One-clip recording

You can record a single recording (from start to stop of recording) not as one clip but as a clip integrating several recordings.


Set [ON] in the main menu → [RECORDING SETUP] → [ONE CLIP REC].

When one-clip recording mode is selected, [1-CLIP] is displayed.

Press the REC button.

The first recording starts and [START 1*CLIP] is displayed.

Thereafter, each time recording takes place the clips are automatically linked, making a single group up to a maximum of 99 recordings.

Recording as a new clip

When you want to split the clip as a new clip, finish linking clips using one of the following operations.

  • Press and hold the <(> button for approximately two seconds while recording is paused. (When operating while recording is paused)

  • Press and hold the REC button for approximately two seconds during recording, to end recording. (When operating while recording.)

By these operations, clip linking ends and [END 1-CLIP] is displayed. A new separate clip will start at the next recording.

Ending one-clip recording mode

Set [OFF] in the main menu → [RECORDING SETUP] → [ONE CLIP REC].

Cueing up linked parts of clips

Each time recording starts, a text memo is automatically added to the recording start position so that you can cue up when playing back. You can also check the thumbnail of its position.

To automatically add a text memo to the recording start point, set [ON] in the main menu → [RECORDING SETUP] → [START TEXT MEMO].

To view or play back the point of the added text memo, select [TEXT MEMO CLIPS] in the main menu → [CLIP] → [REPOSITION] and place the cursor on the target clip.

For details, refer to “Playing back from the text memo position”.

To cue up the text memo position when playing back, set [CLIP&TEXT MEMO] in the main menu → [OTHER FUNCTIONS] → [SEEK POS SEL] and press <%>/<)> while playback is paused.

Proxy recording in one-clip recording mode

You can carry out proxy recording in one-clip recording mode.

The group proxy data also can be combined as the same type of linked clip so that you can handle it as a single clip with the P2 Viewer Plus, etc.

However, when recording proxy data on an SD memory card, be careful of the following points.

  • When you remove the SD memory card and replace it while continuously making clip links, proxy recording will not take place on the SD memory card until the subsequent clips are linked. Use after making sure that there is sufficient available space and number of files (maximum of 1000 clips can be recorded).

  • When continuing proxy recording after replacing the SD memory card part-way through, carry out the following operation.

    • Press the <(> button for approximately two seconds to finish linking, and start recording as a new clip.

  • The proxy data on the SD memory card that was discontinued during recording is not recognized as proxy data for the clip recorded on the P2 card and will remain incomplete.

When using one-clip recording mode

  • When interval recording, one-shot recording, loop recording, and variable frame rate recording functions are selected, it will not operate.

  • While continuing clip linking, menu and thumbnail operations are subject to the following restrictions. They can be operated after pressing the <(> button continuously for approximately two seconds and ending clip linking.

    • You cannot change the following menu items.


    • You can change the variable frame rate recording function to [ON] in the main menu → [SCENE FILE] → [VFR], even while continuously linking clips. In this case, clip linking ends and subsequent recordings become separate clips each time.

    • When reading/exporting to the SD memory card and reading setting files, the following menu items cannot be executed.


      All items in the main menu → [CARD FUNCTIONS]

      Main menu → [OTHER FUNCTIONS] → [USER FILE]



    • The following thumbnail items cannot be selected and operated.

      Main menu → [CLIP] → [COPY]

  • In order to make it possible to link clips in the next recording, the processing time required to end recording may take slightly longer than standard recording.

  • When playing back, fade processing of unlinked audio will not be done at the time recordings are linked within clips.

  • When editing a clip with a large number of links using nonlinear editing software, etc., the software may not operate properly depending on the type of software.

  • Refer to the support desk at the following website for the latest information on software whose operability has been confirmed.
