I recently tried to capture some High Definition Video using Power Director 7. I chose the setting which should have detected scenes during capture and save them as separate files. My one hour of video was saved as four files, each of which contained several scenes (which remained undetected). In the edit mode I was unable to further detect these scenes. So editing became quite a chore.
I then tried another tape, this time using the trial version of PD 7. This time it just captured the entire tape, with no scene detection, even though I used the same settings.
PD7 works fine for me using standard definition video, but not HD. Is there something I am doing wrongly, or is it a problem with the program? (I noticed with Adobe Premiere Elements that HDV can only be detected using content changes, not by time code. Is it the same for PD7?)
If I just capture the entire HDV tape (using the no scene detection option) is there a setting I can use to subsequently detect the scenes?
Any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
