And, what's up with Premiere CS3 not automatically splitting into scenes? Does this still happen?
Okay after reading this thread and seeing HDV Split mentioned for the 1,000,000th time I decided to give it a shot. I used PRO exclusively for capturing up until this point. I have had very little issues over the years using premiere to capture.


First impression: Uhm, it's a beta? Fine, I have no fear, I've beta tested for MS, AOL, nVidia, and Adobe. 0.77 is the latest beta of HDVSplit unless I'm missing something. So -it is very simple to use and has a easy, simple GUI. (Did not see ANY sound options).

Capturing: Scene splitting is a dream -you can even split files already captured if timecode is embedded.

PROS - Simple, easy to use. I can do other things (mostly) while it is capturing. Premiere would stop when lost focus on the window. Scene splitting is great, auto file naming is killer.

CONS - It is very buggy. It told me my Quadcore with 4GB DDR2 800, 10K raptors, 8800GT, on a 5 hour old install of windows was TOO SLOW to preview and capture (after capturing for an hour with no issue). It has crashed several times. If I hit rewind while it is playing the timecode goes but nothing happens. Then I hit play and nothing happens but inside the camera (Sony A1U). I have to restart it a lot.

So I put HDVsplit on another computer, CoreDuo with 3GB ram, 7K drive (dedicated), 7900GT, same cam and then a VX2100. Same errors and crashing. Now both pcs were just reimaged and have all the latest paqs, patches, drivers, and updates. Very little other software on either.

When it works it is good. I still think Premiere is better (aside the kick ass scene splitting)
