Does this new HD powerpack support M2T format now, or at least timestamp-based scene splitting for HDV tapes now?
That's my primary blocking point to buying DVDMF6+ or VS11+ ...
You can insert .HDV hd-mpeg2.m2t (TS) video files.
Neither MF6+ or VS11+ captures in the TS format, they bothl capture in the PS format. and neither program splits by date/scene..
You can use HDVSplit to capture in the TS format & auto-split HDV, then insert into MF6+ or VS11+.
You need to buy the Plus versions for High Definition video.
Thanks for the quick reply- this makes a huge difference & may solve my HDV workflow problem!
Yes, I was planning to use HDVSplit to capture, since it does a nice job of naming files per date... I don't always like to have lots of little scene-split files (virtual clips in 4gb-chunks are easier to handle sometimes);
but it's fine if MF6+/VS11+ w/ powerpacks now won't force me to also convert all the little M2T files to MPG first!! (assuming "insert HDV .m2t" means will use directly, as opposed to converting it tp mpg2)
Given the sale on now, this may cause me to purchase! Thanks!
Now I have to figure out AVCHD vs 3xDVD or HD Rec "mini" DVD-R HD recording methods
(and thus what player/format to buy...)
Are there any differences in authoring features (disk menus, chapters etc) for 3X DVD (MPG2 or VC1) vs AVCHD (H.2645) mini HD disk format, in MF6+? Do they even allow VC1/WMV-HD authoring on 3xDVDs, or only MPG2?
And also what differences in such authoring for MF6+ vs VS11+?
Seems MF6+ is more advanced "cool" menu effects such as animations and themes and such, but... would be nice to have a direct feature comparison chart between the two, for editing & authoring...
if it was clear of the benefits/differences between the two, I could know which to buy, or if it was valuable to buy both.
