    hey guys
    i have got a problem when importing HDV footage into final cut pro.
    i am coming from a sony v1e going into apple prores and when it finishes capturing my bin gets split up into loads of little clips.
    This screen grab is one capture yet it has been split up many times. i thought it was auto splitting them say when i stated and stopped recording but it seems to do it at random

    How big are each of the clips? If you're capturing to an external FAT32 formatted drive, it will split each clip at just under 4 GB, which isn't very much when using ProRes.

    Edit: With 2 exceptions, they're all 11 seconds long. I think you've got a time limit set on your capture by mistake. Turn off any kind of time limit to fix this...

    File -> System Settings...

    Make sure that the time limit box is unchecked.
