i was capturing footage from my D8 camcorder via IEEE, but it is starting to give me trouble

i am looking at an external company to capture my footage

when i capture, i get an AVI file

what format do i want them to create for me to use in PE 10?




PS my Beta decks don't function anymore either

    Digital8 should capture right into Premiere Elements! I'm not sure why you're having trouble.


    But if your service bureau captures the video over a FireWire connection, they should be able to deliver it to you as DV-AVIs.


    In fact, INSIST on it. Don't let them give you a DVD or an AVI other than DV.


    Meantime, have you looked into a free program called WinDV? It also will capture your miniDV or Digital8 as DV-AVIs, and it can be less challenging than Premiere Elements.
