Chapter 12. Big Picture: Managing Comple... > Using DV Start/Stop Detection

Using DV Start/Stop Detection

The DV Start/Stop Detection feature automatically sets markers in a previously captured DV clip each time it detects a Start/Stop (Record/Pause) signal in that clip. Because FCP can use markers to break a clip into individual subclips, you can use the technique outlined here to capture long sections of DV tape and break it into usable subclip chunks. After you've “subclipped” your long captured clip, you can use the Media Manager to delete the unused master clip footage from your subclips.

As you might guess from its name, DV Start/Stop Detection works on DV format source media only.
