I think it works with anything. It's in one of the menus, I don't recall which. Something like DV scene detection, and you have to turn it on and then it will stay on. I use it exclusively now, then name the clips after the fact. However, I don't capture an entire tape at once. I usually set in and out points about every 20 minutes. That way I can copy the capture scratch files to DVDs for backup if I want.

Awesome thanks Bill! Good thinking to break it up for DVD capture scratch back up.

FWIW, I learned years ago that the only way any kind of DV Scene Detection will work, regardless which NLE or capture method is used is that the camera the raw footage was shot on has to have the date & time set. If it isn't, it has nothing to detect.

.

And someone knows if the 24f mode works with Adobe Premiere? I am about to get the A1 and a dell XPS with Adobe Premiere and I've just read that Avid won't handle the 24f.

I am confused :(

I'll probably put a spanner in here, but what the hell....

I'm not a lover of 24f (25f here). Its ok for scenes which don't have a great deal of panning shots in them, but after doing quite a few tests, 50i seems to give (me anyway) much nicer results. I'd rather deinterlace if needed, especially if you deinterlace using the 50fps option, although you do lose a little in resolution. I think running 50i on a 100th shutter speed works just fine and gives you a few more options in the editing stage, it also works great for slow motion.

Just my opinion.
