Import Fix

Don't know where this actually belongs but since Premiere is my NLE...

I've been having some strange import problems with HDV that I first thought were audio (another thread here), then timecode, then maybe both. Sections would get mixed up or lost, very often audio would loop.

I capture with HDVSplit onto a laptop from the Canon XH-A1 since I don't want to load all of Premiere just for capturing (be nice if Premiere included a capture module).

It was suggested on these boards (Ervin Farkas) that I try MPEG Streamclip (free). I did and the problem went away. I don't really know why or how but it did.

In Streamclip I "fix timecode" and "convert to TS", then rename the resulting .ts file to .m2t and import to Premiere and everything works. I haven't noticed a resolution hit. I'm pretty sure there's no recompression since it only takes about 5-8 minutes on my machine to convert an hour clip.

Anyway, somewhere between A1 - HDVSplit - Premiere Pro 2, pointers get lost that MPEG Streamclip seems to restore. Maybe someone can tell us how or what, meanwhile, just thought I'd mention it in case it's helpful to anyone else. Thanks Ervin.
