    Hi again,

    Again I'm used to Pinnacle on the PC. When I imported an entire miniDV (Sony DRC PC330) it shows up as a single continuous video clip.

    I'm used to importing and having the movie automatically broken into clips based on when I start/stop recording on my camera when I'm recording something. In this case a hockey game.

    Any direction on if I need to change some settings upon importing, or does FCE just not do this?

    Thanks in advance,

    I cannot speak for FCE, but FCP has this feature ... so FCE may as well: Once you've captured a clip, look for the "Start/Stop Detect" feature. It will break the clip up into subclips based on when the camera was started and stopped.

    I can confirm that this works in FCE
