Chapter 2. Capturing and Importing > DV Scene Extraction

DV Scene Extraction

If your original material is digital video (DV), you have the option of recording your material using the DV Scene Extraction option. While capturing, the DV Scene Extraction feature automatically creates smaller clips—what are referred to as sub-clips—from your master clips. These sub-clips are created based on when you started and stopped recording scenes with your camera. Each time you start recording, a piece of information called metadata is added to the DV tape. This metadata includes the time of day, among other things. Avid Xpress Pro uses this time metadata to break up one long master clip into several sub-clips. It can also add locators or markers to your clips, making it easy to find a clip’s start time. This is a great feature that makes the process of recording extremely simple.

DV Scene Extraction can occur during or after the recording process. To use this feature during the process, you must first change some settings. In your Project window, select Settings to open the Capture Settings window. Click on the DV Options tab (see Figure 2.17).
