/1 )
          Pixel aspect : 1,0000
          Field order : Top Field First
          Rate : 48000Hz
          Sample size : 16 Bit
          Channel : 2
          Rendering format : Canopus HQ AVI
          Over Scan Size : 0 %

          My camera is a Sony HDR-HC1E (PAL). I am capturing HDV footage directly converted into Canopus HQ clips (setting "fine").

          As the clips have neither gaps nor audio problems, I can use them on the timeline if I want. It is just troublesome when applying filters for example.

          Edit: I am using the same scene split settings as mentioned by Anton

            I find Edius' scene detection very sensitive and it picks up any tape errors as scene changes.

            I'm going tapeless ASAP!

              Is it possible that you have timecode breaks? Lack of timecode can cause capture problems.

                I've been using EDIUS since its initial release and am now at v4.52 about to upgrade to 4.54. Captureing usually starts with a very short and noisy clip of 1 or 2 frames and then settles down to create the single long clip I intend to get. The short noisy clip at the start has been there in all versions, but early versions also seemed to throw in such clips frequently througout the capture. The one or two frames at the start really isn't a problem for me.

                  Edius capture problem: 2 clis instead of 1

                  Thanks to everibody, and specially to Antonsvideo: his solution is effective!!
                  I have tried it and now I capture just 1 clip at time: it was a just "deck setting" to deselect !....
                  Best regards.
