The other night, I captured live video for the first time from a Canon XHA1s direct to computer. I didn't use OnLocation becaause I was unfamiliar with it. The captured files seem to cause problems in Premiere. When I imported them into the project, Premiere froze for a long while with the yellow "Media Pending message" Afterwards, every time I open the project, I get the same message and it takes forever to clear.
I also simultaneously recorded to tape, but I understand there is some quality difference. Anyway, I was hoping to save capturing time by going live, but now am losing a couple of days trying to figure out what is wrong. The files are very long - a little over an hour each. I removed the 'live' captured files from the project and the program runs okay with video captured from tape.
I started a new project with the same files and had the same problem. Project setting is HDV
For "live" video I think you need to learn how to use OnLocation
I started to and used it to set up cameras, etc. But when I did a test capture, it crashed once - blue screen of death type. Didn't want to take a chance. No idea what happened, but it hasn't happened again.
But if I capture live in Premiere, it should still work. The files are there, but they crash Premiere and AME. I put them on timeline individually and exported them direct out (not AME) with matched settings. We'll see what happens when I bring them into the project. Taking a while, though.
