By manually, I mean you capture the whole thing into Vegas and then split up the scenes yourself. Then export them all as individual files.

I think someone made some sort of script that will do batch exports. I remember hearing about one.

Adi, as I think others have said, Vegas already does exactly what you're asking for.

If time and date are set in the camera at time of shooting (AFAIK all DV cameras have Date/time), and Scene Detection is enabled in Vegas Capture, it will split the capture into separate clips for each time you stopped and restarted the camera.

There's no stopping and rewinding involved.

ALWAYS make sure the date and time is set on the camera. It doesn't even have to be correct - it just has to be SET.

If the date/time is set (while recording), scene detection will work correctly in either Vegas Capture or Scenalyzer Live.

in order for the date information to be recorded onto the tape (without it appearing in the picture), do i have to use tapes with cassette memory?

No. Any Mini DV tape will store date and time as long as the camera had this up and running.

The date/time is part of the media recorded to the tape. NOT part of the video image. Those are two totally separate things.
