  • Why does capture sometimes make clips?

    First thing I captured 2:30:50:02 from a vhs tape, as one large clip.
    Not knowing how much was left on the tape and having to pop out I stopped capture.
    Came back and have just captured the remaining 27 mins and it has made 7 clips from this.

    As such it isn't a problem as they go on the timeline and out pops a dvd, but why has it done that?

    I haven't changed any settings,
    Capture front bay, composite as dv50i, same as I always do.

    Computer wasn't turned off while I went out.

    Maybe the created clip is over than 2 Gb (or some limit).
    I don't know how do you set that limit...

      this can happen when there were interruptions to the incoming signal caused by snow or blank spots on tape

      to avoid this, use a TBC, then snow can go for hours and you will get perfect results because the TBC supplies a constant stable output

        It's not the 2gb or 4gb limit, as first clip captured was 2 1/2 hours long at some 30 something gb.

        I looked at joins and there is nothing noticeable, but could be something I can't see, it's not a change of camera/cut/transition/snow, it's right in the middle of things.

        I might recapture it and see what happens, but then again, I have another 6 tapes to capture yet. Next one is 53 mins in and all one clip so far...........

            Particularly if there is a momentary audio overload.
