Capturing to m2t creates multiple files

Hi,

I was given some HDV tapes that was shot in 1080i 30p.
On my first tape capture, I used Vegas 9 video capture. The tape is 30 minutes long and I was expecting just 1 big file m2t file...instead I got 3 files

file1 is 2.5 gigs
file2 is 268 megs
file3 is 968 megs

My hard drive is setup with NTFS.

Anyone know why 3 files were created instead of just one?
I didn't get any drop frames during capturing.

Also, besides Vegas video capture, anyone can recommend another video capture? I used to use SClive and loved it, but it doesn't work with HDV anymore.
Thanks

I would imagine it's a setting you're using in the capture process. You might want to post this in the Vegas forum. Most NLE's have a scene detection and maybe that's the setting you're using.
