Tape Scan Issue

On my system tape scan does not log the the last scene on the tape (i.e., the end point where recorded video stops). I assume this is a normal behavior. Be nice if it would automatically set the end point for the last scene as the point at or a few frames before video ends.

I noticed this with DV.now also. I would class this as a bug rather than normal behaviour. Not very helpful if the last clip is a long one. I ended up having to re-capture the last clip by marking in and out points.

The Scan Tape function detects a scene change at very point where the recording was started and stopped. If you record on your tape until it stops at the end of the tape then it does not seem to create the end-point of the clip properly. When you are filming, try to stop recording just before you reach the end of the tape, rather than letting it stop automatically at the very end. That should overcome the problem.

I guess that means that after the last 'intentionally' shot scene, I should add a scene that is a throw away. That is, pause the camcorder at the end of the last scene, wait a few seconds, then roll some more footage (of the ground ), to create the throw away scene. Sort of a work around but it should work.

My particular problem occurs on the last scene shot which could be half way through the tape. I have not been in the situation where I have shot footage until the tape comes to an end.
