NO LONGER DEVELOPED
ScenalyzerLive (short: ScLive) makes capturing video and selecting useful scenes from your DV-tapes very easy, comfortable and FUN! Sclive is the "missing link" between the Camera and your editing-program. Due to the file-size or file-format limitation under the FAT32 file-system (Windows 98/ME) .avi files are limited to 2 or 4 GB, ScenalyzerLive provides a solid Workaround for this 2/4GB problem.

20051216 German and English Release build


4.0 20050927
New features and functions:
Tapeindex

“Have all your tapes on your hard disk”. ScLive can now index DV-tapes with optical scene detection or at 1x, 2x or 12x speed with date stamp scene detection, and with optional video and sound in reduced size and reduced quality. Index file sizes are between 10 and 600 Mbytes per 60 minutes tape, small enough to keep the indices of all your tapes on your hard disk.

E.g.: Copy an analogue Hi8 tape to a DV-tape. Then index the DV-tape with optical detection, correct any necessary scene-breaks by joining or splitting scenes. Eventually print the index or export it to html, .txt or to a batch list. Any time later you can simply set batch-marks on the scenes you want and ScLive will frame-exactly batch capture the scenes you choose. You can also copy scenes or part of scenes from one or many tape-indices to a new cliplist and then batch capture the new cliplist.

Tapeindex-files are always created in ScLives tape-index folder (e.g. “c:tape-indices”) and have the following extensions:

.scl: tape-indices that contain only thumbnails-pictures and clip-information

.avi: tape-indices with thumbnails and video in reduced size

–This means a tapeindex-file with video is stored in a single .avi file which contains the video, the audio and – invisible to other programs - the complete clip-information.

Smart Batch capturing

ScLives batch-capture-engine has been greatly improved. It can now capture scenes or part of scenes from one or multiple different tapes, capture scenes from imported batch lists or simply wind and play the tape at any position you choose in a tape-index, it works quickly, very efficiently and correctly - no matter if the tape has interrupted time codes or not.

Cliplists

A cliplist is a list containing scenes or parts of scenes from various tapes or files.

At the beginning of a new video-project, you can browse trough various tape-indices and copy the needed scenes into a new cliplist (e.g. use “Right-click / Edit / Add selection to collection”, CTRL+D or the yellow arrow in the toolbar to quickly copy the currently selected clips to a collection-cliplist). Cliplists can be saved for later reference and can be used for batch capturing.

Clips in a cliplist, DV-avi-files on the disk or scenes in a tapeindex can be trimmed, split, combined, sorted, named, commented, printed, scene-detected or exported to html-files, .txt files or .txt batch lists. A new filmstrip-view shows the single frames around the current cursor-position and allows you to work frame exactly. Use the context-menu (right-click the clips) or the toolbar below the clips for accessing these functions.

You can trim, join, delete, rename, copy and move existing dv-avi-files in ScLive’s main dialogs file-view, e.g.: select an unwanted part of a file and delete it. ScLive will not change the files on the harddisk until you let it “commit changes” (push the little OK button or use CTRL+O).


Additional improvements

Various attributes of each clip/file/scene can optionally be displayed or printed with the new lists, including 1 to 9 thumbnails, comments, aspect-ratio, recording-date, time codes, audio-settings, indications of errors on the tape, number of frames dropped in this scenes, and many more. Right-Click into a cliplist and use “list-settings…” to change the layout of the list, Right-click the header of a list if you want to see or hide a column at the position you right-clicked.

How to:

Create a tapeindex:

Insert the tape in you camera. Open the menu “Tape” and select “index”. ScLive will ask for the settings and start indexing the tape. When the index is finished, ScLive automatically saves it to the harddisk. Sclive can also capture and index at the same time (using the index-option “capture and index at the same time”).

Batchcapture:

Set the batch-mark using the <INS> key on scenes you want to Batchcapture of the tape-index. Then use Start Batchcapture. Alternatively collect scenes from various tape-indices use CTRL+D and push start-batchcapture in the collection-cliplist.

Drag/Drop: Clips can be dragged & dropped between various lists, to start dragging click into the top-left rectangle of the thumbnail-pictures of a clip.

Rename clips:

Click into the name of the clip or use F2 to edit the name of a clip.

Select clips:

Click a clip to select it.

Click the first clip, hold SHIFT and click the last clip to select all clips from the first clip to the last clip.

Double-click a clip and all clips that have been recorded at the same time are selected (=group select).

Click three times and all clips in the list are selected.

Hold CTRL and click a clip to select/deselect individual clips.

Excellent program. Works flawlessly. Have used it for years. Sadly, the developer has no plans on making this HD capable. Too bad.

Neither Premiere Pro, Premiere Elements, Windows Movie Maker, Pinnacle were able to correctly detect scenes on DV tape shot on a JVC GR-D93US (NTSC). The all put way too many scene breaks into the file (even though it's supposed to work on time code -- still cannot figure out what the problem is) ScLive did without any problems.
Also, ScLive converts from AVI type 1 to AVI type 2, so you don't need a converter tool if this is one of your problems.
Have not had a chance to use other features yet, but hope to do so and update the comments at that point...

