I have continuous video on my tapes (live concerts). I left the settings alone and Vegas split it at the 655MB mark (roughly a 74 minute CD).

So I guess what you're saying is that it isn't neccessary. I'm running Win2K on NTFS so the 2G limit isn't an issue.

Thanks,

That's outside my experience, Kevin. I've never captured a stream that large. Maybe someone else can weight in.

I do NOT let Vegas Capture break my clips unless *I* want them broken. When I capture normally, I capture in one great big clip. If, for some reason I want it broken on scenes, I'll turn on that option but usually have it off. In fact, I usually use batch capture. Personally, I would NOT have vidcap automatically split at CD size increments.

Okay... fair enough. I thought it odd that it had defaulted to that size. Since there's no benefit to that setting, I'll uncheck it.

Thanks for everyone's help,
Kevin

That setting should not have been on by default. However, there may be other settings you DO want to change. Take a look at the setting info in the first few issues of the Tips, Tricks, and Scripts Newsletter

The odd thing is that when I turned it off I got frame drops again. I threw a different hard drive in (7200rpm 160Gig) and have now pulled two tapes without issue. I'm thinking that the IBM drive was partially to blame.

Or misconfigured and therefore having to run more slowly. Maybe the Master/Slave/Cable Select jumber was in the wrong place on the first drive and the second one has it in the correct place?

No... the settings were the same. I put this new drive in the same place on the chain set the same way. Master on the secondary IDE channel. They were both using DMA.

The IBM is an older drive with a smaller cache and only 5400 rpm. I'm not sure what it was, but it's working now.

Thanks,
Kevin
