  • Warning! Dumb HD Question!

    I've been using Scenalyser for years in SD and have just bought a HD cam. Obviously I can't use Scenalyser anymore so how to I capture a HDV tape using capture in edius (4.61) and split scenes by timecode?? (I should add I've NEVER captured any footage in Edius, always used Scenalyser.)

    2.8G P4 - Not a chance in HD? I was assuming so - looking at a core 2 quad upgrade.

    HDV New-bie - Help! :)

    (I did do a quick keyword search, and a quick read of the manual.........)

    You are right your old machine is at its useby date, any dual or quad core will do make sure you order 2Gb memory, video card I would use an ATI as there are some issues with the nvidea 8000 series cards and HD that I ran into. The cheaper ones work just as good as the newer but make sure you have 512Mb memory on the card, I have used a HD2600 Pro 512 with great success before changing to a FireGL, don't go that way there is no difference other than lightening your pocket.
    So far as breaking the video up Edius will do this AND convert to CanopusHQ AVI on the fly on capture with your new computer Min P4 is 3.4G, settings are found under
    <> Settings<>Application Settings<>Deck Settings and make sure Automatically divide files at "Timecode Break and when recording time data changes" and you will be away, these are the standard settings anyway

        YOu can use Edius to convert to HQ on the fly and it will separate by timecode. Problem is you then have to use Edius to name your clips based on content and that is not nearly as easy as in Scenalyzer. Trust me....I have looked for an alternative for a long time.

        Here is the workflow I have developed for my capture and clip naming.

        I capture in Edius
        I use google's Picasso (free download) to rename my files (it will read HQ files).
        I then start my edius project and load the video files into the bin.

        Picasso allows you to preview the clips and rename each clip to a descriptive name. You can also move them to their own folders. Picasso doesn't allow you to see filmstrip frames of the clip like Scenalyzer. It also doesn't have a function to scrub through a clip to quickly review content. Still it allows me to easier get my clips identified and named. Picasso also enables you to select multiple clips at once and rename them to the same name and it will put a numeric counter on the end like Scenalyzer did.

        I have never been a fan of the steps needed in Edius to name clips. I wish Scenalyzer would update to recognize the HQ AVI files. I don't care if it won't capture them....just recognize them so I can use it's functionality. Scenalyzer was one of the single best utilities I ever bought for SD footage.

          Thanks Phil. I totally agree! I'll miss using it.
