Has anyone found a way to get the XA10 to make one long scene rather than a new one every time you hit the record button? My GL2 would make one long scene for as long as you had the camera turned on. You could stop recording, move stuff around afor a few minutes and hit the record button again without making a new scene each time you do that.

If the software you used to get the data from the GL2 tape to the computer was not set to create a new scene when it detected a new scene then it would put all the data into one scene. It's not the same with the Flash memory based camcorders. You can put the scenes together within the camcorder. See your manual.

OK, maybe I am looking for the wrong wording or something. Is there a hint on what the process is that is used to put the scenes together? I know it is liable to be something simple that I just have not recognized yet.
The XA10 works great by trhe way. the minor scene thing aside, I am liking this camera a bunch.

No, you aren't missing anything. I was mistaken in thinking you could create a story (page 105) and then have the scenes merged. Creating a story only lets you play back the scenes in any order your choose. I am sorry I led you astray. It looks like the only way to merge the scenes is with an external editor. I cannot tell you what the included software is capable of doing as I have never used it.

Actually, there is one way to merge the scenes. Create the story then use the Transfer Utility create a movie destined for a video upload site such as YouTube. Manual page 141. It sucks in that it is SD and creates multiple videos if the story is over 10 minutes.

Thanks! I thought perhaps my mind was going ca-ca or something.
I think I will work out a file system for downloading the scenes into so that I can identify them. I worked on a new video yesterday and found it was much easier to send them all to one folder, then use the Media thing inPremieree Pro to drag them onto thetime linee. I'll get used to it. It's still way faster than having to play the video and capture it at that speed!
