Default Is this a dropped frame?

Capturing Hi-8 tape input through a Storm Mobile and I'm seeing occasional momentary grey/white blank display during capture. Is this a dropped frame and is there a way to have Edius ignore it? Is it preventable?

Thanks as always.

How does the captured video look after capture is competed? Do you see dropped frames, audio glitches, or audio slipping sync?

As Don is saying, what is your captured footage doing. Quite often you can get strange things with computer overlays that have nothing to do with the captured material. If it is OK, the best thing to do is maybe ignore what the overlay is doing as long as you are capturing OK. Or maybe use a hardware capture device that uses it's own output.

More than likley droped frames, i see it when capturing someone elses tapes where they have gaps between takes usually when they have played back previous takes
Go to Settings/capture and experiment with the Auto detection and Divide Files mine are all off except divide
If its a timecode break check At TC Break and choose divide Files when detected

Presumably you are performing an analog capture so if you do not have a TBC in the mix you could be seeing a loss of signal momentarily... these often show up as a grey screen as you describe...try adding a TBC. Of course this will show a timecode break and a dropped frame both of which can be ignored..... but you will find on poorer material this will only get worse...proper re timing is needed.
