  • iMovie scene detection from TRV-38

    Need some help. People I work with use iMovie, and needed a miniDV cam (under $1000) that works with iMovie. After looking at Apple's site, they advertise the TRV-38 and so I told them to buy it. After using it, have some issues:

    When we dumped the video with iMovie, there was no scene detection, couldn't get iMovie to split the clips (yes, made sure preferences was set correctly)

    Any ideas? Is there a setting on the camera I am missing?

    Thanks

    I've seen this problem posted here before. It usually arises because date and time aren't set on the camcorder. iMovie uses the timecode on the tape to figure out where the scene breaks are, so it can't find them unless the camcorder records that info, which means you need to set the date and time on the camcorder.

    I hope this is your problem, since it is easy to fix (although it won't help with the tapes they've already made).
