I'm not sure if my title is going to make sense with what I want to try to do but I couldn't describe it much better.
I have a HV30 and a older Pent 4 w/HT 3.0 GHz 1.0 Gig ram, computer that I edit with, probably ganna get a new one soon. I edit using CS3 mainly Premiere with a little After Effects. Anyway I was wondering about a workflow that I had been thinking about for a while.
Say I had a project and had 2 full tapes of stuff that I was going to be using. So first I capture both tapes with scene split with HDVSplit and went ahead and edited everything and finished my project, everything is good. The I delete my video files but keep my project files from Premiere or AE. Then someone says oh hey can you go re-edit that or change a title or something. Could I then re-capture the tapes and use the same filenames as before and put them in the same folder relative to my Premiere or AE project files and resume editing?
It seems like as long as you start recording in the same clip at the beginning of the tape all of the scene splits should come at the same time. It would be nice because then I could archive my footage tapes but still be able to re-edit the project if the need ever came up, but would be saving HD space at the same time.
Has anyone ever tried this or something similar?
