MiniDV archiving to MPEG or WM9 with time/date stamps?

Discussion in 'Amateur Video Production' started by, Oct 13, 2003.

  1. I have several MiniDV tapes (15GB/each) that I can
    archive into MPEG-2 via TMPGEnc and Windows
    Media 9 via Windows Media Encoder and Sonic
    Video Vegas for long-term data storage on a DVD
    (~4GB/each). I say "data storage" to indicate that
    I'm saving a .mpg or .wmv file on the DVD; I'm not
    trying to produce a DVD for play in a DVD Player.

    The problem I have is that the above archive paths fail
    to do anything with the time/date stamp information in
    the original MiniDV source. Is there an archiving technique
    or tool that *can* archive some of the MiniDV metadata
    too? I'd be happy just to have a Windows Media 9 file
    where each new scene in the MiniDV source corresponds
    to a chapter in the Windows Media 9 file.

    Chapter 1 = 8/23/2002 14:47 GMT
    Chapter 2 = 8/23/2002 17:04 GMT


    An undesirable and acceptable option is to find a tool
    that would read MiniDV source and spit out chunked
    up file files where each file is named with the data/time.

    The free version of Scenalyzer -- not Scenalyzer Live -- will name as you'd

    www.scenalyzer,com -- look for the old freeware version.
