Does anyone know why when I capture 60 minutes of video with Sony Vegas from a mimiDV camcorder (Sony DCR-PC100) I get over 700 clips ranging in length from 1 second to 20 or 30 seconds? I've captured several shows with this camera before and not had this problem. :hmm:

While in the capture screen (vidcap6.exe for SD footage)

Options > Preferences > Capture Tab > Uncheck Enable DV Scene Detection

for HDV

Click on Preferences button > General Tab > Uncheck Enable HDV Scene Detection




It is auto-detecting breaks in the footage and thinking it is separate files. You probably reinstalled and forgot to fix the settings.

Thanks saltman! That looks like it did the trick.
Be on the lookout for another Buckethead DVD. This one from Ft. Lauderdale.
