Spanned clips

It appears that currently spanned clips, like from a C300, are displayed and treated as individual files. It would be nice if these could be displayed and/or converted as a  single contiguous clip.

You are right. Thanks for reporting. We already have it on our radar and are currently evaluating the effort required for implementing this but this is very likely a post 1.0 feature.

Do you have other concrete cameras than the C300 that use spanning that you would like this for?

Any professional camera that records to FAT32-formatted cards uses spanning. This kicks in whenever the file being recorded exceeds 4GB. I don't know all of the applicable cameras, but Panasonic P2 and RED come to mind. I believe it also affects media recorded on external monitor/recorders, like Odyssey, Atomos, etc.

Thanks for the explanation!

I should have been more specific. Yes, we're aware of that, but since there is not one generic solution for identifying spanned clips and this has to be evaluated/tested for each camera or manufacturer this was more about statistics with which cameras, recorders our users run into this to help prioritize camera/recorder brands/models. 

As far as priority, I would think Panasonic P2 would be the next important after Canon.
