Split at scene markers to multiple files?

Harry's Tools was perfect tool to do this when I was running VRD Plus under WinXP
and cutting MPG2 files.

But his tools don't seem to run VRD TVS4 under XP or run at all under Win7 x64 and Harry doesn't seem to be around here anymore to ask.

VRD seems like the perfect program to have this feature but never did.

Can anyone give me some help on how to split a AVCHD MTS file into multiple files?
These are recordings of bands and I want to split each song into separate file.

thanks

Open the file in the main VRD interface. Set the start/end points to a single music video. Click Trim Unselected. Now click Ctrl+B and queue to batch. Repeat for each music video, then when you're done run the batch manager to output each one to a separate file.

I do this all the time when separating individual TV shows from ripped DVDs. Rather then open each title one by one I open the one long title that contains all episodes and chop it up using the method I described above. Doesn't take more then a few minutes to queue them up.

Thanks Dan.
Although probably more than twice the work as splitting at scene markers,
your method is an alternative.

I do wish this feature would be implemented.
It doesn't look that hard to implement and would be very useful.

Also I would be very happy with such a feature!

Why not use the Scene-list entries to provide such a feature (as I suggested starting http://www.videoredo.net/msgBoard/showpost.php?p=75673&postcount=22) ?
In the Scene-list there are all the scenes patiently waiting for some sort of output.
We just need an additional (right-click) option to perform individual output for each selected scene-list entry (and/or for each group of selected EDLs).
That option may internally send the selected scenes to Batch manager and let Mr. Batch do the job. It doesn't look that hard to implement and would be very useful. ;)

This looks promising to me. I have a ton of family tapes with multiple events on a given 2 hour tape. Was really hoping not to buy another video editor since VRD TVS5 has been my go to for everything else. This apparently has been a low priority wish list item for years. Has it ever been addressed?
