Batch Capture with XH-A1 in CS4?

I am currently using my XH-A1 with PP2 on a PC. Batch Capture is not supported in PP2 when using the XH-A1 and I am missing it more and more as I work on my short film projects.

Currently my workflow is; Capture entire tape with PP2. Wade through hours of useless footage while editing. Once I get a locked edit I bring the video into AE to apply all the CC and effects.

My question is; does CS4 support Batch Capture with the XH-A1? If it does not, is there a workaround that would allow me to Batch Capture with another program?

EDIT: I should also note that ALL my film projects are shot in 24F.

Was this using an XH-A1? Do you know if it works with 24F?

Aspect HD has scene detection when using 24F from the Canon cameras. But might I suggest using HDVsplit. It's free, and it has scene detection and preview.

I've downloaded and used HDVSplit before, but I wasn't aware that it had scene detection. I will check into this.

Well look at that! It says right on the download page that it will scene split by timestamp.

I see that you can also split files that have already been captured. I tried to test this, but it seems that it will only split .m2t files & all I have is .mpeg files from premiere. I thought .m2t & .mpeg were pretty much the same thing, but I guess not. I will try splitting while capturing in a bit and report back on my findings.

Thanks for your input Roger & Kevin. I tested out some 60i and 24f footage and scene splitting worked great. Plus I could preview the footage as well.
