I'm working with a Sony (HVR-M35U HDV VTR ) deck in Premiere Pro 5.5, so far I haven't been able to preview my footage in the capture window. I've tried ever setting I can think of to help get Premiere to see my HDV deck's footage, but with no luck. When I go into my deck settings it lists the different Sony Premiere-friendly, but it only goes so far.
1. Since my deck is down in the Ms and it cuts off at D, is there a way to scroll down the drop down list to find drivers for the rest of the decks?
2. I know my deck works with my computer in both DV & HDV modes. Is there a way to manually install a deck driver into the list of Premiere-friendly decks?
Just so I'm clear, are you able to watch the HDV playback on your desktop/laptop's capture screen? I failed to mention earlier that when I capture footage, the footage is captured perfectly; it's just the playback issue that drives me a bit insane.
Also, in the steps listed for Setting Up a Device, one of the steps listed is "Go Online for Device Info", did you have to do that? I did, but I was just linked to a page with a .pdf that had hyperlinks I couldn't activate.
Just so I'm clear, are you able to watch the HDV playback on your desktop/laptop's capture screen?
No, and it was always was clear there is no display during capture of HDV material, as is clearly stated in the manual/help file. There is no video display during capture of HDV material. If you want to see what you are capturing, use the deck/camera or use HDVSplit. DV material shows during capture, but not HDV.
Since the capture works and is ingested correctly, I think everything is as it should work according to the documentation.
Like Harm said HDV does NOT show while capturing but only shows while previewing.
I seen this post from Ann ( post # 15 ) and she said there that it worked once for here but then stopped.
I just did a test capture and I can only see while previewing and not when I actually capture.
I realize I won't be able to watch the footage being captured while it's being captured, but I would like to watch it for playback (and only watching).
Right now, the only way for me to watch the playback is on the actual HDV deck, which is a bit of a pain.
