Avid Express Pro / Media Composer and Capturing

If there is one piece of advice I can give when capturing your media it is that you need to label your tapes and name them, in the capture tool, the exact name of that particular tape. If you have several tapes that might correlate with the same name just simply number them in order by date or just numerically. The main reason for this comes into play with batch capture. If you delete your media to save hard drive space or more than likely it is lost when you least expect it. This is not a problem if you did your job. Avid uses the time code from your video cassette to navigate to the various frames. Every tape has the same time code so if you put in the wrong tape then your Avid system will go out a search those time codes on the tape in the deck, right or wrong and batch capture that media. So if you name your tapes correctly and insert the tape Avid asks for then there will be no worries of capturing the wrong media. Just remember do not forget to name your tapes in your Avid the same name that your write on your tapes!
