i captured video on my old desktop (digiVCap) , i have Premiere 1.5, but wanted to use my new latop w/i7 cores to edit
i couldn't get v1.5 to install so found premiere elements & have v10 installed
i downloaded & installed the matrox codecs after installing premiere elements
premiere elements loads my videos and plays audio only
do i need to uninstall/reinstall to pick up the codecs (or a reboot)??
the videos play fine on the laptop using divx (even before installing the matrox codecs)
Do those matrox codecs indicate these 2 things...
1-they will work without the matrox hardware
2-they will work with P-Elements and not just P-Pro
Without both being stated on the matrox download page, you may be out of luck
I'm with John. Those matrox codecs are probably not something Premiere Elements can work with.
What type of video source or camcorder are those videos coming from? There is probably a workflow or device that will create an editable format.
i can capture in the following formats:
i am using Matrox AVI as that was the format i could edit with Premiere 6 & 1.5
should is use 1 of the others for editing with P-Elements?
The two codecs that are NOT matrox will edit on a computer that does not have the matrox hardware
For a SD (standard definition) tape based camera you would use DV AVI
For an HD (high definition) tape based camera you would use HDV
Both of those are captured via Firewire aka 1394
Wait. What? You're getting video from a camcorder with an IEEE-1394 connection?
Then why are you using a digitizer at all? Video captured over a FireWirec connection (miniDV or HDV) should be captured by Premiere Elements through an IEEE-1394 and it will be editable as is.
Why are you getting this Matrox device in the mix? It's at the root of your problems!
i bought this system years ago
i haven't done any editing in a while so i thought i better grab the video off my tapes before they deteriorate
i have a matrox RT.X100 card & Premiere 1.5 and that was what i always captured
since my laptop has more power than my old desktop i was hoping to edit on there, once i had captured the video
a lot has improved since then, & i have lightroom 3 and thought i would get the elements 10 (for photoshop editing of lightroom photos) and get p-elements 10 for doing the videos
i don't have a 1394 interface on this laptop, but i'm sure my older 1 does
so i should just capture using e10?
I highly recommend against using a capture card or a cheap digitizer like Pinnacle's Dazzle. You'll only run into the same issues as you've had with the Maxtor video.
As the FAQs to the right of this forum suggest, your best solutions are the Canopus AVDC and (if you can still find them) the ADS Pyro AV Link.
chasing my tail now...
tried to install p-e 10 on my desktop & i don't meet the hardware requirements...(probably missing SSE2 instructions)
i am still trying to find a 1394 cable to go to my old laptop
Does your laptop have an ExpressCard Slot, or a PCMCIA Slot?
I have used the SIIG IEEE-1394A for PCMCIA, and it worked fine.
For my IEEE-1394B (FW-800), I use the StarTec ExpressCard, but this is their IEEE-1394A ExpressCard.
Those are NOT the cheapest of each type of card, which start at around US $ 14.00.
i have installed p-e on another desktop that has the correct 1394 connector
it installed fine, i plugged my camcorder in & it installed the device driver
but, i don't see my DV camera in p-e?
Does Windows see the camera?
When plugged-in, and you turn it on, do you hear the "bing-bong," and see a Windows pop-up, saying that the camera has been recognized?
If not, go to Control Panel>System>Hardware>Device Manager, and look for the camera. Any warning, or error messages?
i see the camera in device manager (& get the bing-bong when turned on)
i was trying to capture from 'organizer'
i turned my dv camera on & it stared p-e 10
this time 'get from media' wasn't greyed out & i am capturing!!
Yes, the Capture module is only in PrE (or PrPro, if one had that program). Glad that all is working well, especially as troubleshooting FW problems can take some time - checking cables, connectors on camera/computer and then the FW card/chip, and its driver, etc.
It goes away
