Auto Split Footage

My editing machine (Cassablanca Solitaire) will "auto split" footage from my GL2, injested via firewire into scenes using the cam recording "start/stop" function.

The editor will not "auto split" the into scenes injested via firewire captured by the JVC 700. Any ideas?

Ron - using DV and HDV markers is a tape based workflow. You are now using a solid state camera. If Casablanca could read the essence markers recorded in metadata it would work but you are ingesting via firewire. So I'm guessing you are getting HDV quality only. Not only are you not using the EX format which is superior to HDV but as you have noted you are not getting separate clips and this is a clunky real time capture method. Are you recording everything as one big clip or are you breaking it up into separate clips - this is a menu function on the 700?

I'm not that familiar with Casablanca (saw it demo'd a couple of times at trade shows) but my memory of it was it was a very proprietary hardware based editing system. Can you switch to something more up to date like Avid or FCP? They are a much better match for the 700 and don't rely on external processors etc. You simple transfer the SD card material to a hard drive and import from there (or you can import diectly) into your system or you can even edit directly off the SD cards with Avid AMA (dangerous IMO but great for ENG style work). You'll love this new workflow. It is faster than real time. Other NLE's that work include Vegas, Edius and Premiere Pro.

Just checking have you set the clock on the JVC, if this is not done on DV cameras then no clips during capture.

I had the original Casablanca and Avio once...
