    Who knows how can we get the file names showing the date and time of the
    footage using Vegas Studio? The pretty "simple" Movie Maker is able to
    extract this info from the tapes easily and it shows this info when imports
    the files that made itself.

    Is that possible in Vegas Studio at all? I know that there are some settings
    in Vegas...

    Sorry, one correction - the idea was to make the file names generated from
    the date/time, not like a stupid sequence of the words and numbers assigned
    by Vegas(Studio). I like the video clips to be called using the absolute
    datetime, it's very convenient to order them keeping in mind 20-30 different
    tapes and thousands of files... So I'm not sure that this is a very good
    idea to rename all files manually getting the date and time from the Vegas
    Project Media folder in the next column. I'm wondering if any software is
    able to create the file names like I described above... Or maybe some
    plug-in or a separate simple software able to get this time stamp from the
    file and rename the file automatically... I wish I knew how to extract this
    info, it would be very easy to write this tool just in a few minutes...

    Thanks for the link. Do know of anything else that like CassetteDV that
    catalogues DV tapes? I can't get on with CassetteDV at the moment, but I
    will persevere. I would like to look at other programs as well.

    Paul is a very nice guy and we already sent a few messages to each other.
    His latest DVDate was improved and published a few hours ago. Also I sent
    Paul a couple more ideas and if he could implement them it would be very
    good for all his users. :) Particularly I'm not sure if it's possible to
    call the codec using by Vegas or Vegas Studio form his applications. The
    codec is excellent, I guess it's the very best or one of the best on the
    market, it can produce video with a very high quality and if Paul could use
    this codec from his apps... Dreams... I realize that probably the interface
    of this codec is not standard to be usable outside Vegas at all. At least it
    maybe not published.

    Anyway I'm very impressed with this very professionally made software - and
    it's freeware! Paul knows about this newsgroup, I sent him this info a few
    days ago, but I'm not sure if he has a chance to get here. This NG needs the
    guys like him.

    Mike, maybe you could talk to him in French. It would be more convenient for
    both of you. I got a feeling that you should know the French. :)

    Sorry, but that's not how most people would want to work. What you need is
    for his software to made available as an alternative capture "device" from
    Vegas, producing files named in the format you want.

    I hear what you are saying and can't/won't argue with that. One of the
    problems I have is that CassetteDV says my cassettes are NTSC, but as
    I'm in the UK I reckon they are PAL. If they are being read as NTSC then
    I can't be sure that I can use the data later.
    Also, when I connect my camera (Panasonic NV-DS1) and switch it to VCR
    it keeps switching back into record mode. it does settle eventually. I
    don't know if that is the camera or the program, hence my wish to try
    another program.
    Ah, well, I passed my exams in French, but that was 58 years ago, so I
    doubt very much I could make myself understood now!