I purchased this software when I bought my ADVC-100 and have not looked back. I capture TV/VHS/XBOX to Type 2 DV using the Canopus DV Codec and then use AVISynth scripts to import into Virtualdubmod for editing. These scripts are then fed into TMPGEnc with edits intact for an excellent end result. This program has worked flawlessly for me, once I got it set up exactly the way I wanted it. This is the only reason I mark it down a little, is because I needed to tweak a couple of things before I was happy with the set-up.

The preview window makes cueing a breeze, and the start-stop timer has been very useful for capturing 24-7 any day of the week. If you are considering getting a Canopus ADVC product, I would strongly recommend that you consider buying this product as the two compliment each other beautifully. At worst, use the trial version and make up your own mind. I don't think you'll be disappointed !

Sometimes it captures well. I am capturing Type II DV from a Canopus ADVC 100. BUT! It captures AUDIO-only the best. Whatever happens, it always begins to stutter and start at random. It also seems to capture in a slow slow quick quick slow manner, with odd video artefacts such as serrated edges to moving objects - especially soccer players! I chose Scenalyzer because of its independence at being able to be programmed to switch both ON and OFF when recording. Using Windows Movie Maker - which works perfectly - I often end up with 40-50Gb files after 5-6 hours of recording - a lot of which is just 'fill' between the programs I want. My system is 2.4GHz P4 with 1Gb memory and a 149Gb HDD - yet Scenalyzer refuses to do a good job.

Installed and worked without any problems. I use it for capturing video from my camcorder, then import it into Adobe PPro. It is better than Adobe's built in capture since it does not stop, rewind, and start at each scence break, therefore not putting wear and tear on the device. I recommend it.

I used the trial version, but I plan on buying it.

Used it on my Canopus ADVC-100, transfering an old VHS,
homemade movie and no dropped frams. I really like the
setup and you can view what you're capturing in real time.

As a newbie, I'm glad this was the first program I used
with the ADVC-100 instead of floundering around with
programs that don't work unless you're ready to shell out
big $$$'s

Excellent program - has worked flawlessly. Extremely easy to use. Start/stop timer makes it well worth the mere $39. You can set timers to capture just like any VCR, including start/stop times down to the second. Name the timer and it saves the .avi files with that same name for easy retrieval. Keeps track of dropped frames, if any, although I have not had any yet using Canopus ADVC 100 for analog capture. You can also capture .wav only files for saving audio files from any video program.

I'm not sure why this happens, but when I capture analog video with my Pinnacle DV500, I get audio "chirps" every few minutes. I can't seem to figure out why this happens. Recording the same feed with Premiere 6.5 results results in a clean audio track. I'd love to be able to use this program because of the perfect audio/video sync feature. I'm not sure why it happens, so unfortunately I've had to put it on the back shelf.

I've had no problems with DV capture.

After an intense weekend with a newly acquired Canopus ADVC-100 and the Scenalyzer Live software capturing VHS and Laserdisc (PAL & NTSC) for transfer to DVD, I must say that this is a great and simple to use piece of software for capturing DV material. The little editing I needed was done in VirtualDub and subsequent MPG2 encoding was done in Tmpgenc.

Only problem I've had was to get Scenalyzer to recognize the ADVC-100 upon starting the program (this happened intermittently). A workaround was start Scenalyzer, unplug the firewire cable from the computer firewire port and plug it back in again, and then the input signal would "pop up" in Scenalyzer. Could be a scenalyzer quirk, could be a Windows "feature" ;-)

Past that I could capture hours on end without dropping frames or sound.

For DV capturing I recommend it!

How often do you find a product that does what it's supposed to do the first time...this one does. Still I would like to be able to adjust volume, color, contrast, hue, and brightness on the fly during capture. Other than this minor inconvenience, it's almost perfect.

Great capture software!!! For $33 (US) you just will be hard-pressed to find a better capturing program. I use with Canopus ADVC-100 capturing uncompressed AVI files, which are easy to to edit and filter with Virtualdub and Avisynth (both freeware) and encode to DVD/SVCD/VCD. I can go on and on about the many cpabilities of this proggie, but instead visit the website and read for yourselves:

Highly recommended.

This paired with the Canopus ADVC-100 has made my capturing life complete! This at first was the only program that worked flawlessly on my 750 AMD system I use for analog video capture.
Only feature I wish would work natively within the program would be a timer feature! That way I could (pardon the phrase) "set it and forget it."

This is hands down the BEST software for DV capture. It does it all: tape logging, scene detection, batch capture, and recording back to tape. Very fast, very easy. It never crashes, and runs fine in the background while you work without dropping frames; even on my old P3/650mhz box it never drops a single frame.

What would really make this a great tool is the ability to adjust volume and picture i.e. contrast, brightness, color, hue during capture. Unfortunately it can't.

But what it does do it does well. I've never a single dropped frame. I’m using scLive with Pinnacle S8 Deluxe capture card. Pinnacle can do these function changes on the fly (adjust volume and picture i.e. contrast, brightness, color, hue during capture) but PS8 has serious issues with audio sync in captured video.

scLive has no audio sync problems at all.
